Cal squeezes by Long Beach State

Water Polo, Men's, Cal, Long Beach State

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Redshirt freshman Farrel South scored the game winner with 25 seconds left as No. 5 California came back from a 5-1 first-period deficit to post a 10-9 victory against Long Beach State on Sunday in an MPSF match. Paced by sophomore Colin Mulcahy’s five goals, the Golden Bears improved to 14-5 overall and 3-2 in conference play.

Cal fell into a deep hole to the 49ers in the first period, but was slowly able to get back into the contest thanks to three goals by Mulcahy in the second period. That got the Bears within 8-4 at halftime. From there, Kirk Everist’s squad dominated the final 16 minutes, outscoring Long Beach State 6-1 in the last two periods.

A score by Mulcahy with 2:45 left in the contest tied the match at 9-9, and then South knocked in the game-winning goal with 25 seconds left to give Cal the come-from-behind win. South led the Bears with two goals in Friday’s match at UCLA.

Senior Hunter Gettelfinger, senior Giacomo Cupido, junior Blake Kelly and sophomore Thomas Agramonte also notched goals for Cal, while junior goalie Jon Sibley finished with seven saves in three periods.
