Junior Arlene Tuttle's goal in the 19th minute was all the scoring the Aggies would need as UC Davis defeated Cal State L.A., 4-0, in a California Collegiate Athletic Association women's soccer game Friday afternoon.

Tuttle deposited the shot from just in front of the net for her first goal of the season. Junior Leifa Mayers made it 2-0 in the 38th minute when junior Jacque Kocer's long pass from the Aggie side of the field took a big bounced in front of the Golden Eagle net. Mayer's beat her defender and Herrera to the ball and re-directed it with her chest into the net for her fifth goal of the season, temporarily tying her with Shannon Mally for the team lead.
With less than four minutes to play in the first half, Mally regained the team scoring lead as she took a pass from Lindsey Raymond and was one-on-one with Herrera, who she beat for the 3-0 lead and her sixth goal of the year.
