Water Polo Goes To OT With UC Irvine

Bridget McKee scored three times, including two in the fourth, as San Jose State rallied to send the game into overtime against UC Irvine. In the end, after three scoreless overtime quarters, it was the Anteaters’ Gianni Rossi scoring the game-winner at the 1:09 mark of the fourth-overtime lifting the visitors to a 6-5 victory.


San Jose Stat falls to 12-12 overall.


“Today is the kind of day where we really miss having Tanya Torres, especially on the offensive side,” said head coach Lou Tully. “Defensively we played well, well enough to win but we just couldn’t put the ball away when we needed to. And we had our chances.”


Joining McKee in the scoring column were Juliet Moss and Adrianna Vogt, both with solo goals.


The Spartans return to action Sunday at Noon against Santa Clara at the Campus Aquatics Center.
