UCSC vs. Southwestern

 

 

 

GEORGETOWN, TX.--Dusting off that tough defeat, the Santa Cruz squad headed to greater Austin to Southwestern University where they faced the Southwestern Pirates at home. This game was much more slow-paced after the barrage at Trinity, yet the Banana Slugs still struggled to find the back of the net. The Pirates got on the board first when a forward broke away from the Santa Cruz defense, but the Banana slugs answered back with a goal from Roxanne Beltran shortly after making it 1-1 through the first half. The two teams battled through the second half and two overtimes but still no victor emerged. UCSC striker Aubrey Mapes endured a concussion in the match, but has nicely recovered from the injury endured on the road.
