A close game turned into a heartbreaker for the Cal State East Bay water polo team on Saturday at the Pioneer Pool.

With the game tied at 9 and 2:41 left in the final period, Sonoma State junior utility player Carleigh Robinson received an assist from fellow junior utility player Ellen Peterson and laced a shot past CSUEB junior goalkeeper Nikki Vaughan for the one point victory.

Robinson recorded a game-high 5 goals on the day for the Seawolves who are now 11-13 overall and 2-1 in Western Water Polo Association Conference games. The Pioneers fell to 13-10 overall and are now 0-2 in WWPA contests.

The Pioneers got things going when senior two-meter player Taylor Cross scored the game’s first goal on an assist from senior utility player Tori Dettloff to make the score 1-0. The Seawolves scored 4 of the next five goals to take a 4-2 lead before the Pioneers bounced back. CSUEB scored 3 consecutive goals to take back the lead 5-4 just before halftime.

Both teams exchanged goals in the final two periods until the game tied at 9 before the game-winning goal by Sonoma State sealed the home loss.

The final game of the regular season for East Bay is tomorrow at noon at Chabot College in Hayward when they will take on the Cal State Monterey Bay Otters (5-22, 0-2). The WWPA Conference championships are set for April 29 through May 1 at Chabot College in Hayward.
