SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Kristin Aja scored in the sixth minute and Krystyn Lizak posted her second shutout of the season as UC Davis posted a 2-0 victory over Sacramento State in a women's soccer game Sunday afternoon at Hornet Soccer Field.

With the win the Aggies improve to 5-8-1 on the season while the Hornets fall to 2-12-0.

The score remained 1-0 through halftime as Lizak made three first-half saves to keep the Aggies up by a goal.
