HONOLULU - Senior goalkeeper Caitlin Dement registered 14 saves to lead the No. 1 UCLA women's water polo team past No. 16 Hawaii, 8-4, in an MPSF match at Duke Kahanamoku Aquatic Complex on Saturday evening.

KK Clark and Kelly Ronimus each scored a team-leading two goals to pace the Bruins (16-1, 5-0 MPSF), who earned their 10th consecutive victory.

UCLA led 4-1 at halftime and pushed its margin to 6-1 after three quarters before surrendering three goals to Hawaii (7-11, 0-6 MPSF) in the final period.

Emily Greenwood (4:31) and Becca Dorst (3:30) put the Bruins ahead, 2-0, in the first quarter.

Ronimus scored the first of her two goals with 5:45 to play before halftime, and Gisselle Naranjo found the back of the cage with 3:50 left in the second frame, putting UCLA ahead by a 4-0 margin.

Hawaii got on the board with 1:28 left in the first half on a goal from Emily Carr.

The Bruins continued to pull away, as Ronimus scored her second goal of the match with 6:52 left in the third quarter. Natasha Schulman scored as a 6-on-5 opportunity was expiring with 1:53 left in the third period to give UCLA a 6-1 cushion.
