SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Sophomore Cassie Schaefer scored four goals and Jessi Lafayette added two more as UC Davis defeated Princeton, 9-8, in the latter of two games during Saturday's action at the UC Santa Barbara Daktronics Gaucho Invitational women's water polo tournament.

The Aggies, who lost a 7-4 matchup with 11th-ranked Michigan earlier in the day, snaps a seven-game losing streak and improves to 7-10 for the season.
