A stingy Long Beach State defense was at its stingiest on Friday night as the women's volleyball team defeated visiting UC Riverside 25-13, 25-14, 25-15. The Beach (17-4, 7-0 Big West) remained undefeated in conference play with its seventh win in a row and 12th Big West win in a row, dating back to last year.
It was a big night for the Long Beach State women's soccer team.
