No. 4 UCLA Men's Water Polo Cruises Past No. 13 Pacific, 16-6

Oct. 21, 2007

LOS ANGELES - Junior Kyle Healy and sophomore Scott Davidson each scored three goals to lead the No. 4 UCLA men's water polo team past No. 13 Pacific, 16-6, Sunday afternoon at UCLA's Sunset Canyon Recreation Center.

The Bruins (15-5, 2-2 MPSF) scored early and often against the visiting Tigers (13-14, 0-4 MPSF). Davidson got UCLA on the board first, scoring his first of three goals just 47 seconds into the match. UCLA opened up a 3-0 cushion midway through the first frame on subsequent goals by junior Krsto Sbutega and Davidson.

UCLA led 4-1 heading into the second period. The Bruins received second-quarter goals from Sbutega and seniors Cameron Smith and Marco Santos to assume a 7-2 lead at halftime.

The Bruins outscored Pacific, 5-2, in the third quarter as Healy recorded his three goals in the second half - two in the final frame. Junior Russell Simpkins and sophomore Cole Consani also scored in the fourth quarter.

Junior Mike Struempf led Pacific with three goals.

UCLA senior goalkeeper Matt Kellogg recorded three saves before being relieved by sophomore Alex Lawrence, who made one save in the game's final 2:26.

Pacific senior goalkeeper Brian Domecus made seven stops in the cage - including five in the first quarter. In the fourth quarter, junior David Andrus made one stop.

The Bruins return to action against No. 1 USC on Sunday, Oct. 28, in an MPSF contest at Sunset Canyon Recreation Center. Match time between the crosstown rivals is slated for 1 p.m.
