Berkeley, Calif. - No. 9 Long Beach State outscored the Golden Bears down the stretch, but couldn't overcome a slow start in a 15-10 loss to No. 4 California in the second match of the NorCal Tournament for the 49ers. Dimitrios Lappas scored three goals to lead the 49ers.
Long Beach State (8-2) fell behind early as California (6-0), led by Aleksa Saponjic, took a 4-1 lead over the 49ers in the first period. The 49ers picked up goals from Carter Taylor and Conner Reilly in the second quarter, but ultimately trailed 8-3 going into the second half.
California struck first again in the second half, but a goal from Nolan McConell got the 49ers going, as the team scored seven goals in the second half. That included five in the final period, including a pair from Lappas coming down the stretch.
Long Beach State returns to the pool on Sunday starting at 9:25 a.m., when they will play No. 6 UC Santa Barbara. The 49ers will also have one additional match Sunday before heading home to Long Beach.
