SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The LMU men’s water polo five-game week at the Rodeo Invitational hosted by Santa Clara was not for the faint of heart. The week included a pair of overtime hearbreakers, three one-goal games and four top-20 opponents.
The Lions last game of the weekend was the one exception, as the Lions earned a 20-8 win over Wagner. The Lions suffered a 12-11 overtime setback to 10th-ranked Brown to start the final day.
The Lions opened the tournament with a 14-13 win over No. 10 Harvard on Friday. Saturday included a 13-12 setback to No, 18 St. Francis and a Bucknell using overtime 6-on-5 opportunities for a 11-9 win.

Eric Reitmeir earned his 13 points with 10 goals and three assists. Jon Beck had nine goals and four assists while Cory McGee had five goals and eight assists.
