The Sagehen women’s water polo team (13-11, 8-0 SCIAC) picked up two big wins against SCIAC competition last week, beating Occidental (7-13, 1-9 SCIAC) 17-2 at home Saturday, then outlasting Redlands (11-15 4-6 SCIAC) 10-8 in double overtime on the road Wednesday.

P-P’s perfect SCIAC season was put to the test at Redlands. After the Bulldogs scored three straight in under three minutes in the fourth to come back and tie the game, the two teams traded goals in the final two minutes and entered overtime knotted at eight. After a scoreless first overtime period, Natalie Hill PO ’19 scored to give the Sagehens the lead, then assisted on Yu’s goal with one minute left to put the game away.
