Men's Water Polo - Fri, Oct. 6, 2017

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - In a tightly contested clash of two top-10 teams, the No. 8 UC Santa Barbara men's water polo team used two late fourth quarter goals and a strong defensive effort to hold off No. 9 Pepperdine by a score of 9-8 on Thursday night at Campus Pool.

Pepperdine started off strong, and led 2-1 for most of the first quarter. After over three minutes of scoreless play, Shane Hauschild fired a cross-pool pass to Cole Brosnan on a counterattack goal that helped the Gauchos tie the game 2-2. The teams stayed locked up at two, until Boris Jovanovic found the back of the net with two seconds remaining in the quarter to give the Gauchos the lead entering the second quarter.
