EL DORADO — With tenacious defense, relentless pressure and an offense that used precision passing, the water polo squad from El Dorado dominated Kennedy from start to finish en route to a convincing 17-1 victory Tuesday at the Aquatics Center on the Union Mine campus.

“Our team was happy with our effort today and the defense was solid. We’ll need to continue to improve with some areas of our game and Thursday will be a tough match against McClatchy. As for today, the team played very well and we’re looking forward to a great season and making the playoffs,” the duo of Bishoy and Mark Awad said after the contest.

The Cougars wasted little time going on the attack and one of those opportunities resulted with Bishoy whistling a shot past the Kennedy keeper. El Dorado continued to build its momentum as Dakota Keaton, six goals on the day, and Carl Unverferth, five, paced the Cougars to an early 4-0 advantage after one period of play.

Over the course of the remainder of the match, El Dorado utilized its strong passing to create scoring chances in the front of the goal. In the second and third periods the Cougars capitalized with 10 goals and at the end of three periods held a commanding 14-0 lead.

The only thing in doubt was the shutout but that was squandered due to a penalty shot that gave Kennedy its only goal. Overall, the goal tending by Daniel Wienholz was solid with Jordan Prall, Darin Caldwell and Daniel Varcaro providing stellar defense through the entire match as El Dorado emerged with the big victory.
