The NCAA Women’s Water Polo national championship matchup is set, with defending champion #1 USC meeting 2018 runnerup #2 Stanford on Sunday. Both teams had to endure an overtime thriller on Saturday to earn their spot in the title match.
The No. 2 USC women’s water polo team shrugged off a two-goal deficit in the fourth period and forced overtime, where the Trojans would eventually net the golden goal on Paige Hauschild’s blast from 10 meters out after almost 41 minutes of action to beat Stanford and win the MPSF Tournament championship.
Stanford’s Makenzie Fischer, Ryann Neushul and John Tanner swept the MPSF Player, Newcomer and Coach of the Year honors to lead the conference’s postseason awards.
Five collegiate water polo conferences named Week 13 players of the week, including the MPSF, which honored USC’s Paige Hauschild for her 100th career goal.
Although there were just 23 games played on Week 13, that did not stop the goal onslaught. Forty-seven players got in on the act as 51 efforts of three of more goals were recorded.
Of the 13 Week 13 contests involving a ranked team, just one resulted in an upset as Brown bested #22 Marist 6-4 in a non-conference battle. Meanwhile, #7 UC Irvine and Pomona-Pitzer claimed conference crowns with victories.
37 players netted four goals or more to headline the Week 10 standout performances. Bucknell’s Paige Furano led the way with a school record seven scores vs. Harvard on Sunday.
