Cal Ends Run At National Indoors

FLUSHING MEADOWS, N.Y. – An all-Cal final on Sunday wasn't to be as two Golden Bear duos lost in the consolation doubles semifinals on Saturday at the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships, ending the Bears' campaign at the USTA Billie Jean King Tennis Center.

Third-ranked and third-seeded seniors Maegan Manasse and Denise Starr fell to Baylor's Elizabeth Profit and Blair Shankle, 6-4, 6-3, in one semifinal. Junior Karla Popovic and sophomore Olivia Hauger lost to Michigan's Kate Fahey and Alex Najarian, 6-2, 6-4, in the other.

"We had a good weekend here," Cal head coach Amanda Augustus said. "In singles, we played close matches against tomorrow's two finalists (Ohio State's Francesca Di Lorenzo and North Carolina's Hayley Carter), so I think we're right on track. We had some good doubles matches, though there are certain things we'll take home and work on."

Cal Defeats Maine, Advances to AE Semifinals

STOCKTON, Calif. – California field hockey punched its ticket to the America East Championship semifinals with a 3-2 come-from-behind win to upset Maine in the tournament quarterfinals Friday afternoon.

Down twice to the Black Bears, the Golden Bears found a way to tie the game up both times before America East All-Rookie squad member Katrina Carter sent in the go-ahead goal in the waning minutes of the game. She finished the afternoon with a single-game best three points on her game-winning goal and an earlier assist.

The Bears earn a rematch with West Division foe Stanford, who they'll face Saturday at noon.

Bears Pull Away For Win Over UC Irvine

IRVINE, Calif. – A low-scoring affair at halftime turned in favor of the Cal men's water polo team in the third period as the No. 3-ranked Bears built a lead and maintained it to the finish to beat No. 19 UC Irvine 9-6 in the first of two road matches this weekend

Offense proved hard to come by for both Cal (16-3) and UC Irvine (9-11) in the first half. Goals by Pedro Stellet and Farrel South left the Bears tied with the Anteaters 2-2 at the midway point.

That low-scoring tendency changed in the third period. A goal by Johnny Hooper just over a minute into the period put the Bears in front and about two minutes later Vassilis Tzavaras pushed that advantage to two with a goal of his own.

UC Irvine countered with a goal to make it 4-3 but Cal closed the period strong, scoring four of the final five goals to take an 8-4 lead. Back to back goals by freshman left-hander Safak Simsek and goals by Hooper and Luca Cupido established control in the Bears' corner heading into the final period.
