Sept. 27, 2003

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - The Santa Clara University men's water polo team fell 5-3 to Division III top-ranked Redlands this evening in continuing action at the Slugfest Invitational, hosted by UC Santa Cruz at its East Field House. The loss moves the Broncos' record to 7-4 on the season.

"It was a close game, but we're still having a hard time scoring goals," SCU head coach Keith Wilbur said. "The guys are playing good defense and getting good looks on offense, but we're just not putting the ball away. I was pleased with the effort level, but it's been our fourth game in two days and we have two more to grind out tomorrow."

Grant Allison, Kenny Flanagan-De La Hoz and Kevin Starry each posted one goal, while Peter Moore had seven saves while guarding the cage.

Santa Clara closes out the Invitational with two matches on Sunday: against 15th-ranked U.S. Air Force Academy at 9:05 a.m. and against Division III sixth-ranked Pomona-Pitzer at 3:35 p.m.
