Matadors Fall to Loyola Marymount, UC Irvine at Triton Invite
Erica Bonetti led the Matadors, scoring three goals at the UC San Diego Triton Invitational. CSUN fell to the fifth-ranked Loyola Marymount Lions 8-5 in game one and suffered a 4-2 loss against No. 12 UC Irvine in the Matadors second match.

LMU opened the game with the first four goals as Sarah Hamilton scored 2:50 into the first period. Nicole Hughes scored her first collegiate goal under a minute later for the quick 2-0 lead. Christine Robinson then scored back-to-back goals, one with just 13 seconds remaining in the first period and the other 37 seconds into the second frame.

After Cal State Northridge cut the lead to 4-1 with the only other tally of the second frame, a pair of goals by Robinson and another by Stacia Peterson pushed the lead to 7-1.

The Matadors trailed 3-8 going into the fourth period and managed to hold off the Lions in the fourth quarter while scoring two more goals.

For the Matadors, Bonetti and Allison Brookes tallied two goals in the match while Jennifer Macdonnell added one. Robinson led the Lions scoring four goals in the match.

In Northridge’s second game of the Invitational, Lynzy Klein scored first for the Matadors at the 3:48 mark of the first period. The Anteaters would tie the game 1-1 with 1:20 left in the first.

The Anteaters scored two more goals in the second period to take a 3-1 lead. In the third quarter, the Anteaters would score again at the 4:35 mark to widen the gap. A goal by Bonetti with 13 seconds remaining in the period would mark the last Matador point for the day. UCI scored in the fourth quarter to defeat the Matadors 5-2.

The Matadors will compete again tomorrow at the UCSD Triton Invitation in San Diego, Calif.
