SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Krystal Sandza, a sophomore midfielder, scored three goals to lead the UC Santa Barbara women's team to a 3-1 victory over visiting TCU on Friday night. With the loss, the Horned Frogs fell to 1-2-1 on the season.

Sandza, who had not scored a goal in UCSB's first two matches this season, made up for lost time. She took a feed from senior forward Erica Perrotta at the 6:20 mark in the first half and blasted a shot that hit the post and deflected into the net. Sandza made it 2-0 UCSB at 24:58 when she took a pass from sophomore forward Jennifer Borcich and drilled a shot past Horned Frog goalkeeper Ruth DeJong from about 15 yards out straightaway.

TCU cut the gap to 2-1 with just 39 seconds remaining in the first half. Nicole Carman pounded a perfect shot from 25 yards out into the upper right corner of the goal. Jenny Swanson assisted on the goal. Carman now leads the team with three goals scored.

Neither team scored again until the 78:45 mark when Sandza put the icing on the cake. She tallied the final goal from near the top of the box off of another feed from Borcich.

Freshman goalkeeper Jamie Considine, making her first start as a Gaucho, picked up the win. UCSB outshot TCU by a 25-8 margin and DeJong, the Horned Frogs' goalkeeper came up with eight saves.
