LOS ANGELES -- -- The ninth-ranked LMU women's water polo team fell to No. 2 UCLA, 14-6, on Saturday afternoon at the Burns Aquatics Center. They head into a small break and Head Coach Kyle Witt feels they had some things they can build on.
"We have been working hard to fix some things and despite the score, I thought we showed some improvement," said Witt. "They have a couple days off and we should come back rested and excited for what we have to build from."
Goalie Claire Wright made 10 saves and Ivana Castro added three goals for the Lions. UCLA went 3-for-4 on the 6-on-5 while the Lions went 1-for-6. Rachel Fattal and Victoria Kent each had three goals for UCLA.
The Lions will head to Fresno on March 8 to play first Golden Coast Conference game on Friday at 9 am against Fresno Pacific. The Lions will also play Stanford at 1 pm. They will then return home to face Hawaii at 12 noon on Sunday, March 9.
