No. 4 UCLA Women's Water Polo Defeats No. 7 Loyola Marymount, 8-4

April 8, 2010

LOS ANGELES - Juniors Grace Reynolds and Priscilla Orozco led the fourth-ranked UCLA women's water polo team past No. 7 Loyola Marymount, 8-4, in a non-conference match at Burns Recreation and Aquatics Center on the LMU campus on Thursday afternoon.

The Bruins' victory snapped the Lions' program record 14-match winning streak as LMU fell to 19-3 overall while UCLA improved to 16-6.

The Bruins opened up the match with a 3-0 lead and led 3-1 at halftime. Orozco got UCLA on the board first with an exclusion goal at the 5:57 mark of the first quarter. Freshman Heather Van Hiel ended the scoring in the first period with a goal with 4:23 left in the first. Both defenses responded the rest of the quarter with Bruin goalie Caitlin Dement picking up two saves while LMU goalkeeper Kristine Cato recorded three stops in the cage.

There was no scoring until the 1:50 mark of the second period when UCLA sophomore Hannah Sebenaler found the back of the net to put the Bruins up 3-0. Loyola Marymount scored its only goal of the first half on the next possession when Erin Manke scored her only goal for the Lions, making it 3-1 UCLA.

The Bruins exploded for a four-goal third quarter to break open the game. The Bruins jumped out to a commanding 6-1 lead. Reynolds scored on the opening poseession (7:41) of the third quarter to make it 4-1. Junior Kelsey McGinley then made it 5-1 UCLA with a goal with 3:14 left in the third. Freshman Emily Greenwood scored on a 6-on-5 opportunity to increase the lead to 6-1 (1:28). Then LMU would capitalize on a 6-on-5 opportunity with an exclusion goal by Diana Romero with 26 seconds left. The Bruins then called timeout to set up a play, which worked to perfection as UCLA ended the period up 7-2 after Orozco scored her second goal of the day with 13 seconds left in the third period.

LMU scored the first two goals of the fourth quarter. Mary Ann Campos scored at the 5:29 mark and Daisy Carrillo scored with 4:25 remining to cut the lead to three, 7-4. But Reynolds scored her second goal of the game with 3:02 to play to stop the Lions late run.

UCLA improved to 15-0 all-time against Loyola Marymount.

Dement registered eight saves in the cage for UCLA. Cato finished with 10 stops for LMU. The Bruins won three of the four sprints (Van Hiel won the three sprints for UCLA).

The Bruins return to action at 1:00 p.m. on April 10 for an MPSF match at No. 14 San Diego State.
