Buena 'Dogs pounce on Ranger water polo players,
By Misty Volaski
When Nordhoff's boys' water polo
squad fought Buena last week, it looked more like a swim meet
than a water polo meet. Only twice during the day - once in the
first period and once in the third - did Nordhoff look like
a match for the Bulldogs.
Nordhoff came out strong, but Buena came out stronger, doubling
Nordhoff's score by the end of the first quarter. Ben Foley and
Travis Moore contributed Nordhoff's only two points until the
third quarter, when Foley scored what turned out to be the last
The Bulldogs really showed their teeth in the second quarter,
when they scored an additional nine goals, bringing the score
to 13-2, Buena. With four more in the third and six in the fourth,
Nordhoff eventually fell to the Dogs, 23-3.
Buena's Jon Sapp was solid in the goal, making nine saves and
allowing just three goals on the day. Brian Condron and Scotty
Simans were the Dogs' big scorers, with nine goals between them.
Javier Garza did his share defending the Ranger goal, making
13 saves to bring his individual goalie stats to 311 saved attempts
Nordhoff will complete their regular season today at home against
Malibu, varsity at 3:15, junior varsity at 4:15 and frosh/soph
at 5 p.m.
