Stockton, Calif. -

No. 8 Long Beach State kept the match close early, but could not keep up as the Beach fell to Pacific 12-8.

Duncan Lynde and Chandler Kaltenbach led LBSU with two goals a-piece. Lovro Miocevic, Jacob Fujioka, Josh Tice and Lee Griffin all contributed with one goal each.

The match was even to start as the first quarter ended with both teams tied at three. Lynde and Chandler Kaltenbach scored the first two, and Kaltenbach netted his second with three seconds left in the quarter with a 6-on-5 man advantage.

The Tigers outscored LBSU in the second with five goals compared to the Beach’s two. Sophomores Lovro Miocevic and Lynde gave the Beach their two goals to end the first half.

Only one goal scored in the third period, and it went to Pacific’s Kale Ai with just 31 seconds left on the clock to give the Tigers a 9-5 lead going into the fourth quarter.

Fujioka started the scoring for the Beach in the fourth, and early with less than a minute off the clock to cut the deficit to three, but Pacific answered with two goals from Aleksandar Petrovic. Griffin and Tice added two more nearing the end, but it wasn’t enough to upset the Tigers.

Senior Pavo Ljepopio had 13 saves, being his 12th match with double-digit saves this season and third in the last eight games.
