BERKELEY, Calif. -- The No. 2 UCLA men's water polo team improved to 9-0 on the season with a 10-4 win over No. 6 UC Santa Barbara (6-1) this afternoon in the quarterfinals of the NorCal Invitational. Junior Paul Reynolds completed a hat trick to lead the Bruins.

UCLA controlled the action in the first period, scoring the only goal on a counter attack by Reynolds at the 3:53 mark.

Senior Paul Pickell opened the second period with a nice drive and finish to give the Bruins a 2-0 lead (6:49). Reynolds then converted a penalty shot to extend UCLA's lead to 3-0 with 4:05 to go in the second. After UCSB scored on a power play (3:27), the Bruins reeled off two more goals before the half. Freshman Ryder Roberts scored an exclusion goal to make it 4-1 (1:13) and Reynolds completed his hat trick with a front court goal with :23 to go to give the Bruins a 5-1 lead at the break.

Senior Aimone Barabino struck first for UCLA in the third period with a goal from two meters to make it 6-1 (7:31). After another goal by UCSB, redshirt junior Cristiano Mirarchi scored on a counter attack to put the Bruins up 7-2 with :53 left in the third period. Santa Barbara got a power play goal (:27) to head into the final period trailing 7-3.

Sophomore Danny McClintick scored from the front court to open the fourth quarter (5:59). Freshman Jack Fellner then scored back-to-back goals (power play at 3:05 and counter attack at 1:14) to push the lead to 10-3. UCSB scored a late goal on a 6-on-5 opportunity (:37) to provide the final score of 10-4.

The Bruins were 2-for-6 on power plays while UC Santa Barbara was 3-for-11. UCLA was 1-for-1 on penalty shots. UCSB didn't attempt a penalty shot.

Redshirt freshman Garrett Danner started in goal and played the entire game, registering nine saves.
