This past Tuesday, Coronado’s Girls Varsity Water Polo team played at Cathedral Catholic High School for the second time this season. Last month, Coronado lost to Cathedral in a tough game, 9-14. Now playing at Cathedral’s home pool, Coronado would face greater challenges to take their opponents. Junior Reese Oliver took the first goal of the quarter for Coronado, but Cathedral quickly recovered by scoring two more goals. By the end of the first half, Cathedral led 1-4, leaving Coronado at a disadvantage going into the third quarter fatigued. Coronado’s opponents took an even greater lead, as they scored five goals in the third quarter. Junior Ryan Sund scored one goal in this quarter and two more in the next quarter. Sheila Tomlin scored Coronado’s last goal of the game, and the final score of the game was 5-10.
After Tuesday’s game, Coronado was able to regroup for their game against El Camino High School on Thursday. Playing in their home pool at the BBMAC, Coronado was at the top of their game throughout the entire match. The first quarter was swept entirely by Coronado, 3-0. Junior Danni Croteau and Oliver would score these goals to go into the second quarter with a strong lead. El Camino found two opportunities to score in the second quarter, but Coronado still had a three-point lead at the end of the half, 5-2. Junior Ellie Brownlee scored three goals in the third quarter, while goalkeeper Isabel Zaller saved her eighth attempt of the game. Coronado finished with a 13-2 win.
The team’s current record is twelve wins to fifteen losses.
