Write Up

UGMO came into the Santa Barbara Invite looking to jump start its Spring 2006 season with a bang. Despite injuries to some key players and Dan Gillick having to miss the trip, everyone came in fired up, and UGMO easily defeated our first two opponents in pool play - UCLA and Duke. The next game was against the Black Tide of Santa Barbara. The two teams pretty much traded points but Santa Barbara got a break right before half to take it 7-6. After half time, both teams continued to trade points but Santa Barbara pulled away towards the end of the game to win it 13-9. After a bye, UGMO played its crossover game against Humboldt State. With UGMO coming out flat, Humboldt took an early advantage and despite a furious comeback at the end of the game, UGMO lost 13-10. This sent us to the B bracket.

On Sunday, UGMO played furiously, disappointed at the result of the last game on Saturday. Through a bit of wind, UGMO handily defeated all three opponents on Sunday - Davis, Claremont, and Duke - to take the B bracket championship. Notable performances from the weekend were the solid play of our vets Boo, Nat, Stryder, and Chreggers and the stellar UGMO debut from rookies Chester, Choon, Wes, and Mateo. Next up in 2 weeks is the Trouble in Vegas tournament which, with its 32 team bracket and top-tiered teams, should be a showcase for UGMO's potential and ability.

Write Up

UGMO came into the Bay Area Sectionals tournament as the second seed in the Bay and ended up the second seed. UGMO tore through pool play giving up an average of about 4 goals per game to the opposition. It seemed that UGMO had finally reached its potential and both the rookies and the veterans were gelling together.

On Sunday morning, UGMO steamrolled through semifinals beating a worthy LPC opponent 15 to 4, a team whom they had lost to in the DUI finals a week before. After LPC came finals against national powerhouse Stanford University. UGMO got the early break to go to 4-2 but Stanford came back and took halftime 8 to 6. UGMO never fully recovered from this Stanford run and despite a late comeback lost to Stanford 15 to 12. After this finals game, UGMO beat LPC again for 2nd place in the bay area. UGMO looks to be a top 5 seed at regionals this year and with two bids available for Nationals are hoping to punch a ticket to Columbus, Ohio for the end of May. lost to last week.

Write Up

UGMO came into the Northwest Regionals tournament as the fifth seed in the region and ended up finishing fourth. Unfortunately, after a hard-fought victory against Western Washington on Sunday morning, UGMO could not find the energy to defeat a very strong UBC team. The loss to UBC ended UGMO's season.

UGMO finished 2006 ranked 21st in the country by the UPA. Although we lose many key contributers, including captains Boo and Nat, we will come back strong in 2007 with 13 A-team returners.

UGMO You Know!
