The Big Splash failed to live up to expectations this fall. The annual match between NorCal’s biggest varsity water polo powers is a typically dramatic affair. Cal ignored the script and pulled away from the host Cardinal to earn an important late-season meeting, 13-8.
The win keeps Cal in the third seed for the MPSF championship that begins on Friday. They will meet UC Santa Barbara in their opener while #5 Stanford will face #4 USC.
