IRVINE, Calif. - No. 14 San Diego State got behind early and was unable to rally in a 13-4 loss to fifth-ranked Hawai’i at the Barbara Kalbus Invitational Friday afternoon at Anteater Aquatics Center. The defeat sends SDSU to 5-5 on the year, while the Rainbow Wahine moved to 9-1.
UH scored the first four goals of the game, including three in the first quarter, before the Aztecs were able to make a dent in their deficit. Shelby Kraft supplied SDSU’s first goal of the day, but Hawai’i answered with three additional goals to carry a 7-1 lead into halftime.
The third quarter was evenly played as both teams scored twice. Golden Coast Player of the Week Emily Bennett provided both of San Diego State’s goals and Maddy Parenteau added the final Aztec goal in the fourth quarter. UH, meanwhile, dented the scoreboard four times in the final frame to give the game its final margin.
