Top-10 losses

Chico State 1, No. 6 UC San Diego 0 (OT) Box Score

LA JOLLA, Calif. -- Justin Saul had witnessed Justin Walmsley rising up to strike a game-winning header two times before. So when he lined up for a free kick from 30 yards out in overtime at UC San Diego Sunday, he knew just what he needed to do. Then he did it, delivering a perfect ball to the back post that Walmsley headed back across the face of the goalkeeper before it nestled into the back of the net for a 1-0 victory against the 6th-ranked Tritons.

The Wildcats also earned their fourth shutout in a row, confirming that UC San Diego and it's top-ranked defense in Division II, has some company in the conversation regarding the CCAA's top defensive squad.

Chico State, which did not allow a shot on goal Friday at Cal Poly Pomona, kept the Tritons off target for the first 88-plus minutes Sunday before Sam Evans recorded a pair of saves in the final 1:07 to preserve the tie.

Evans earned his 20th career shutout Sunday, matching him with Tom Carter for the second-most in Chico State history and drawing him within two of all-time leader Tom Liner.

The Wildcats, ranked No. 4 in the West and just outside of the top-25 nationally entering the weekend, improved to 10-2-0 overall and 8-2-0 in the CCAA. UC San Diego, No. 1 in the West and No. 6 in the nation, fell to 9-2-1 overall, 7-2-1 in the CCAA, and from first to third in the CCAA South Division standings.

Chico State outshot UC San Diego 15-10 and earned a 4-0 edge in corner kicks.

Missouri-St. Louis 2, No. 8 Rockhurst 1 Box Score

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Sophomore Jon Huelsman scored twice in the first half to help Missouri-St. Louis to a 2-1 win at No. 8 Rockhurst on Sunday afternoon in Great Lakes Valley Conference action.

The win marks the second time in the last 10 days that the Tritons have defeated a top-10 opponent, having knocked off then-No. 4 Drury at home on October 4. It is also the second consecutive year UMSL has edged nationally ranked Rockhurst during the regular season with the Tritons getting a 1-0 overtime win at home last season when the Hawks were ranked fifth.

UMSL evens its ledger at 6-6 overall with the win, including 5-5 in the GLVC. Rockhurst, which suffered its first league loss of the year, drops to 9-2-1 overall and 8-1-1 in the conference. The home GLVC loss for the Hawks was also their first a 1-0 defeat to Bellarmine during the 2010 season.

Huelsman's goals came within a span of six minutes to give UMSL a 2-0 lead. His first tally came at the 31:17 mark off a shot from 25-yards out into the upper left of the goal with the assist to freshman Bronson Melvin. Huelsman, who leads the team with five goals -- three of which have come this weekend -- then scored off a direct kick from 20 yards inside the left post.

Rockhurst got on the board with 10:05 to play when All-American Mark Magee connected on a shot from 15 yards inside the right post that got past Tritons keeper Nick Lenkman.

Lenkman improved to 4-1 in goal, recording six saves as Rockhurst fired 24 shots, landing seven on target. The Tritons were held to four shots, all of which came off the foot of Hueslman.
