UCLA Falls to Stanford 3-2 at the MPSF Championships

May 1, 2004

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. - The UCLA Women's Water Polo team lost to Stanford 3-2 at the MPSF Championships. The Bruins are now 21-5 on the year and will face Long Beach State tomorrow at 5:00 PM in the MPSF Third Place Game.

After a scoreless first period, Stanford jumped ahead 2-0 with two goals in the second period. However, UCLA would answer back in the third period with goals by Kristina Kunkel and Molly Cahill. The game would be tied 2-2 going into the fourth period and after nearly six scoreless minutes a goal by Stanford with 1:01 remaining would give the Cardinal the 3-2 lead. UCLA would manage to draw a 6 on 5 with thirty seconds left and after failing to convert would get the ball back with just under six seconds remaining because of a Stanford tip. But, Kristina Kunkel's shot with three seconds left sailed high, giving Stanford the victory.
