Sept. 22, 2013
Berkeley, Calif. - Long Beach State held well defensively and mounted a late fourth-quarter comeback, tying the game with No. 6 UC Santa Barbara at 4-4. However, Matt Gronow of the Gauchos scored in the closing seconds to hand the 49ers a 5-4 loss.
UC Santa Barbara opened up the game by scoring a goal in the first possession, and opened up a quick 2-0 lead. The 49ers defense stiffened at that point, holding the Gauchos scoreless for the rest of the period, while Nolan McConnell got the 49ers on the board in the final minute.
The teams traded goals late in the second quarter, as Milos Vrzic pulled the 49ers back within one goal at 3-2. Only UCSB scored in the third quarter, one goal from Eric Van de Mortel as the Gauchos regained the lead at 4-2.
With four minutes left in the fourth quarter Vrzic scored again, and Devin Mefford found the net on the next possession to tie the game at 4-4.
Long Beach State finishes off the NorCal Tournament by playing No. 10 Pepperdine in the 7th place game at 2 p.m.
