UCD water polo sweeps Harvard, Fresno Pacific

By
March 14, 2011 |

If the members of the UC Davis women’s team were looking for an extra nudge as they go into finals week, Monday’s performance might be just what they needed.

The 15th-ranked Aggies started off a sweep at Schaal Aquatics Center by showing Harvard who was the more clever squad — at least in the water — before beating Fresno Pacific to extend their winning streak to nine games.

Seniors Michelle Hook, junior Lyndsay Sutterley, sophomore Carmen Eggert and freshman Katie Jackson each totaled three goals on the day as UCD (12-5)  defeated the Crimson, 13-5, then topped the Sunbirds, 13-2.

Hook, Eggert and sophomore Jessica Dunn each scored two goals in the early-afternoon win over Harvard, while Jackson, Sutterley and junior Alicia Began all netted two goals against Fresno Pacific. In all, 15 different Aggies scored goals in one of the two games.

UCD crafted a 6-1 lead through the first nine minutes of play against the Crimson, behind two goals from Hook. Senior Heidi Kucera contributed heavily on defense in that game, forcing two steals and blocking back-to-back shots in just 11 minutes of tank time.

Eggert’s goal with 1:15 in the second was perhaps the most spectacular of the day. After earning inside water at two meters, she elevated high out of the water to redirect a pass from Davis High graduate Ariel Feeney into the cage in a water polo version of an alley-oop.

The Aggies scored seven unanswered goals against FPU, not even allowing a Sunbird shot until Brittney Guerrero fired late in the first quarter. Eggert scored on a 6-on-5 chance to open the game, then assisted Hook at the 5:36 mark to kickstart the scoring run. Began landed both of her goals in the second period to extend the Aggies’ advantage to 8-1 at the half.

UCD takes a break for the  final examinations, then returns to action at California on Sunday. The Aggies will face the host Golden Bears as well as George Washington in neutral-site action.
