In Sunday’s Western Water Polo Association championship game, the UC Davis men ran into the one thing teams want to avoid in the postseason: a hot goalie.

The host Aggies were looking for their first conference title in 16 years — and the automatic berth in the National Collegiate Championship that comes with it — but UC San Diego and goalie Cameron Ravanbach had other ideas.

In their 6-4 win over No. 11 UCD, the 10th-ranked Tritons held the locals to 4-of-32 shooting with the help of tournament MVP Ravanbach’s 13 saves.

For the Aggies, senior Bernie Rogers, sophomore Austin Beckwith, freshman Zoltan Lozar and junior Trevor Allen, a Davis High graduate, each scored one goal.

After Allen drew first blood in the game, converting a Rogers assist to complete a power play just three minutes in, UCSD went on a 5-1 scoring run to enter the final period up 6-2.

The Aggies got goals from Beckwith and Rogers in the fourth quarter, cutting the lead to 6-4, but Ravanbach made five key saves in the period as the Tritons held on.

Rogers and Chris Richardson earned all-tournament first-team distinction for UCD, while Aggie goalie Philip Bates, who had eight saves on Sunday, garnered a second-team nod.
