Men’s water polo returned home on Saturday to face off against the Air Force Falcons Academy. The Eagles played a slow first half but showed high enthusiasm throughout the second. The newest team continued to show improvement during the game but ultimately lost, 14-8.

HARD LOSS

The first half was disappointing for the Eagles as USAFA’s offense played aggressively, finding the back of the net 10 times before halftime. Biola’s offense struggled to keep up but were subdued by the Falcon’s defense which garnered 12 steals in the first half.

The Eagles played an enthusiastic second half, making the game more competitive. Sophomore attacker Kenny Wulf led Biola totaling two goals with freshman center defender Nolan Rapp aiding with defensive takeaways. 

Despite their efforts in the second half, the Eagles faced defeat overall, 14-8. This places Biola at a 0-5 standing in the Western Water Polo Association

Men’s water polo (1-13) will play against Loyola Marymount University next Saturday at 11 a.m. Stats from today’s game are located on the Biola Athletics website.
