No. 8 UC Davis gets the win over No. 20 CSUN

April 14, 2018

NORTHRIDGE, Calif. — Senior center Greta Kohlmoos scored a hat trick for the third time in as many weekends, while senior utility Paige Virgil followed close behind with two goals of her own, to help the No. 8 Aggies to an 11-6 conference victory over No. 20 CSUN at the Matador Pool on Saturday afternoon.

The Aggies bump their overall record to 18-8, and their Big West Conference record to 3-1 for the 2018 season. 

In the first quarter of the game, CSUN’s Lindsey Garcia scored the first goal of the game; however, UC Davis pushed through to bring their team score to four, thanks to the two goals scored by Virgil, and the other two goals coming from sophomore utility Chloe Robinson and Kohlmoos.

With the three-point lead going into the second quarter, the Matadors narrowed the gap by scoring a goal of their own, but it was short-lived as senior utility Carla Tocchini found an opportunity to put in a goal of her own to bring the Aggie lead back to three.

Kohlmoos opened up the third quarter of the game with her second goal, bringing UC Davis’s total score to six, but CSUN was able to put a goal just twenty seconds later to bring their score to three. Throughout the remainder of the third quarter, the scoring went back and forth between the two teams, and the next two Aggie goals came from junior attacker Marcela Portales, and then from junior utility Emily Byrne.

Entering into the final quarter with a 8-5 UC Davis lead, Kohlmoos earned her hat trick with her third goal of the game, which was scored halfway through, and then junior utility Annie Kutt and sophomore attacker Ariana Momen followed their teammate directly after with goals of their own. At the buzzer, CSUN’s Madeleine Sanchez was able to put in a goal for her team; however, it was the Aggies that came away with the victory at a final 11-8 score.

The UC Davis women’s water polo team quickly returns to action tomorrow afternoon to play against No. 17 UC Santa Barbara for their second conference matchup of the weeekend.
