Ormsby's Late Winner Gets UCLA Past Trojans, 6-5

Nov. 17, 2001

LOS ANGELES, Calif - Freshman driver Brett Ormsby (El Cajon/Valhalla) scored three goals, including the game-winner late in the fourth quarter, to lead the second-ranked UCLA men's water polo team to a 6-5 victory over No. 4 USC Saturday afternoon at McDonald's Swim Stadium.

The match was the regular-season finale for both sides as UCLA improved to 13-3 overall (including three wins over USC this season) while the Trojans fell to 11-6.

The Bruins broke out of the gate quickly and took a 3-0 lead by the end of the first quarter. Junior two-meter Dan Yeilding (San Clemente) scored twice and Ted Peck (Fr., Irvine/University) added another tally in the opening period.

Both teams traded goals in the second term. Ormsby's first two of the match were interspersed with replies from USC's Daniel Lontay, Ivan Babic, and Jeff Larson that cut UCLA's halftime lead to 5-3.

The Trojans started the second half tough on the Bruins. Brett Reynolds cut the margin to one, then Lontay scored on a power play to draw USC level with 1:17 left in the third quarter.

UCLA then drew a ejection on the Trojans with three minutes left in the final period and Ormsby cashed in on the six-on-five opportunity, scoring the deciding goal with 2:42 left.

Brandon Brooks made eight saves for UCLA, while USC goalkeeper Bozidar Damjanovic registered six stops.

Both teams travel to Berkeley next weekend for the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation CHampionships at Spieker Aquatic Center. UCLA meets UC Santa Barbara in a quarterfinal match Friday at 2 p.m. A win could set up another showdown with USC in the semifinals next Saturday.
