Recap courtesy of Sonoma State
ROHNERT PARK, Calif. – Fueled by five-goal performances from Cassidy Mundt and Lily Carlon, Sonoma State defeated conference-rival Cal State Monterey Bay 15-10 from Dr. G. Edward Rudloff Pool Sunday afternoon.
Monterey Bay took the first lead of the game off a goal from Olivia Woolery, which sparked a back-and-forth battle through the first period of play. Lily Carlon responded for the Seawolves, tying the game at one with 6:06 to play, before striking again two-and-a-half minutes later, putting Sonoma State up 2-1. However, the lead was short-lived as Marisa Lovos equalized twenty seconds later. Lucy Gates then put the Otters up 3-2, taking their second lead of the game. The Seawolves battled back over the final 1:52 of the period, scoring three goals to Monterey Bay's one—two coming from Carlon.
The Seawolves found their groove following the 5-4 first period and continued to lead through the rest of the game.
The two teams exchanged five goals apiece through the second and third, but the hosts remained on top. Mundt netted two of her five goals in the second, pushing Sonoma State to a 8-7 lead, before the sophomore pushed her team ahead by two with another goal in the third. Junior, Taylor Brooks converted a power play opportunity with 2:43 remaining in the period before the Otters scored two over the next minute to once again pull within one, 10-9.
Sonoma State exploded through the final period, notching five goals from four different players. Lily Carlon netted her fifth 50 seconds into the fourth, and Brooks scored her second of the day just 22 seconds later. Monterey Bay's Morgan Tucker pulled the visitors to a 12-10 deficit but Mundt and JoJo Williams closed out the game with three goals in the final 4:01.
With the win, Sonoma State improves to 6-15 overall and 2-3 in WWPA play. The Seawolves return to action on April 14 in Heyward where they will face off against conference opponent Cal State East Bay at 1:00 pm.
