NCAA 1. @ Anteater Stadium, Irvine. KO 14:00* $10 Admission. $10 Parking. No teamsheets. ATT. 315
U C Irvine 2 v 2 Gonzaga (AGGET).
Another athletics track, this one in blue but at least there were no other markings on the grass. Good views across to John Wayne airport. Bleachers stand and some refreshments. Match did not KO on time as the women's game went to extra time.
Absorbing encounter with the early goal from the visitors setting the game up nicely. Two goals in two minutes just after the half hour, the second a well taken, curling effort from the edge of the box, gave the home side a 2-1 lead at half time.
The visitors levelled on 70 minutes but although both sides had chances to win it, neither could find the net. On to the extra time because we can't have a draw, nobody scored so it was a draw, pointless exercise unless you have penalties to get a result.
Long drive to the motel in late Sunday afternoon traffic but still time for a curry and they served Sierra Nevada beer.
