LOS ANGELES — Junior Allison Skaggs gave her all to score a game-winning goal with four seconds left, propelling the No. 4-ranked the University of Michigan water polo team to a 5-4 victory over No. 6 Arizona State in the first game of the NCAA Tournament on Friday (May 13) at Spieker Aquatics Center.
With the game tied at 4-4, sophomore Caroline Anderson lobbed a pass inside from deep hoping one of her teammates could corral it and score. The ball was knocked away in front of the cage and Skaggs was able to beat ASU goalkeeper Mia Rycraw to the ball, scooping the ball with her right hand and sending it into the goal.
