On Saturday April 2nd, the UCSB Gauchos travelled down to LA to take on Division rival Loyola Marymount. The Lions from LMU were determined and gave the gauchos all they can handle, but in the end, UCSB kept its poise and put the game away in overtime.

UCSB scored the first two goals of the game, with Johnny Morgan netting his first and CJ Jacobs striking for one. LMU answered with two goals of their own tieing the score at two. Aaron Hemeon stuck his first goal of the game late in the quarter to end the stanza at 3-2 in favor of the gauchos.

The second quarter began with another tally from Hemeon, his second of three on the day. Hemeon also dished one assist to earn player of the game. The Lions from LMU held strong and came back scoring three goals of their own, taking their only lead of the game. However, Aaron Hemeon finished his hat trick by scoring unassisted to tie the score at 5 going into halftime. Also worth noting, Dave Kurtman had a great day on defense thwarting LMU’s best attackman holding him scoreless the entire game.

The Gauchos and Lions traded goals in third quarter. CJ jacobs accounted for two goals and Kevin Bowles added one to bring the lead to 8-7 in favor of the Gauchos. Entering the fourth quarter, UCSB came out firing scoring the first two goals of the fourth. Johnny Morgan received a pass from Jacobs and buried it, and then minutes later, Morgan received a pass from Taylor Gilbert and scored his third of the game. Going up 10-7, the Lions from LMU refused to lie down and managed to push through and score three goals of their own to tie the score and bring the game into overtime.

UCSB won the opening face off in overtime and had three opportunities that just missed. LMU cleared the ball and Andrew Noto made the save of the game to keep the hope alive. A minute later, Kevin Bowles fed a cutting Jamie Bridgman, who put it in the back of the net for the game winner.

It was truly a gutsy performance from the UCSB Gauchos. The Gauchos had three players score three goals, CJ Jacobs, Aaron Hemeon, and Johnny Morgan. SB is now undefeated in their division and take on the Bruins from UCLA next weekend.
