Monterey Bay, Calif.—The Colorado State women’s water polo team faced tough competition Friday against Cal State Monterey Bay. The defense had a tough time showing up in the first half which ultimately led to the Rams falling, 14-9.
“We definitely needed to win that game,” said Head Coach Mike Moody. “We just came out really flat and we just weren’t there.”
The Rams never got ahead of the Otters. Seniors Kallie Berry and Amber Bryan and junior Caroline Young had a rough night with two ejections. Sophomore goalie Michelle Slagle had seven saves overall.
Berry, Bryan and Young all had two goals, while junior Shelby Schaefer and sophomores Stephanie Weed and Lauren Porteus each had one.
“We were never ahead,” said Moody. “There were a lot of missed opportunities and we just need to do better.”
The Rams will look for a win when they compete Saturday against Santa Clara at 3:15 p.m. MT and against Sonoma State at 7 p.m. MT.
