La Verne, Calif. - Long Beach State won its two games Sunday over Whitter and La Verne by a combined score of 32-4, responding to a tough day Saturday to send a message at the Inland Empire Classic.

The Long Beach State (7-1) defense stepped up for the rest of the way, holding Whittier scoreless in the second half as the 49ers pulled away, including five goals in the fourth quarter.
In the second game, Long Beach State's defensive dominance continued. La Verne scored their only goal of the game in the first quarter, but the 49ers still held the lead at 3-1. The 49ers poured it on the rest of the way to take a convincing 19-1 win over La Verne to close out the Inland Empire Classic.
