TEMPE, ARIZ. -The No. 4 Cal women's water polo team, despite three goals by junior Breda Vosters in the fourth period, dropped a 10-7 conference match at No. 5 Arizona State. The Golden Bears fell to 15-5 overall and 2-1 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation. ASU improved to 16-2 and 2-0 in league play.
Cal fell behind 4-1 in the opening quarter and was never able to catch up. Sophomore Lauren Bridges scored with 1:13 left in the first period for the Bears' first goals. Cal was able to get within, 6-4, in the second period when they outscored the Sun Devils, 3-2, on goals by sophomore Ashley Young, freshman Tiera Schroeder and junior Remington Price.
But that was as close as the Bears would get as ASU shut out Cal, 2-0, in the third period. Vosters then provided all the scoring for Richard Corso's squad in the fourth period with three goals - at 5:37, 2:21 and 46 seconds left in the match. Junior goalie Lindsay Dorst finished with seven saves for the Bears.
