Seven different Lancers netted at least one goal as the Pasadena City College women's water polo team snapped a start of the season, 5-game losing streak Friday by defeating Ohlone College, 11-5, at the Cabrillo Tournament (Aptos in Northern California).

Stephanie Velasco scored her team-leading 13th and 14th goals, added two assists, and made two steals (three overall) all in the first quarter to help PCC jump out to a 5-1 lead. The Lancers extended the lead to 8-2 by halftime and coasted from that point.

Jazmine Hernandez and Scarlett Bonilla each scored two goals and contributed two assists while Caroline Liu fired in two goals as well. Mariana Silva added a goal and both Camille Saurenman and Katherine Kleinschmidt registered their first collegiate goals of their young freshmen careers.

The Lancers were an efficient 11-for-25 on shots, a .440 scoring percentage. Goalie Alenoush Aslanin made four saves and three steals over the first three quarters, and gave up only two of Ohlone's goals. 

In a South Coast Conference match played September 25, Long Beach City overpowered the Lancers, 19-4. Velasco scored all four PCC goals. On September 20 at the El Camino College Mini Tournament, the Lancers were defeated by host El Camino, 19-9, and by Santa Monica, 12-5. 

{Editor's Note--the Cabrillo tournament continues with PCC playing Modesto Junior College at 5 p.m. Friday, then two more games TBA on Saturday.}
