BERKELEY – The No. 4 Cal women’s water polo team got two goals apiece from Dora Antal, Anna Illes and Michelle Caron but the Bears fell to No. 2 UCLA 11-8 on Thursday at the Spieker Aquatics Complex.

The Bears (16-5, 2-2 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation) got off to a 3-1 lead after back-to-back goals by Antal, including one on a penalty shot. But the Bruins (19-2, 2-0) scored the next four goals to establish a 5-3 advantage with 5:27 remaining in the first half. The teams then traded goals to give UCLA a 6-4 halftime advantage.

After Illes scored the first goal of the third period to make it 6-5, the Bruins put together another four-goal string to make it 10-5 early in the fourth period. Cal made a furious run during the second half of the fourth quarter, with a goal by Roser Tarrago and two in a row by Caron to cut the deficit to 10-8 with 2:18 to play.

Kelly McKee also scored for the Bears. Cal goalie Madeline Trabucco made seven saves.

The Bears will play their final home game of the season Saturday against Cal State Northridge. Ashley Young, Cal’s lone senior, will be honored before the match.
