DAVIS, Calif. – After notching its second comeback victory of the trip Monday, the Harvard women's water polo team was dispatched by host UC Davis, 13-5, for its second two-game split in as many days in California.
In its first game of the day, the Crimson (10-6, 1-0 CWPA) trailed Fresno Pacific, 7-3, with about six minutes to play in the third period before making adjustments on the defensive end and limiting the Sunbirds to just two more goals in the game. Meanwhile, Harvard posted eight of its own scores for an 11-9 win.
Five different players found the back of the net for the Crimson against Fresno Pacific, led by sophomore Elise Molnar's three goals. Molnar also had four of Harvard's 10 steals in the game.
Later in the afternoon, the Crimson faced No. 15 UC Davis and struggled to get going on offense, trailing 5-1 after the first frame and 9-2 at halftime.
The Crimson will rest Tuesday before resuming its California road trip with a game Wednesday at San Jose State.
