UCSB 1 Cal Poly 4

During halftime, the video feed encountered an issue, and it never recovered.  I could write up a recap of what I observed in the first half, but I don’t think it’s worthwhile to tell just half a story, especially when it’s the first half and doesn’t include the end.  Given how the scoreline finished, it’s probably for the best.

To take a quick saunter down memory lane, we started divisional play in great shape with a 3-0-1 record.  During divisional play, we could only manage a 1-3-2 record or just 5 points from 6 matches.  We went from a strong lead to earn the #1 seed, to being behind but still in control of our own top seed destiny, to being a win from securing the #2 seed, to being another win from securing the #2 seed, to now needing Davis to get a result versus Sac State on Sunday for the #2 seed.

Should Sac State win on Sunday, we would be relegated to the #3 seed and play at CSUN this Wednesday

Should Davis do us a solid and not allow Sac State to win, we would host UCR this Wednesday.

While having a more fit Ammer and possibly Billingsley back for our next match improves our lot, our North results represent an obvious cause for concern.  Perhaps we can regain the form we enjoyed when we played the South nearly a month ago by playing the South again.

In any case, our seeding destiny is now in the hands of Davis and Sac State.
