SANTA CLARA — Top-seeded and eighth-ranked Loyola Marymount broke away from a close 5-4 edge late in the third quarter to seal a 9-6 win over second-seeded and 12th-ranked UC Davis in the title game of the Western Water Polo Association mens championship tournament Sunday at Santa Claras Sullivan Aquatics Center.

\n

The Aggies, who were chosen to finish fourth in the conference during the preseason, end the season with an 18-10 record. The Lions improve to 18-8 in capturing their eighth WWPA title in the past decade. LMU earns the conferences automatic qualifier to the National Collegiate Championship in December.

\n

Senior Cory Lyle and junior Walter Eggert each tallied two goals for UCD. Aaron Salit and Matt Richardson added one apiece, while junior goalkeeper Kevin Peat was credited with eight saves.

\n

For LMU, senior Tibor Forai posted the games only hat trick, while six other Lions scored one goal each. LMU never trailed in the contest, taking a 3-1 lead behind two Forai goals in the first period, then held a 4-2 lead late in the second quarter. Eggert netted his second goal on a 6-on-5 chance in the final minute before the break, allowing UCD to pull within a single goal at halftime.

\n

Lion sophomore Jon Colton hit an extra-man goal early in the third period to restore his teams lead to two, then LMU successfully defended on two more 6-on-5 opportunities to maintain that lead. Aggie center Salit halved the deficit when his goal at the 1:14 mark made it 5-4, but Edgaras Asajavicius scored on the next possession to send the Lions back up by two. Forai completed his hat trick early in the fourth, and LMU maintained its cushion the rest of the way.

\n

Sundays contest marked the second time UCD has reached the WWPA championship game in the past four years. Previously, the Aggies lost in a 7-6 upset to LMU in the 2007 tournament.

\n

UCD graduates five seniors this season: Lyle, Richardson, utility Carlos Martinez, utility Mattie Stone and goalkeeper Erik Quinn. Martinez earned first-team All-WWPA honors in each of his final two seasons.
