Shocktoberfest: TIANXIANG ZHENG | Photo Intern IT'S LIT Vancouver-based DJ Ekali performed as the opening act at ASUCI's annual Shocktoberfest. By Jared Alokozai Staff Writer A&E Over 5,000 people crammed into the Bren Events Center last Friday night to revel in ASUCI’s biggest fall quarter production, Shocktoberfest. Thanks to the high-profile headliners, as usual, this year’s tickets sold out fast. Those lucky enough to get in inaugurated the upcoming basketball season before diving UCI Climbs Atop Conference With Two Straight Victories sigh descended upon Anteater Stadium. For many fans in attendance, the scene had been all too familiar with one that had occurred just five days ago. For the second straight time at home, UCI had staggered out of the pitch, and the Mustangs, much like the Matadors had done two weeks ago, would capitalize on it. This time around, however, the ‘Eaters kept their poise, going on a steady attack that came into fruition with a crucial equalizer and subsequent game winner. Junior midfielder Grayson Galbraith, who went down in the 29th minute on a hard foul, kept a “blue mind” and returned in the second half to drive in the equalizer. “One of our team mottos is ‘blue mind’ … [it means] to always stay cool in moments of adversity or craziness,” said Galbraith. In the first half, the game got off to a chippy start, with both teams jostling for position. Cal Poly, who is second in the nation for yellow and red cards would go on to pick up three yellow cards and fifteen fouls as the ‘Eaters collected two yellow cards and 11 fouls of their own. As the ‘Eaters missed a few opportunities that were turned over off of miscues, Cal Poly began to assert themselves. On a momentary lapse on defense in the 32nd minute, Cal Poly drove the ball up the right flank and crossed it into the box, where freshman forward Jessica Johnson quickly gathered and flung it straight toward UCI freshman keeper Maddie Newsom and a number of ‘Eater defenders who made it back to protect home. As Johnson’s shot was sent away, the rebound descended upon junior midfielder Emily Hensen, who found a clear window and tapped it in to draw prolonged groans and small jeers from the bleachers. Challenged with yet another test to their composure, coach Juniper regrouped his team at the half, encouraging them to continue probing and pushing. “I told [the team] to keep playing … don’t freak out, don’t play frustrated, don’t get all frantic … just keep doing the things that you’ve been doing well,” said Juniper. The ‘Eaters would go on to heed his words, answering the bell with an explosive second half that saw to two quick conversations that came within a span of minutes. Emerging with a fiery energy that was kicked off by a shot on into the star-studded concert. To kick the night off, UCI Athletics rolled out the Spirit Squad in full force: the dolled-up dance and cheer teams sporting sprightly spirit, the Anteater Band blaring brass and booming percussion and, of course, Peter the Anteater strutting around the court and working the crowd. But despite resident broadcast announcer Robert Espero’s mic-savvy calls to action and free T-shirt-chucking, the crowd of ‘Eaters that night was less than impressed with UCI Athletics’ Midnight Madness. Even the cheer team’s stunningly aerodynamic routines seemed ill-matched to the event, which floundered somewhere between a pep rally, a high school dance and an inauguration. Most stayed seated, rising only to admire themselves twerking with Peter on the SEE SHOCK , PAGE 8 Prop 53 -REVENUE BONDS. STATEWIDE VOTER APPROVAL. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. YES: State revenue bonds totaling more than $2 billion for a project that is funded, owned, or managed by the state would require statewide voter approval.

YES: An existing charge SEE PROPS , PAGE 4 imposed on most private hospitals that is scheduled to end on January 1, 2018 under current law would be extended permanently. It would be harder for the legislature to make changes to it. Revenue raised would be used to create state savings, increase payments for hospital services to low-income Californians and provide grants to public hospitals. Childrens Hospital Los Angeles support the proposition. NO: An existing charge imposed on most private hospitals would end on January 1, 2018 unless additional action by the legislature extended it. NEWS By Marvin Luu Staff Writer With a four-game home stretch that got off on the wrong foot last weekend, head coach Scott Juniper called on his team to redeem their backbreaking loss to CSUN (9-4-5, 4-1-1). “We should have won the game … which would have made us feel good about playing at home, [so] we got to make it right,” said Juniper following the loss to the Matadors. “Our fans come out to watch us play, and they want to see us do a little better … so we got to make that right.” The UC Irvine women’s soccer team (12-5-1, 4-1-1) would respond accordingly, picking up two crucial victories last Friday and Sunday over Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara to draw six points on the week. With just two games left in Big West play, UCI has now ascended and met CSUN atop the conference with 13 points apiece. SPORTS LIANG FANG | Photo Intern WEATHERING THE STORM UCI swept the week's competition. Cal Poly When the Mustangs (6-10-2, 1-5-1) launched a shot that ruptured the ‘Eaters’ net in the 31st minute, a collective frame from freshman midfielder Jessica Miclat, UCI persistently hounded the Mustangs offensively, driving the ball up the field in synchronization with the steady rallying cries of coach Juniper. UCI’s aggressiveness would be rewarded when the team drew a hard foul and yellow card on the 52nd minute to earn a corner kick. “We made a couple of adjustments about the way we were going to play, and I think it showed during the first 20 minutes [of the second half],” said Juniper. “We started to get really aggressive when we had the ball, [and] some players realized how good they are tonight.” On the set piece sent in by redshirt defender Reema Bzeih, Galbraith brought a thunderous roar from the crowd as she rose up to meet the ball and crushed a header over the outreached hands of Cal Poly freshman keeper Sophia Brown to knot the game up. The crowd did not have to sit for long as the ‘Eaters hit an offensive stride and would return just three minutes later to take the lead. On a quick turnaround following a mistimed Cal Poly corner kick, Bzeih began a break up the right side and again, timed a flawless cross SEE W SOCCER , PAGE 3
