The Tulsa men's soccer team dropped a 2-1 decision to UC Davis on Friday night at the SMU Classic in Dallas, Texas. TU fell to 3-3 on the season, while the Aggies moved to 2-1-4 overall.

"UC Davis played well and we just didn't get enough good performances today," Head Coach Tom McIntosh said. "We created enough chances, and their goalkeeper made a big save, but we were sloppy in our passes today. We got punished for our mistakes and we have to learn from them. I think we've learned a good lesson in how we approach a game and the concentration level that is required."

Ryan Gross scored both of UC Davis' goals, including one in the 18th minute and one in the 59th minute to give the Aggies a two-goal cushion. Cristian Mata brought TU to within one goal in the 67th minute as he punched in a corner kick taken by his brother, Omar Mata.

Tulsa had a 15-11 advantage in shots, including an 8-5 lead in shots on goal, but couldn't get a second goal.

Abe Matamoros hand Cristian each had three shots in the contest, while Omar, Tony Rocha and Quinn Starker all had two attempts. Mark Pais logged all 90 minutes in goal and picked up three saves.

Tulsa will return to action on Sunday, Sept. 16th against Oakland beginning at 12 noon in the SMU Classic.
