Release: Thursday 09/16/2010 

LA JOLLA, Calif. - The UC San Diego women's soccer team experienced a weekend of ups and downs to start the California Collegiate Athletic Association schedule.

The Tritons suffered a 3-1 loss to Cal State L.A. Friday before defeating Cal State Dominguez Hills 3-0 on Sunday. Those two South Division rivals brought out the best and worst in UCSD and now, the Tritons will see what challenges the North Division has to offer.

UCSD is 1-1 in the CCAA and 3-1 overall, with all four of those matches being played at home. A four-match road swing starts Friday for the Tritons, who will take on Humboldt State and Sonoma State this weekend.

So far in 2010, UCSD has featured a balanced attack with seven players registering goals. Annette Ilg paces the squad with three scores, while Lisa Bradley, Alyssa Newcomer and Gabi Hernandez have added two apiece. Sara Bolton holds the team lead in assists with three, all of which came in the season opener against Dominican.

UCSD, ranked at No. 25 in the latest Division II poll ranked this week, is one of three CCAA teams to be featured among the top squads nationally. The other two conference schools are CSULA (No. 7) and Cal State San Bernardino (No. 13).

The Tritons' match this Friday against HSU will start at 7 p.m. The Lumberjacks are 0-4 overall and 0-2 in league play. This past weekend HSU hosted CSUSB and Cal Poly Pomona and ended up dropping 2-0 and 1-0 decisions, respectively. Kim Carroll and Arielle Kern lead the Lumberjacks in shots, with seven apiece. UCSD owns an 8-0-1 all-time advantage against HSU.

Sunday's opponent for the Tritons, SSU, also has seen somewhat lackluster results so far in 2010. The Seawolves are 1-1-1 overall and 0-1-1 in league play. In the CCAA's opening weekend, SSU played to a 0-0 draw with CPP and then suffered a 4-0 loss to CSUSB. The Seawolves have tallied two goals this season, one coming from Taylor Colacion and the other recorded by Jaci Davey. UCSD is undefeated against SSU in the all-time series, holding a 14-0-0 mark.  Kickoff Sunday is set for 11:30 a.m.
