Shorthanded UCSB Men’s Water Polo Falls to Long Beach St.

Without two of its top players in Ivan Gvozdanovic and Boris Jovanovic, the UC Santa Barbara men's water polo team dropped another close match to Long Beach State, 10-6, on the road Friday night at the Ken Lindgren Aquatics Center. 

Entering the match seeking its first Golden Coast Conference victory, the Gauchos (9-9, 0-2) fell to rival Long Beach State (11-9, 1-2) for the second time this season after a 9-6 loss during opening weekend. 

On Friday night, the Beach took an early 3-1 lead before UCSB scored with the clock winding down to cut the lead to 3-2. In the second quarter, however, LBSU continued to carry the momentum and outscored the Gauchos 3-1 in the period to take a 6-3 advantage at the half. 

Another 3-1 spurt in the third quarter gave the Beach a 9-4 lead and too much of a lead to overcome to seal the win. 

Shane Hauschild led the Gauchos with three goals while Cole Brosnan, Adam Lott and Chad Nelson all tallied one goal apiece. Hauschild also led the team with three drawn ejections while Reed Cotterill added two. Justyn Barrios finished with 10 saves in front of the cage. 

UCSB returns to Campus Pool as it continues GCC play against UC Irvine this Friday, Oct. 27 at 3:00 p.m.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
