UCSD battled back from a three-goal deficit twice in the third quarter to make it 9-8 at the start of the final stanza. However, four consecutive scores by the Anteaters but them up by five with three and a half minutes to play.
UCSD finishes the regular season at 14-9 overall. Now that the regular season is complete, the Tritons will be gearing up for the Western Water Polo Association Championships, which UCSD will host November 17-20 at Canyonview Pool.
The Tritons will likely hold the No. 2 seed for the tournament thanks to an 12-3 conference record. UCSD's only losses in WWPA play this season have come at the hands of Loyola Marymount. At 10-1 in conference play, the Lions are favorites to be the No. 1 seed.
