Breda Vosters continued her stellar play and Cal added another milestone to its historic season on Saturday at San Jose State Aquatics Center.
Behind five goals from Vosters, the No. 2 Bears (23-4) notched a 13-10 victory over host San Jose State and earned a spot in the program's first ever conference title game. Vosters now leads the team with 62 scores, and Saturday marked her fourth performance of five goals or more this season.
The Spartans (13-10) were able to hang tough, aided a five-goal outing of their own from senior Adriana Vogt. SJSU never jumped back in front after taking a 1-0 lead, but trailed by just one until midway through the second period.
Cal went into halftime up, 8-5, and created more breathing room with a 10-5 lead in the third period.
The Bears will square off in Sunday's final against fourth-seeded UCLA, which handed No. 1 Stanford its first loss of the season in a 9-8 upset.
