Jan 23, 2015

GOLETA – Sophomore All-American Dora Antal registered 11 goals in two games as the No. 4 Cal Women’s Water Polo team notched a pair of lopsided victories on Friday at the UC Santa Barbara Invitational.

Antal, the 2014 MPSF Newcomer of the Year and First Team All-American, netted six goals as the Bears (4-0) hammered Cal State Bakersfield, 20-4. Four of Antal’s goals came in the first period to help Cal establish an 11-2 lead at halftime.

Freshman Carla Carrega, the reigning MPSF Newcomer of the Week, added four goals against the Roadrunners. Sophomore All-American Anna Illes pitched in with three scores.

Antal poured in five more goals as the Bears defeated Azusa Pacific, 24-5. Illes also had five goals against the Cougars while sophomore Emily Loughlin had four and junior Sierra Smiley added three.

Antal now has 17 goals in four matches after leading the Bears last season with 75, the fourth-highest single-season total ever at Cal.
