The area will have two boys water polo teams in Saturday’s CIF-SS Ford Championships.
Here’s Wednesday’s results:
Damien 11, Palos Verdes 9 – The Spartans used a five-goal surge to rally for a victory at William Woollet Aquatic Center. Damien will face Laguna Beach in the finals there at 5 p.m. on Saturday.
La Serna 9, Bonita 8 – The Bearcats fell behind La Serna 6-2 and could never quite catchup, although they had chances, before losing at Mt. San Antonio College. Bonita had two shots blocked in the final 12 seconds. The Bearcats also had a goal wiped out when officials ruled it had not crossed the goal line.
Nogales 7, Nipomo 3 — Nogales will make its first trip after beating Nipomo in a Division 7 semifinal at Arroyo Grande High School. Raul Castaneda had three goals and Nick Estevez two. The Nobles will face top-seeded Santa Ynez at 9:20 a.m. on Saturday.
