Dons water polo down Breakers twice

January 14, 2005

In a preview of things to come, the Laguna Beach High girls' water

polo team took on host Santa Barbara in nonleague play, a day before

the Breakers opened up tournament play at the Tournament of Champions

in Santa Barbara.

The host Dons recorded a 12-5 victory over the Breakers.

Laguna was coming off a three-week layoff. Two days later, Santa

Barbara won a rematch against Laguna, 11-6, in tournament action.


In the 12-5 loss, Addison Doud's two goals paced a Breakers attack

that saw Jessica McKee and Breanna Duplisea each score once.

Alana Thomson had four saves.

In the latest CIF-Southern Section water polo rankings, Laguna is

ranked second in the Division II poll.

The rankings were released Monday by the Southern Section office

in Los Alamitos.

The Breakers are behind Pacific Coast League foe Corona del Mar,

which heads to poll.

Another Pacific Coast League team, University, comes in at No. 9.

The remainder of the top 10 includes No. 3 Villa Park -- whom

Laguna defeated last week at the Tournament of Champions in Santa

Barbara, No. 4 Peninsula, No. 5 La Habra, No. 6 Tustin, No. 7 Sunny

Hills, No. 8 Mira Costa and No. 10 Fullerton.
