Men's Water Polo Opens California Trip with 18-8 Loss to No. 3 Pacific
Release:   10/25/2013

STOCKTON, Calif. – Julian Colina and Mike Kimble scored two goals apiece to lead No. 18 Bucknell against No. 3 Pacific Friday evening, but the Tigers tallied eight of the final nine goals in the first half on their way to an 18-8 victory over the Bison. It was the first contest in a five-game California road trip for Bucknell, which saw its four-game winning streak snapped.

A goal by Alex Nowlin midway through the first quarter brought the Bison to within 3-2, but Pacific scored the final four goals in the period to open a 7-2 advantage. The Tigers then outscored Bucknell 4-1 in the second quarter.

Single goals by Stefan Aleksic, Jack Else and Nick Hale rounded out the scoring for the Bison, who were playing their highest ranked opponent since battling No. 3 California last September.

Bucknell (10-5) was playing its first game as a ranked team since Sept. 22 at Johns Hopkins.

The Bison will continue their five-game trip to California Saturday with games against Fresno Pacific (1:40 p.m. Eastern) and No. 11 UC Davis (5:40 p.m. Eastern) Saturday.
