SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — The No. 16 University of California San Diego women’s water polo team dropped two games against top-10 opponents on Sunday at the UC Santa Barbara Winter Invitational.

The Tritons (1-3) fell to No. 8 Michigan, 11-4, to begin the day before coming up short against No. 3 UCLA, 9-3, in the final game of this weekend’s action.

In game one against Michigan, freshman Grace Pevehouse scored two first-quarter goals while senior Kayla Fedler and junior Krista Schneider also scored. Schneider added two steals, freshman Ciara Franke recorded three steals and sophomore goalkeeper Reilly Gallagher finished with six saves.

Trailing by two early on, Fedler got the Tritons on the scoreboard with 3:51 left in the first, and Pevehouse tied it less than two minutes later. Pevehouse then scored her second goal of the period to put UC San Diego in front, 3-2, with 1:53 remaining in the first quarter.

Michigan put together a 5-0 run into the second quarter until Schneider’s goal with three seconds left in the half cut the Tritons’ halftime deficit to 7-4.

Against UCLA, UC San Diego led after the first quarter behind two goals by Pevehouse and one by Fedler.

Pevehouse’s score with 4:09 left in the first gave the Tritons a 1-0 lead and an early spark. They gained even more momentum when Pevehouse tallied her second goal of the period to give UC San Diego a 2-1 lead after the first quarter.

Fedler’s goal early in the second half pulled the Tritons within 5-3 with seven minutes remaining in the third quarter, but it would be UCSD’s final score of the day.

Fedler and sophomore Jessee Ransone recorded two steals apiece, while Gallagher tallied three saves and two steals.

The Tritons will be back in action on Feb. 3 when UC San Diego competes in the Arizona State Tournament in Tempe, Ariz., beginning with a doubleheader against Princeton and Hawai’i.
