February 24, 2019 (Newport Beach) - The No. 25 Aztec water polo team (4-7) knocked off No. 21 CSUN 11-4 Sunday morning in their final game of the Barbara Kalbus Invitational. SDSU tied a season-high with 11 goals, which came from nine different players to avenge a 7-3 loss to the Matadors two weeks earlier.

Senior captain Hannah Carrillo paced SDSU with three goals while eight other Aztecs found the back of the net. Carrillo also recorded an assist and Emily Bennett had one goal and two assists. Goalkeeper Maura Cantoni had eight saves and held CSUN to four goals, the second lowest total allowed on the year.

With goals from Carrillo and Shelby Kraft, the Aztecs took a 2-1 lead into the second quarter. They would outscore CSUN 4-1 in the second and Casia Morrison scored a goal with one second left as the Aztecs took a 6-2 lead into the halftime break.

Karli Canale scored 40 seconds into the third quarter, part of a streak of four unanswered goals for the Aztecs. That would be the only SDSU goal in the third quarter, but the Aztecs finished strong and scored four fourth quarter goals.


The Aztecs’ 11 goals tied a season-high (Sonoma State, 1-19-19).


The Aztecs had nine players score, a season-high.


The Aztecs are off until March 6 when they host Villanova.
