BERKELEY – For the third time in the four weeks since the start of the 2014 season, Cal freshman Dora Antal has been named the MPSF/KAP 7 Women’s Water Polo Newcomer of the Week.
Antal excelled at the Stanford Invitational last weekend, scoring 15 goals as the No. 4 Bears won three of four matches to take third place in the field. She scored six goals in a game for the second time this season during a 9-6 victory over No. 16 Michigan. Antal became just the second player in Cal history to score at least six goals in a game more than once. She added five goals in a 12-6 win over No. 5 UC Irvine in the Third Place Game.
With 40 goals this season, Antal is already tied for seventh on Cal’s all-time freshman single-season scoring list. She leads the MPSF with 4.00 goals per game.
The Bears are off this week before returning to Spieker Aquatics Complext on Feb. 15 to host No. 12 Long Beach State at 1 p.m. and Santa Clara at 5 p.m.
