LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. -- UCLA won its 100th NCAA title Sunday when Courtney Mathewson scored three goals to lead the women's water polo team to a 5-4 victory over top-seeded Stanford in the championship game.

Goalie Emily Feher tallied nine saves, as Stanford made a fourth quarter run after UCLA led 4-1 after three periods. Two of Lauren Silver's three goals came in the final period, as her two scores to start the quarter cut the UCLA lead to 4-3.

Mathewson then scored with 6:24 left, before Kira Hillman countered with 5:38 left. Stanford had one last chance to tie it, but could not convert with 34 seconds left.
