On Monday, the CdM varsity boys water polo team faced up against Huntington Beach High School. It was a nail biting game. This was the team’s fifth game of the season. So far, they has won four and only lost one.

Throughout the game, the boys battled extremely hard. There were multiple penalty shots which were caused by the sport’s nature of being highly aggressive. Both senior Shane Papa and junior Tanner Pulice has some shots which resulted in CdM leading until the fourth quarter. During the last few minutes of the fourth quarter, Huntington caught up and tied 9-9. As the last 30 seconds on the clock clicked by, tension rose in the crowd and the student section roared with shouts, cheering on the boys. The fourth quarter ended in a tie which resulted in two three-minute halves. As the seconds ticked by, the water polo players grew more and more aggressive.

The fast paced match and high tension resulted in white water splashing which made it hard for the crowd to see exactly what was going on. Sadly, CdM lost in a final score of 11-12. Papa, a set guard, stated, “We may have lost but it was one of the funnest games to be apart of.” The team has a tournament this week, Thursday through Saturday. Be sure to come out and support!
