HAYWARD, Calif. --- Sophomore Nicole Lorrimer and freshman Jessi Lafayette each recorded their first career hat tricks to lead UC Davis to a 20-1 win over Cal St. Hayward in a women's collegiate water polo match Sunday afternoon.

The Aggies even their record at 2-2. The Pioneers fall to 2-1 on the season.

Eleven different players scored for UC Davis, including the first collegiate goals by sophomore Kristina Kordesch and Adri Killingsworth. They each had two goals, as did sophomore Alia Hansen and junior Alli Johnstone. Mary Dentice, Missy Duncan, Beth Jay, Kristin Pfaff and Shannon McGee added one score each. The offensive onslaught marks the seventh time in school history that UC Davis has scored 20 or more goals in a single contest. Overall, the Aggies pelted the Hayward cage as Pioneer goalie Kimberly Johnson recorded 15 saves.

Kelsey Whalen and Natalie Ho split chores in net for UC Davis. Whalen posted a pair of saves in the first half, while Ho stopped three shots after the break.

Tara Pratt scored the lone goal for Cal St. Hayward.

The win was the second contest of the day for the Aggies, who had lost at No. 1 Stanford earlier Sunday. UC Davis heads to La Jolla for a tournament at UC San Diego next weekend.
