Los Angeles, Calif. - An emotional, 3OT upset over LMU hours before their game against No. 7 UC Davis was too much to overcome as Santa Clara fell 8-5 in the second game of the LMU Invitational.
UC Davis scored four goals in two minutes in the first quarter and took a 7-1 lead in early in the third quarter. The Broncos tried their best to get a rally going, with two late goals in the third to bring the score to 7-3, but traded goals in the fourth quarter to bring the final score to 8-5.
Randahl Capurro had another big game in the goal with 18 blocks, giving her 39 over a two-game span.
"It was hard to get right back into it after a hard fought game a few hours earlier," said head coach Keith Wilbur. "But it was nice to get that win earlier. Every win here is going to be a good win."
The Broncos will play twice more to close out the tournament Saturday. They will face off against Cal State Bakersfield at 9:40 a.m. before meeting their third ranked team in four games, No. 15 UC San Diego at 2:20 p.m.
