Santos' Three-Goal Effort Lifts No. 3 UCLA Past No. 8 Pacific, 11-6

Nov. 5, 2006

Stockton, Calif. - Junior Marco Santos recorded three goals, one assist and one steal to lead the third-ranked UCLA men's water polo team past eighth-ranked Pacific, 11-6, at Chris Kjeldsen Pool on Sunday afternoon. Junior Justin Johnson added two goals and a game-high four steals for the visiting Bruins.

The victory over Pacific (14-13, 2-4 MPSF) handed the Bruins a 1-1 split on their two-game road trip to northern California. UCLA (11-5, 2-2 MPSF) dropped an 8-7 decision Saturday afternoon at second-ranked California.

Against Pacific, the Bruins led 3-1 after one quarter and opened up a commanding 8-3 advantage through the first half. Pacific outscored UCLA, 2-1, in the third quarter. The Bruins returned the favor in the final quarter, outscoring the Tigers, 2-1.

Santos' three-goal effort marked the third time this season in which the center had scored three or more goals in a game this season. Santos tallied four goals against UC San Diego on Oct. 15 and scored three at UC San Diego on Oct. 6.

Freshman goalkeeper Chay Lapin tallied six stops, one assist and one steal for the Bruins. David Andrus recorded four saves for Pacific.

The third-ranked Bruins continue the final leg of their six-game road trip next weekend with two MPSF conference matches. UCLA plays at Pepperdine on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 12 p.m. The following day, the Bruins travel up the coast to play at UC Santa Barbara. Game time is also 12 p.m.
