Hogue Comes Out Of Goal, Scores Hat Trick; WWP Now 3-1 In SCC
If she wasn't already deemed the best goalie in Pasadena City College women's water polo history, freshman Hannah Hogue might be one of the Lancers' go-to scorers. Hogue showed some of that vast talent Wednesday when she scored 3 goals over the final four minutes of play in the Lancers' 15-2, South Coast Conference victory over visiting Rio Hondo.The Lancers improved to a sparkling 3-1 in conference play and upped their overall record to 5-7. Hogue, who made 3 saves and 4 steals as goalie, entered the pool field for the last nine minutes of the game. Sophomore Jade Wilia took over for Hogue and made 2 saves. Hogue did not allow a goal defensively in the PCC cage.
Pasadena dominated Rio Hondo (1-9, 0-4) by scoring 5 goals in both the first and second quarters for a commanding 10-0 halftime lead. Freshman Anneke Forrest scored 3 goals with 3 assists and 3 steals to lead the offense. Both Forrest and Hogue are products of Temple City High.
Sophomore Merry Sanders also recorded the hat trick while Wilia and sophomore Shannon Adams each added 2 goals a piece. Freshmen Gabriela Budilo-Wilson (Pasadena HS) and Nicole York (San Marino) chipped 1 goal each.
On October 9-10, the Lancers host the 9th Pasadena Bowl tournament. PCC will play Friday matches against Cuesta (12:20 p.m.) and Diablo Valley (3:50 p.m.), then Saturday games v. Orange Coast (11:20 a.m.) and Citrus (1:40 p.m.). Defending CCCAA state champion Cerritos also participates in the 6-team, 2-day tourney with all matches played at the Aquatic Center.
