BOSTON, MASS. -- It took more than guts to get this glory. After 45 minutes and 47 seconds of water polo, USC freshman Anni Espar drilled the game-winner for the Trojans to beat Stanford 10-9 in the third sudden-death period of play, winning the 2013 NCAA Women's Water Polo Championship for the top-seeded Women of Troy in Boston, Mass. The match was not only the first women's water polo NCAA final to go to overtime, it pushed the record out through the two 3-minute overtime periods and two 3-minute sudden death periods before Espar's bar-in rocket put a stop to things with the winner during the third sudden-death frame. The stunning and exhausting victory is USC's fourth national championship.
In other action, UCLA topped Hawaii 13-8 for third place, Princeton downed UC-San Diego 12-10 in overtime for fifth place, and Pomona-Pitzer defeated Iona 13-12 for seventh place.
