Hello Aggie Sports Fans! Last Saturday I went over to Aggie Stadium and watch our men’s soccer team take on the Cal State Northridge Matadores, and this game tested the patience of all spectators. In the end though, the home team pulled off the victory with an Ethan Shawlee header with two minutes left in second over time. The few Aggie Fans in attendance went crazy as the ball crossed the plane.
This was a game featuring the UC Davis Aggies and UC Riverside Highlanders on Wednesday the 13th. After watching the game, I decided that the easiest way to evaluate the game was by grading each team by category. The Ags prevailed 1-0 in a slim overtime victory
Let’s not kid ourselves. The rivalry that exists between Cal Poly and UC Davis is not exactly legendary in college athletics. It’s not as heated as that of Ohio State and Michigan and it doesn’t reach the same caliber as USC and UCLA. Yet, it is undeniable that any competition against our rivals from the Central Coast instantly becomes more interesting than “just another matchup.”
