LOS ANGELES - Milutin Mitrovic scored with 36 seconds remaining to break a 12-12 tie and propel the LMU men's water polo team to a 13-12 win over No. 20 Cal Baptist in Western Water Polo Association action Saturday at the Burns Aquatics Center.

The Lions (13-13, 2-3 WWPA) trailed 11-9 with six minute remaining in the match before back-to-back goals by Mitrovic knotted the score at 11-11 at the 3:54 mark. The Lancers (14-14, 0-5 WWPA) responded in the form of a Cameron Custance goal. But Mitrovic would tie the score for a final time, 12-12, with 1:47 to play and then power home the go-ahead goal at the 0:36 mark.
