Chris Pontius Named Golden1 Student-Athlete of the Week

Sept. 10, 2007

Chris Pontius helped lead the ninth-ranked UCSB men's soccer team to its first victory of the season this past Friday as he tallied the game-winner against Wisconsin-Milwaukee at Harder Stadium.

Pontius scored his first goal of the season (and fifth of his career) just 3:21 into the Gauchos' 2-0 win over the Panthers when he buried a rebound off of a corner kick.

A junior midfielder from Yorba Linda, Pontius broke UCSB out of its scoring slump as the Gauchos had been shutout by Gonzaga in their previous outing.
