Biola University’s men’s water polo team won their third consecutive match against the University of Toronto in an exhibition match on Saturday. Senior attacker Kenny Wulf’s hat trick led the Eagles’ offensive efficiency in the match. Meanwhile, sophomore goalie Mitchell Carpenter’s 11 saves anchored Biola’s defense. 

Toronto held an early 3-2 lead before Biola found the net five consecutive times. Wulf scored two of his goals as a result of capitalized 6-on-5 opportunities from Toronto’s kick-out tendencies. The Varsity Blues managed to erase a fraction of the scoring deficit in the third period, finding themselves down by two. However, the fourth period saw another scoring stretch for Biola, diminishing Toronto’s comeback effort. The scoring barrage carried the Eagles to a 12-8 victory over the Varsity Blues.

The Eagles took four out of five matches in the California Baptist University Lancer Joust tournament, improving their record to 10-14 overall. Biola continues their season in a home scrimmage against Sierra College on Oct. 20 at 1 p.m.
