Men's Water Polo Moves To Corona Del Mar Thursday

Nov. 6, 2013

Long Beach, Calif. - Long Beach State will continue their final homestand as nomads, hosting UC San Diego Thursday evening at Corona Del Mar High School at 5 p.m. That is the first of three games scheduled for the 49ers this week.

The 49ers will start off the week with their final home non-conference game, taking on UC San Diego at Corona Del Mar, in what hopefully will be their last game outside of the Campus Pool. The 49ers beat the Tritons a year ago in San Diego 11-8, but this is the first meeting between the teams this season.
