February 9, 2018
SDA took on LCC in a girl’s varsity water polo game which started off as a close match until SDA picked up the pace and ended with a three-goal lead Wednesday.
Within minutes, sophomore Siona Rector shot and scored the first goal of the game against LCC giving SDA a 1-0 lead by the end of the first quarter. Going into the second quarter, Rector was on a roll and finished another goal giving SDA a 2-0 lead. LCC was hectic and took a shot where the goalie, senior Lily Kreps, made an excellent save securing the lead for SDA. Rector, not ready to give up, received a pass from junior Julia Mendoza, where she finished yet another goal.
LCC went into the third quarter strong, finishing their first goal to make the score 3-1 in the middle of the third quarter.
Later in the game, junior Taylor Rudman made a long sprint to the ball and then passed it to Rector who finished another goal. The score was 4-2 with SDA in the lead. Now into the fourth quarter, senior Kara Clancy passed it to Rector, where Rector finished another goal. SDA continued to press the Maverick defense. With only one minute left in the game, junior Shannon Wylot passed the ball to Rector who secured another goal for SDA.
The SDA Varsity team took home the win beating LCC with a final score of 7-4.
