Pioneers Fall to #6 Hawaii

Submitted By Scott Chisholm

Cal State East Bay womenÕs water polo fell 20-2 at Pioneer Pool to NCAA Division I and No. 6 nationally ranked University of Hawaii on January 31st. Danielle Lewis and Chloe Barr scored four goals apiece to lead the visiting Rainbow Wahines.

It was a steady dose of counter attacks and player-advantage opportunities that put the game out of reach early on. Hawaii (2-0) scored six goals in the opening period, three courtesy of counters and as a team, went 3-for-3 on its man-up chances.

Sara HudynÕs late first quarter goal ended a streak of six unanswered Hawaii scores to open the game. She would later score again in the third quarter after teammate Olivia Mackell earned a 5-meter penalty shot.

ÒHawaii is a very well disciplined team. I was happy with our movement which resulted in us earning a lot of ejections,Ó said East Bay Head Coach Lisa Cooper. ÒWe just could not find the back of the net on our 6-on-5Õs.Ó

Cal State East Bay earned a total of 13 exclusions including a pair of penalty shots. The Pioneers went 0-for-11 on their player-up opportunities and 1-for-2 on penalty shots.

Five different Hawaii players scored multiple goals including Lewis and Barr with four each, Zoe Respondek netted three, and Mandy West and Emily Carr with a pair each. Amy Carlson earned the win in goal making six first half saves. Sarah Logan was a halftime substitution and recorded four stops.

East Bay goalkeeper Marrina Nation made five saves highlighted by a three-save second quarter in holding Hawaii to only three scores in the frame. Gabriel Isacson entered in the final quarter and made two stops.
