ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Newport Harbor High product Jessica Robinson scored a key goal to help the No. 2-seeded Cal women's water polo team defeat No. 3 UCLA, 7-4, in an NCAA semifinal match Saturday at the University of Michigan.
Cal will face its rival, top-seeded Stanford, in the final Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time.
Stanford, which features Corona del Mar High alumni Kate Baldoni and Victoria Kennedy, got past No. 4 USC, 8-4, in another semifinal match.
Robinson, a junior lefty driver for Cal, picked a good time to score her 10th goal of the season. Her six-on-five strike from the outside gave the Golden Bears (26-4) a 4-3 lead midway through the third period.
