Trip to Hawaii is a Downer

    The UCSD women’s water polo team did not have a very nice trip to Hawaii last week, as they lost a pair of games to the University of Hawaii Rainbows.

    “”We didn’t execute very well,”” said Triton head coach Larry Sanders. “”We didn’t play to our potential.””

    The first game went to the Rainbows, 11-5.

    The Tritons had a chance early on with the game knotted at three. Then Hawaii took off with four unanswered goals.

    The second game was all Hawaii as they won 14-5. UCSD never got into it.

    “”I don’t think we shot the ball particularly well,”” Sanders said. “”We had the opportunity to score but didn’t put the ball into the cage.””

    UCSD was really hurting with sophomore star Samara Silverman out with poison oak.

    “”We hope to have her back this weekend,”” Sanders said.

    The two losses drop the Tritons’ record to 2-4 on the season. Next up for UCSD is a trip to Santa Barbara this weekend. Friday, the Tritons host Princeton at noon and Saturday and Sunday they will participate in the UC Santa Barbara Tournament.
