SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – The No. 5 Arizona State University water polo team fell to No. 6 UC Irvine, 9-6, in the final game of the season opening UCSB Winter Invite in Santa Barbara, Calif., on Sunday.

ASU (3-2) struggled offensively in the contest with its lowest scoring tally of the weekend as the Anteaters outscored the Sun Devils 6-3 in the second half to pull away after a tight first half that saw UCI enter the break with just a 3-2 lead.

Daisy Carter had two goals for the Sun Devils, the only player to find the back of the net on multiple occasions. Alkistis Benekou, Petra Pardi, Izabella Chiappini and Kate Enoka each added goals.

The goalkeeping combination of E.B. Keeve and Ianeta Hutchinson combined for seven saves but the defense struggled to contain UCI’s Hannah Croghan, who had four goals in the game.

The loss marked the first time in over a year that the Sun Devils have lost while allowing fewer than 10 goals.

ASU returns to action in two weekends at the UC San Diego Tournament in San Diego, Calif.
