LOS ANGELES — The University of La Verne men's water polo fell, 14-3, at NCAA Division I Loyola Marymount on Saturday afternoon at Burns Aquatics Center.
La Verne falls to 1-7 overall while LMU improves to 4-7.
The Leopards stayed aggressive on offense, getting off 29 shots to LMU's 39, but weren't efficient with their efforts.
The Lions started the game on a 6-0 run until Bennett stopped the bleeding with three minutes left in the first half. But LMU ripped off six unanswered goals to run away with a 2-1 lead.
La Verne goalie Ian Hernandez turned in a workman's effort in goal, turning away 14 shots.
Rey Julian Castillo fired off a game-high 10 shots, but could not find the back of the net.
The Leopards are back in action on Thursday at home against Fordham.
