No. 5 Bruins Beat No. 7 Tigers 11-7

Nov. 16, 2002

Stockton, Calif. - The Pacific Tigers men's water polo team fell 11-7 to #5 UCLA on Saturday, Nov. 16th. The loss drops Pacific to 10-12 on the season and 3-5 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, while the Bruins improved to 12-7 overall and 4-4 in the MPSF.

After Pacific broke on top 1-0 on the first possession of the game, UCLA threated to blow the game open as the Bruins scored five of the next six goals to take a 5-2 lead with two minutes remaining in the opening period.

The Tigers, however, responded with three goals of their own to tie the match at 5-5 with 6:07 remaining in the second period. Seniors Danny Johnson (Westminster, Calif.) and Kraig Jorgense (Lodi, Calif.) had two goals each in the opening period for Pacific to keep the game close, while junior Jared Pendergrass (Fresno, Calif.) tied the game at five with his 11th goal of the season.

With the match tied, UCLA took its game to the next level as the Bruins scored five consecutive goals in the next 13 minutes to take a 10-5 lead into the final period.

UCLA will close out its regular season next weekend when it faces USC in a 10:00 am non-conference match at the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center.
