    MEN’S RUGBY

    Men’s rugby lost its home opener 17-8 to Arizona State University last Saturday at UCSD.

    Flanker Nate Miller put UCSD on the board first, sinking a penalty kick to give UCSD a 3-0 lead.

    That would hold for most of the first half, until the Sun Devils capitalized on a UCSD turnover and scored at the 32-minute mark to grab a 5-3 lead.

    UCSD jumped out of the gates in the second half when Mike Hurley scored early to give UCSD an 8-5 lead.

    However, it wasn’t enough because ASU scored on its second possession of the half to regain the lead at 10-8. They then shut the door on UCSD, scoring off a break on the wing from 50 meters, giving ASU the 17-8 final score.

    Women’s Lacrosse

    UCSD women’s lacrosse had a tough weekend, going winless with losses to both University of Arizona and LMU.

    Seeking to give new coach Derek Wiback his first victory, UCSD jumped out to a 4-0 lead against LMU Saturday night.

    However, it wasn’t enough when LMU used good ball movement to eventually overcome UCSD 9-6. Megan Wemmer scored two goals in the game for UCSD.

    Sunday’s University of Arizona match was much of the same for UCSD, which looks to pick up its first victory next weekend against UCLA.
