SAN DIEGO, Calif. —
The UC Davis women’s water polo team came away with two game wins at the Canyonview Aquatic Center on Sunday after meeting in the pool with host UC San Diego, 12-6, and then San Diego State, 13-8, on their second and final day of action at the Triton Invitational.

This marks the first time in the 2018 season where the UC Davis women’s water polo team came away with all wins against their respective opponents for a single tournament day. The Aggies broke their even win-loss record, and are now 7-5 overall.

Starting off the morning with a game against host UC San Diego, senior center Greta Kohlmoos scored the first two goals for the Aggies, while the third goal was scored by junior utility Annie Kutt. The first three goals were all assisted by sophomore attacker Kathleen Schafle, before she responded with her own goal as the clock approached the last minute of the quarter. Altogether, the Aggies scored five goals during the first quarter to bring them to a two-point lead over the Tritons.

For three remaining quarters, the UC Davis squad either tied or outscored UC San Diego, especially in the second quarter and fourth quarter where it was only the Aggies that scored. Schafle scored the first goal halfway through the second quarter, while senior utility Carla Tocchini found an opportunity to score back-to-back goals towards the end. Kutt was the lone scorer in the pool during the fourth quarter, and the match eventually concluded at a 12-6 Aggie victory.

To recap the game against No. 18 San Diego State, Kohlmoos scored the first goal for the Aggies again, while teammate McKenna Hauss responded less than a minute later with their second goal before the Aztecs pushed through to score their first goal.

In the first and second quarter alone, the UC Davis squad held a six-goal advantage over San Diego State. Aside from Kohlmoos and Hauss, Paige Virgil scored a hat trick in the first half of the game, while Schafle scored two goals in the second quarter. Kutt, Chloe Robinson, and Sammy Preston were three additional Aggie contingents that contributed to the running team score during those two periods.

With a 3-9 lead over the Aztecs, the UC Davis women’s water polo team continued to maintain their lead over San Diego State’s team. Despite the Aztecs’ efforts in scoring four during the last quarter, the match officially ended with a 13-8 Aggie victory.

The UC Davis women’s water polo team returns to action next weekend to the Schaal Aquatics Center to host their annual Aggie Shoot-Out tournament. This year’s tournament will be a six-team, 10-game event, starting on the morning of Feb. 17.
