    This was the Tritons’ third-consecutive win after losing their first of the season over a week ago against San Francisco State. The loss had snapped a remarkable 22-game winning streak. UCSD now looks poised to begin a new streak.

    Triton goalies — sophomore Kami Poma and freshman Jamie Lautenschleger — each had three saves and helped to ensure UCSD’s victory.

    Senior Erika Alfredson put UCSD on the board first, scoring off an excellent pass from teammate Julia Cuder at the 27:55 mark in the first half.

    Alfredson struck again 55:53 into the game off of a rebound from Elizabeth Hughes’ shot. Sophomore Kristin Jones tacked on the third Triton goal with a breakaway run set up by a pass from Laura Dooly.

    Freshman Britni Wenck closed out the scoring for UCSD by heading in a Christine Wensel corner kick with a minute left in the game.

    Golden Eagle goalie Alicia Parkhouse was tormented by the Tritons all day as they outshot Cal State L.A. 19-8. Parkhouse finished the game with seven saves.

    The Tritons also controlled the ball for the majority of the game and posted six corner kicks to zero by Cal State L.A.

    UCSD has an amazing .200 shot percentage so far this season. The Tritons average 16.7 shots and 3.3 goals per game — the most in the league.

    The Tritons, ranked sixth after a loss last week to San Francisco State, improved to 8-1 overall and 6-1 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association

    The Golden Eagles remain winless in league with a 0-6-1 record and are 2-7-1 overall.

    The Tritons will next face UC Davis in league action at home, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m.

    UCSD then plays Chico State on Sunday at 12:30 p.m.
