DAVIS, Calif. -- Senior Balazs Erdelyi registered a career-high for goals as he finished eight times to lead No. 3 Pacific against No. 11 UC Davis 22-10 Friday.

Senior Goran Tomasevic and junior Alex Obert each added four goals while Kristian Laczkovics chipped in three. Senior Balasz Szabo tallied two while freshman Ben Stevenson rounded out the scoring with a goal.

Erdelyi finish one goal shy of tying his own best of nine goals in a match, setting a new season high. Erdelyi scored four in the first quarter and three in the third. He converted eight of his 10 shots into goals.
