Matadors Take Two on Final Day of LMU Invitational
The 20th-ranked Cal State Northridge women's water polo team won a pair of games on Saturday at the Loyola Marymount Invitational, defeating #14 UC San Diego 5-4 and Claremont 6-3.

The victories improve the Matadors' record to 14-8 after going 2-1 in the tournament.

Against the Tritons, the Matadors were down 3-2 in the third period when they scored three straight to clinch the win. Sophomore Chari Christopher and senior Pam Barba scored in the third to make it 4-3 and Christopher added her second of the game with 2:57 left in the fourth to make it 5-3. Tobi Lyman scored for UCSD to make it 5-4, but the Matadors held on in the final minute for their second victory of the season over the Tritons. Barba netted another goal, while freshman Lynzy Klein also scored for CSUN. Sophomore Graziella Caredda had 11 saves in goal.

In game two, the Matadors led 2-1 after the first quarter on goals by Christopher and Klein and 4-2 at the half after two second-quarter scores by Barba. After a scoreless third, Klein and freshman Ashley Hays tallied in the fourth. Junior Megan Icanberry made six saves.

The Matadors return to action next Saturday and Sunday when they travel to Bloomington, IN for the Fluid Four Invitational. CSUN will play three ranked teams in a two-day span, taking on Loyola Marymount, Michigan and host team Indiana.
