Torres Scores Four In 12-8 Loss To Cal

Honolulu, Hawaii-----San Jose State University’s Tanya Torres was one of four players in first-day action of the 2009 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Women’s Water Polo Championship to score four goals in match.

    However, California (31-6) took a 3-0 first quarter advantage and never relinquished the lead en route to a 12-8 victory over the Spartans in opening round action on April 24.

    San Jose State (19-13) did tie the score, 4-4, after a Kathryn Hannum goal at 5:16 of the second quarter. On two more occasions in the third quarter, the Spartans were within a goal, but were not able to tie the match in the second half. Torres' second goal of the third quarter and third of the match pulled San Jose State into its last one-goal deficit, 7-6, at 5:00.

    The power play was San Jose State’s ally in the first three quarters. The Spartans converted on their first four opportunities, but went scoreless in their last three chances, all in the final quarter.

    Besides Torres and Hannum scoring for San Jose State, Adriana Vogt found the goal mouth three times. Neither Juliet Moss nor Dani Curran, the team’s top two scorers, tallied a goal against Cal. Only one other time this season were Moss and Curran held scoreless in the same match.

    Camille Hewko led the Golden Bears in scoring with three.

    Cal goalkeeper Stephanie Peckham stopped 12 Spartan shots. San Jose State goalkeeper Meagan Minson made nine saves.

    San Jose State moves on to play Arizona State, Saturday, April 25, in a consolation round match starting at 3:00 p.m. (HST)/6:00 p.m. (PDT) at the Duke Kahanumoku Aquatic Complex.
