The No. 2 UCLA men's water polo team defeated 21st-ranked Pomona-Pitzer, 16-5, in its season-opening match on Saturday morning at Spieker Aquatics Center in the first game of the two-day UCLA Invitational.

Bret Lathrope, Paul Reynolds, Christopher Meinhold, Chris Robertson, Chris Fahlsing, Mario Cardenas, Brendan Zwaneveld and Daniel Lenhart all netted one goal for the Bruins.

UCLA led 8-0 after the first period and scored the game's first nine goals, before Pomona-Pitzer (0-1), got in the scoring column with a power play goal by Jarrod Gaut with 4:55 left in the second period. Sophomore Stephen White started in goal for the Bruins and registered five saves in the opening period.

The Bruins led 11-1 at halftime and built their lead to 13-1 on a 6-on-5 opportunity with a goal from Fuentes.

After scoring 11 goals on the Sagehens' starting goalkeeper Austin Strong in the first half, Pomona-Pitzer made a change in the cage and Tyler Hill came in to stabilize the scoring outburst. He made six saves in the final two periods, which the Bruins held a 5-4 scoring advantage in.
