#7 CSUN Ties School Record in 22-8 Win Over Cal Lutheran

Northridge, Ca. – Cal State Northridge tied a school record for goals in a game with a 22-8 victory over Cal Lutheran University in a non-league women's water polo game on Thursday night at Matador Pool.

Nearly two years ago, the Matadors set the school record with a 22-7 victory over La Verne.

With 2:19 remaining in the game, CSUN held a 20-7 lead. Then with 1:41 on the clock, McKenzie Pollei scored the team's 21st goal. With one second to play, Taitum Herrington powered a shot by the CLU goalie to give the Matadors a school tying 22 goals.

Herrington scored two goals. She was one of 13 Matador players to score at least one goal. Kelcy Barott scored a season-high four goals to lead the CSUN scoring attack. Lindsy Duncan and Katie Kammer each scored a trio of goals.

The game was never in doubt. CSUN scored seven straight goals in the first period before Cal Lutheran reached the scoreboard.

The victory was the ninth straight for the Matadors who are now 17-5 this season.

Earlier in the day, Cal State Northridge captured a hard-earned 11-9 victory over Harvard University.

With the score tied 8-8 with 6:51 remaining in the fourth period, Lindsy Duncan scored her second goal of the contest at 6:33 to give CSUN a one goal lead they would never surrender. Jenny Jamison and Marisa Young each added a goal in the final minutes to give the Matadors an 11-8 lead.

In addition to Duncan's two goals, Kelcie Ferreira, Jamison and Young also recorded two goals apiece to give the seventh-ranked Matadors a 16-5 season record.

Kiernan Davis collected eight saves for CSUN.
