Carp girls water polo falls to Buena
The Carpinteria High girls water polo team failed to advance to the second round of the CIF Division 4 playoffs, falling to Buena by a score of 6-3.
“The Warriors did not execute on offense as well as they have been recently,” said Carpinteria Coach Jon Otsuki. “They had plenty of opportunities from the 2 meter position but just could not put the ball into the back of the net. Buena was the quicker team today, both on offense and defense. The Bulldogs beat the Warriors on counterattacks and inside drives. On defense they stole the ball and forced desperation shots.”
Carpinteria’s goals were scored by Kate Isaac, Lilli Nemetz and Giulia Piccoletti. Goalie Erin Otsuki tallied 15 blocks on the day.
Carpinteria’s overall record fell to 16-7 with the loss.
