8/19: College Men’s Soccer: Westmont at UCSB


The Gauchos have dominated Westmont in this traditional season opener, including a 3-0 victory last year, but then the Warriors went on to capture their first conference championship since 2002 and finish with an 11-5-1 record in Coach Dave Wolf’s 26th season. Westmont’s starters include junior defender Tim Heiduk (Dos Pueblos High) and sophomore goalkeeper Lalo Delgado (Carpinteria). UCSB is coming off a 10-7-3 season and regular-season Big West title in Tim Vom Steeg’s 18th year as coach. The Gauchos suffered a blow when midfielder Kevin Feucht, their leading scorer in 2016, suffered a season-ending knee injury in practice. Newcomers include forward Rodney Michael, the California Gatorade Player of the Year from Dunn School. 7pm. Harder Stadium, UCSB. $8-$10. Call 893-UCSB (8272) or visit ucsbgauchos.com.
