Zurcher Scores Two in Season Opener

Zurcher Scores Two in Season Opener

WHITTIERCarly Zurcher had a pair of goals and assists, and Mirei Yasuda and Monica Chernoff each scored a goal.

But the Occidental women's water polo team couldn't play spoiler in its season opener, falling to NAIA Concordia 14-4 at Whittier College on Saturday.

Oxy trailed just 3-2 after the first quarter, but committed too many turnovers in the second quarter, losing the 8-minute segment 3-0 to go down 6-2 at halftime.

The Tigers would have stayed closer if they had converted more on 6-on-5 advantage plays, going just 2 for 10 on the game.

Season Impact: The Tigers fall to 0-1 on the season.

Concordia improves to 1-2.

Next Game: The Tigers are back in action on Saturday night, facing Claremont-Mudd-Scripps at Whittier at 7:15 p.m.
