Gaucho soccer closed out its regular season Saturday, taking down UC Riverside 2-0 on senior night. Junior forward Luis Silva score both goals for UCSB, each of which came in the second half.
Seniors Sam Hayden, Michael Boxall and Joe Eubanks each played extensive minutes for the Gauchos after a special pre-game introduction from UCSB Athletics Director Bill Mahoney. Hayden registered his 23rd career shutout, moving into fourth place on UCSB’s all-time list, with Boxall adding to his team-record minutes total.
With UC Irvine beating Cal State Fullerton, UCSB takes second place in the Big West and will host Cal Poly in the tournament semifinal match at Harder Stadium on Wednesday.
