Game Recap

Every year we play a water polo game where we are supremely outmatched and every year we set realistic goals of scoring 5 goals and keeping them under 20. For us meeting that team goal constitutes a win every time we play Laguna Beach. Tonight we had 6 goals, 4 scored by Julian Reyes including a late game 5 meter penalty shot, with Jairo Galvan and David Ramos contributing the other 2 goals. It was the defense tonight that I am most proud of, we never stopped swimming, we chased every fast break (sometimes sucking toe bubbles but still chasing), and we never rolled over and just gave up. We had 11 steals from 4 different players and a number of key plays that led to poor shot choices and missed opportunities for their offense. Laguna knows they are by the far the better team in the water but they showed tremendous sportsmanship tonight by not running up the score and allowing both of our teams to play the best game of water polo possible for our huge ability gap and for that we are extremely grateful.
