“This was a great kick off for us in our pursuit of a conference championship,” said UCSD head coach Brad Kreutzkamp. “The team played sharp and I was especially pleased with our defensive effort, led by (Courtney) Miller in the cage.”
Defensively, the Tritons posted strong numbers across the board.
In the field, the Tritons made it difficult for the Coyotes to get a shot off, as they totaled 16 steals. Freshman Laurel Kistler came away with five individually.
On the offensive front, the Tritons made a statement early, scoring five goals in the first quarter. Melissa Bartow tallied two in the opening minute of play, as the two-meter player finished with a team-high five goals.
UCSD added another three goals to open the second, before CSUSB’s single goal of the game came at the 2:36 mark off a penalty shot made by senior Misty Vu.
The Tritons tallied another five unanswered goals through the second half to earn the 14-1 victory.
UCSD now holds a 23-13 overall record and will face Colorado State on Saturday, April 27 at 12:30 p.m. in semifinal play.
