MATS Varsity Water Polo Waxes Overmatched Daugherty Valley

Every player contributes in 22-1 victory

In a fitting tribute to this year's graduating seniors on Senior Night, the MATS Men's Varsity water polo team, behind seniors Coufal, Furtado, Garrett, Kalbus, Kirchberg, Smudsky, Watson and Whitsitt, jumped out to a lightning quick 4-0 lead in the first two minutes en route to a 22-1 waxing of Daugherty Valley.  The MATS throttled back and coasted to the victory, playing all 24 team members.  Every healthy member of the MATS contributed in the decisive victory, with juniors Larsen, Sitar, Oak and Stavena all getting goals in the second half. Trent Schwarz, sidelined for the season with multiple concussions, continued his tireless support cheering on the victory.  DVHS's lone goal came on a referee-assisted 5 meter penalty shot in the closing seconds to foil the shutout. 

Next up - a challenging league game against a tough Las Lomas squad on their home turf on Wednesday October 24th.
