UC SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Leroy Zeller saved all nine shots on goal and UCSB remained unbeaten in the Big West as they shutout Sacramento State 3-0 at Harder Stadium.

Zeller and the Gauchos defense have not allowed a goal in four straight games going 3-0-1 in that span.

Ten minutes later the Gauchos struck again as sophomore Nemo Philipp netted his first goal of his collegiate career.

His left-footed blast had UCSB up 2-0 at half.

Salvador Aguilar added a goal in the 79th minute as UCSB improved to 5-0-2 in the Big West and 9-3-4 overall.
