Carpinteria sinks Nordhoff in water polo
The Carpinteria boys water polo team beat Nordhoff 15-6 Thursday.
Zach Isaac had a lot to do with that.
Isaac scored a team high of 5 goals at the match in Ojai.
“The Warriors came prepared and got off to a fast start scoring their four first quarter goals in the shallow end, where it is typically more difficult to score,” Carpinteria Coach Jon Ostuki told the News-Press in an email. “By halftime, the Warriors extended their lead to a 5-goal margin and never looked back.”
Mateo Handall pitched in 3 goals. Reyn Clayton and Asher Smith scored 2 each. And Ian Thomas, Gavin Lohuis and Coby Gonzales each hit the back of the goal once.
Goalie Jacob Taff had 6 saves on the day.
Next up for the Warriors is its match Tuesday at Carpinteria Community Pool against the Villanova Prep Wildcats.
