    Men’s Soccer

    The 7th Annual UCSD Club Soccer Invitational took place this past Saturday and Sunday at Warren Field. UCSD’s men started the weekend by defeating UC Riverside. In their second group game, the Tritons faced off against Cal Poly San Luis Obispo’s A team. The scoreboard remained blank in the first half, but Cal Poly San Luis Obispo scored two goals in quick succession in the second half to defeat UCSD. UCSD dominated the third-place game, where they were placed in against the University of Southern California and scored on a penalty kick to secure a third-place finish for UCSD.

    Baseball

    This past weekend, the Tritons kept up their winning ways by sweeping the University of Arizona in a home series at Valhalla High School. In the first nine-inning game, the Tritons exploded for eight runs in the seventh inning to defeat the Wildcats 15–5.

    In the second game, the score was leveled at five apiece when senior Kevin Goulette came up clutch in the bottom of the sixth inning with a pinch-hit two-out double to drive in the go-ahead run to win 6–5.

    In the last game on Sunday, sophomore Yousef Koutnik took the mound and had a scoreless start through five innings. The Tritons scored 10 runs in those five innings to finish the game off with another mercy in five innings. The Tritons won the last game 10–0.

    W. Rugby

    The UCSD women’s rugby team took on nationals this past weekend in New Mexico. The Tritons played the University of New Mexico on Friday and fell behind in the first few minutes of the match. Injuries took out two major players, and the Tritons were not able to make up the ground they lost in the beginning, falling to the Lobos by 12 points. On the second day, the Tritons went up against UC Berkeley. UCSD was able to score the first try and, although UC Berkeley kept the score close in the first half, the Tritons were able to pull away in the second half 53–17.

    Roller Hockey

    From April 8 through April 12, the UCSD roller hockey club battled its way to a final four appearance in the 2015 National Collegiate Roller Hockey Association Division-II National Championship Tournament. After finishing the regular season with an impressive 15–1 record, the Tritons were placed in the top pool of the tournament along with the University of Western Michigan, University of Arkansas and Farmingdale State University. The first round-robin game for the Tritons turned out to be their easiest of the three as they took down Western Michigan 8–3. In the second of the round-robin games, UCSD fell 5–4 to the University of Arkansas. In the last game of the round robin, the Tritons lost a close game to Farmingdale 2–1 and finished third in pool play. The Tritons took down the University of Denver Pioneers 9–4 in the first elimination game. In the Elite Eight, UCSD defeated Eastern Carolina University 4–3 to reach the final four. The semifinal was a much-anticipated rematch between UCSD and Farmingdale State, but the blue and gold could not hold and lost to Farmingdale 6–3.
