UC San Diego Splits on First Day of Triton Invitational


LA JOLLA, Calif. - On the first day of its own Triton Invitational, the 15th-ranked University of California San Diego women's water polo team split a pair of matches, defeating No. 12 Indiana 9-8 in overtime before falling to No. 4 UCLA, 10-2.

With 29 seconds left in the first overtime period against IU, freshman Taylor Onstott (Carlsbad/Carlsbad HS) scored her third goal of the contest to lift the Tritons to victory.

The Hoosiers forced extra time by tying the game at 8-8 with just one second remaining in regulation.

Senior Kayla Fedler also recorded a hat trick for UCSD. Freshman Ciara Franke (San Diego/La Jolla HS) scored twice and classmate Grace Pevehouse also found the back of the cage.

Freshman Bennett Bugelli had three saves and sophomore Reilly Gallagher had two for the Tritons.

Indiana got three goals from Jennifer Beadle and Jessica Gaudreault totaled nine saves.

With the win, the Tritons avenged an 8-6 loss against the Hoosiers back on Jan. 20 at UC Santa Barbara's Winter Invitational.

The victory was the 181st for UCSD head coach Brad Kreutzkamp, moving him into second place on the school's all-time wins list for women's water polo. Now in his ninth season leading the Tritons, Kreutzkamp is 181-134 (.575). He surpassed Larry Sanders, who compiled a 180-159 (.531) mark between 2000 and 2009.

In the Tritons' second match of the day, UCLA rolled to a 7-0 halftime lead by netting four goals in the first quarter and another three in the second.

UCSD scored single goals in the third and fourth quarters as Franke and Onstott had strikes.

UC San Diego plays 10th-ranked UC Davis on Sunday at 9:50 a.m. For complete results, visit the tournament page.
