Poway Invitational

Mariners take it on the chin from Granite, 21-5
Posted Sept. 19, 2002

Mar Vista High’s water polo team drew a big and physical Granite Hills team in
the first round of this year’s Poway Invitational and lost big again to fall to 0-2 on the season. The scoreboard against the Eagles read 21-5 -- following a 19-6 non-league loss Sept. 11 to Ramona.

“We are still learning,” said Mariners coach Chip Case. “The scoreboard read 21-5, but the boys learned some defensive lessons.”

Mar Vista scored twice in the first period on goals by Joe and Julian Czerwiec. Joe Czerwiec’s goal was from the two-meter position and opened the scoring in the game. In the second period, Shawn Johnson threw one in from the weak side wing. Brandon Keshka scored his first goals of the year from the outside. First-year senior Sean Gill got inside water and scored his first goals in the fourth period as well. Despite the the onslaught of 21 goals that got past Mariners goalie Eric Grieble, he did manage some spectacular saves when we needed. Grieble finished the game with 10 saves -- five of them in the fourth period.

Mar Vista plays Mt. Miguel Friday, Sept. 20, at 3 p.m. at Montgomery Middle School pool. The Matadors fell to 0-1 in tournament play following a lopsided loss to Carlsbad.
