To start off this November the men’s varsity water polo faced a league rivalry game against Eastlake High School. The game was filled with intensity and suspense, but only one team could come out on top in this match.

Mater Dei was on a 12 game win streak before falling in a match against Hilltop High School. The team needed to win that one to get their pride and hopes back to what they were hoping to be league champs. The team showed their strength to beat Bonita Vista High School in a close one and getting the win at 7-5 Mater Dei. With their spirits up the team thought they could have a shot at being league champions.

Eastlake having a rough season with a record at 4 wins 14 losses looking to come to Mater Dei and possibly spoil the chances of Mater Dei winning that league championship. Both Mater Dei and Eastlake knowing that this would be a good match.

Sophomore AquaCrusader Juan Hernandez shows focus and determination throughout the season.

Finally, the moment has come where these two talented teams would face off in the Mater Dei pool.

Unfortunately, Mater Dei would be without a key player in this one as Juan Hernandez, team captain, was out due to medical issues.

Both teams hopped in the pool ready for a good one. Only one would come out victorious in this one. The game was dominated by Eastlake most of the game but in the last quarter Mater Dei showed their heart and rallied back and put up a fight. Unfortunately, Eastlake held the lead with thirteen points to eleven as time expired, but it was nothing less than an amazing game to watch.
