The California State University, Monterey Bay women’s water polo team was decisively defeated by visiting Azusa Pacific University 6-17 in a non-conference match Feb. 4 in their second home game.

For the entire game, the momentum was solely controlled by the Cougars as they started the first quarter defensively, shutting out the Otters along with five consecutive goals, all scored by Madeline Schultz (#13). 

It wasn’t until the second quarter that the Otters scored their first goal by Kaya Eaton (#20). However, by the end of the quarter, the Cougars were up 8-1, going into the half.

The second half was similar as Azusa Pacific continued to outshoot and outscore the Otters. Monterey Bay only managed to score five more goals, while the Cougars scored nine in what was a lopsided game, ultimately in favor of Azusa Pacific. 

The Otters fell to 2-4 overall, while the Cougars improved to 3-5.

Their next game will be on Feb. 11 against the University of the Pacific. For more information on upcoming games, visit otterathletics.com.
