Nov. 13, 2013

Long Beach, Calif. - Long Beach State plays its final game outside of MPSF play this Thursday, heading to Loyola Marymount for an afternoon game at 3 p.m. before returning to conference action Sunday at USC.

Sophomore Zacchary Kappos increased his team lead in scoring to 55 goals on the year as Long Beach State went 1-2 last week, defeating UC San Diego before dropping a pair of MPSF contests in the team's return to the Campus Pool against UCLA and Stanford. With seven more goals this year, Kappos would enter the Top 10 single-season scorers at Long Beach State.
