LA JOLLA, Calif.--CSU Bakersfield split on the final day of the UCSD Triton Classic to finish 11th in the tournament.

No. 15 Loyola Marymount defeated CSU Bakersfield 9-8 in the third match of the UC San Diego Triton Classic Sunday afternoon.

The difference in the match was the fourth quarter in which the Lions outscored the Roadrunners 3-1. Nicola Barrett (Fr., Cape Town, South Africa, Rustenburg HS), Taylor Hanson (Jr., Modesto, Calif., Johansen HS), Shannon McKenzie (R-Sr., Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., Rancho Cucamonga HS), and Amanda Nesbit (Sr., Chino Hills, Calif., Chino Hills HS) each scored two goals. McKenzie added three assists. Alex Bayer (So., Alta Loma, Calif., Los Osos HS) made five saves.

"If we play with the intensity we showed against LMU, good things will happen in every game for us," said CSUB head coach Jason Gall.

The Roadrunners defeated Cal State East Bay 10-8 for 11th place. Janelle Shelby scored four goals while Niki De Leon (Fr., Montebello, Calif., Montebello HS) had two. Bayer made the third most saves in a match as she turned away 18 East Bay shots.

"We played two really good games today," Gall said. "The thing we've been working on are starting to click. I'm excited about the progress that we made this weekend."
