Tarrago propels No. 4 California past No. 10 San Jose State

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Freshman Roser Tarrago registered her second six-goal game of the season and No. 4 California overcame the absence of two key players in a 12-10 victory against No. 10 San Jose State in its Mountain Pacific Sports Federation opener on Saturday afternoon at Spieker Aquatics Complex.

Tarrago, a silver medalist with Spain at the 2012 London Olympics, scored all of her goals in the first half and five of the Bears’ first six. Her offensive output helped Cal compensate for the absence of MPSF leading scorer Dora Antal, who sat out with a minor arm injury. Junior Tiera Schroeder also missed the match with the flu.

Tarrago and Antal now each have two six-goal games this season. Before this season, there had been only seven six-goal outbursts in school history.

Tarrago scored Cal’s first two goals to tie it at 2-2, and after junior Kelly McKee got on the board, Tarrago added two more to give the Bears (14-3, 1-0 MPSF) a 5-2 advantage. From there, the match alternated between three and four-goal leads for Cal for most of the rest of the way. The Spartans (13-9, 0-2) scored their final goal with 52 seconds remaining.

Sophomore Brooke Vowell added a pair of goals for Cal and freshman goalie Madeline Trabucco made 13 saves.
