On Sept. 24, men’s water polo headed to the Sullivan Aquatic Center in Santa Clara, California to face the Santa Clara University Broncos. The Eagles struggled to stay afloat as the Broncos dominated the pool, 19-7. Despite the loss, the men’s energy stayed high as they attempted 22 shots.


The Eagles started the match optimistically, with sophomore attacker Kenny Wulf scoring a penalty shot one minute and six seconds into the first period. However, the advantage was short-lived when the Broncos scored three back-to-back shots, placing them ahead for the remainder of the period. 


Biola’s defense remained strong, drawing 12 defensive exclusions—a program record. Still, SCU played aggressively, scoring a combined 12 goals in the third and fourth periods, 19-7. 

Freshman goalkeeper Mitchell Carpenter managed eight saves on the 33 shots attempted by the Broncos. The Eagles managed to put more points on the board with sophomore center defender Maxwell Osborn and freshman center defender Nolan Rapp each acquiring a pair of goals. Sadly, it was not enough as the Eagles faced defeat, 19-7.

Men’s water polo (1-6) will head to Fresno, California on Sept. 25 to take on the Fresno Pacific University Sunbirds. Footage from today’s match is located on Biola Athletics’ website.
