Release: Tuesday 03/01/2013 
LA JOLLA, Calif. - The No. 17 UC San Diego women's water polo team earned a thrilling 11-10 upset victory over Western Water Polo Association foe No. 13 Loyola Marymount Friday evening at Canyonview Pool.

UCSD freshman defender Alexis Wieseler scored a game-high seven goals, while goalie Courtney Miller finished with 11 saves as the Tritons improved to 6-7 overall and remained perfect in WWPA play at 3-0.

The Lions now sit at 9-6 on the season and 1-1 in the conference.

LMU held a lead through the entire first half. UCSD first went ahead two minutes into the third quarter with a goal by Wieseler, her fifth of the game. The Tritons came out of the quarter with a one goal lead at 8-7 after Melissa Bartow scored her first goal of the game from two meters.

In the fourth, neither team scored until 6:27 as LMU's Danielle Johnson netted her first goal of the game to tie it up at eight. UCSD had bad luck early on, earning a streak of offensive calls in the front court. However, the Tritons bounced back, drawing back-to-back exclusions and scoring the go-ahead goal with 3:44 remaining.

Wieseler scored two more goals to give the Tritons some breathing room at 11-9 with 1:57 to go in regulation.

The Lions scored to get back within a goal. With five seconds remaining, Wieseler was ejected from two-meters. Laura Lopez made a lob attempt with just a second left, but Miller was there to make the stop and preserve the Triton victory.

Ivana Castro and Alexandra Honny each scored three goals for LMU.

UCSD returns to Canyonview Pool on Sunday, March 3 to host No. 7 UC Irvine at noon.
