Lions Defeat Santa Clara in Comeback
New league, same result. The LMU women's water polo team is back into another conference championship game. The Lions came from behind to earn a 10-9 win over Santa Clara in the first semifinal of the Golden Coast Conference Championships at the Burns Aquatics Center on Friday.

In a weekend in which LMU and Pacific are playing each other in what seems like every active sport (men's tennis, women's tennis, three-game series in baseball and three-game series in softball), the Lions and Tigers are tied at 3-1 entering the weekend within the GCC standings, good for a tie at second.

First up, however, is a trip to Santa Clara. The Lions enter the final weekend of the season at 18-10 overall and will start the weekend trip at Santa Clara. The Broncos are 13-12 overall and 1-3 within the GCC.

San Diego State wrapped up the Golden Coast Conference regular season title last week to finish conference play undefeated for the second straight season. With it they shored up the No. 1 seed in the upcoming GCC Championships. For the rest of the seeding, it will come down to the final weekend of play.

California Baptist and Santa Clara are tied for fifth at 1-3 in conference. Azusa Pacific holds a half game lead over the Broncos at fourth in the GCC at 2-3.Owners of a six-game winning streak, the 14th-ranked Tigers will start their weekend home stand with California Baptist on Friday at 12 noon before hosting the Lions.


 

 

Saturday's remaining action in GCC play will see the Lancers taking on Fresno Pacific at 1 pm and then the final game will see Azusa Pacific traveling to take on Santa Clara at 6 pm.

Senior Laura Lopez enters the weekend third in the GCC with 52 goals, followed by Ivana Castro and Mackenzie Beck with 44 each, good for a tie at sixth in the GCC. Kinsley Hill leads the Lions and ranks fourth in the GCC with 35 assists. Kiana Etrata is sixth with 32.

On the defensive side, goalie Jordan White is fifth with 203 saves on the season, adding 33 steals. Hill leads the Lions with 44 steals, which is ranked fifth in the GCC.
