Borchich's Strike Lifts UCSB to 1-0 Victory

Oct. 8, 2004

Fullerton, Calif. - UC Santa Barbara senior Jennifer Borcich tallied her ninth goal of the season in the 74th minute and goalkeeper Catherine Burson made seven saves on the night to lift the Gauchos to the 1-0 victory on Friday at Titan Stadium.

Fullerton falls to 4-7-1 overall, 0-1-1 in the Big West. UCSB improves to 8-4-1 and remains unbeaten in conference play at 3-0.

Borcich was set up perfectly by teammate Randi Johns, who made the short pass to the middle of the penalty area, giving Borcich a wide open strike. The ball sailed past Fullerton keeper Karen Bardsley into the upper right hand corner for the only tally of the match.

The Titans outshot the Gauchos, 17-8, and had seven corners to none for UCSB, but could not find the back of the net as Fullerton was shutout for the sixth time this season -- just one off the school record of seven set during the 2003 season.

Kandace Wilson led the Titans with four shots on the night while Bardsley made two saves in the loss.

Cal State Fullerton returns to action on Sunday afternoon (Oct. 10) at 1 p.m. as they take on defending conference champion Cal Poly at Titan Stadium.
