Men's soccer team finishes 'best in the west' with 21-2 record

The UCSC men's soccer team, coached by Paul Holocher (far left), had its best season ever, finishing as the best team in the West Region of the NCAA Division III, with a 21-2-0 record and a No. 5 NCAA Division III ranking in the final National Soccer Coaches Association of America/Adidas poll.

In the NCAA Tournament, the Slugs defeated the Linfield (Ore.) Wildcats on November 15 by a score of 2-1 in the West Regional Semifinals. (Linfield accounted for the Slug's only regular-season loss.) UCSC went on to defeat host University of Redlands 1-0 on November 16 in the West Regional Final (see article). The game's lone goal was scored late in the second-half on a soggy field by senior Kevin Anderson on a pass from sophomore Bryan Baird.

The season ended for the Slugs on November 23 when they were defeated 3-0 by the Trinity (Texas) Tigers in the NCAA Division III Quarterfinals in San Antonio.
