CSUN Splits on Sunday to Go 2-2 at Long Beach Tournament
Northridge lost a tough 9-8, overtime affair with fifth-ranked San Diego State on Sunday, but bounced back to rout UC Santa Cruz 18-2 to finish the Long Beach State Tournament at 2-2.

The 16th-ranked Matadors improve to 18-13 with the split with two games remaining in the season.

The Matadors had goals by senior Pam Barba and sophomore Chari Christopher in the first, but trailed 3-2 after one period and 6-2 at the half against the Aztecs. CSUN came back though in the second half by outscoring SDSU 3-0 in the third to make it 6-5. Barba, senior Kendra Klein and freshman Ashley Hays scored for the Matadors after halftime. In the fourth, junior Veronica Baeza, sophomore Erica Bonetti and freshman Lynzy Klein scored as CSUN tied up the game to force overtime, but San Diego State's Kristin Moore won the match with a goal at 1:44. Junior Megan Icanberry made 10 saves in net.

In game two, the Matadors scored the first 16 goals before the Banana Slugs netted a score. CSUN netted four in the first and fourth periods and five each in the second and third. Kendra Klein, Lynzy Klein and junior Genaye Mowrer each scored three times, Christopher and Hays had two and Baeza, Barba, Bonetti, junior Kristen Franz and freshman Lauren Sheridan scored once. Sophomore Graziella Caredda started and had four saves, while Icanberry came in relief in the second half and made three stops.

The Matadors close out their season on Saturday when they travel to the San Diego State campus for two matches. CSUN will take on Cal Baptist at 1 p.m., followed by a 5 p.m. rematch with San Diego State.
