From page A6 | October 21, 2013 | Leave Comment

EL DORADO — El Dorado High’s varsity water polo program found success across the board Thursday afternoon as the boys and girls teams beat visiting Rosemont 14-2 and 17-4, respectively, at the Aquarics Center.

For the girls, it was the last home match for seniors Lola Pesce, Katryna Holifield, Sarah Miller and Madison Orr and the team made for an appropriate send-off with every member of the squad scoring.

“Today was a great match for the girls,” coach David Pimintel said. “They all played together as one team, and really played for each other out there. Our seniors are inseparable and you can tell they love playing together.”

Orr had one goal while Pesce had one goal, a steal and an assist. Holifield was tenacious on defense, racking up five steals while contributing two goals and Miller pitched in on all fronts with a goal, steal and assist.

El Dorado pushed early as Cougar Maddy Salerno was a distribution factory, setting up scoring plays with great lead-in passes en route to six assists, while Bean Salerno (three assists) was a powerful sharpshooter, with three goals including an upper V strike from the left side.

With six goals in each of the first two quarters, El Dorado pumped the brakes in the second half but still managed to put two in the back of the net in the third quarter and three in the fourth to round out the scoring.

Guarding the net, Emily Oliver racked up four blocks and three assists with brilliant deep passes on counter attacks and later in the match picked up a goal.

Following the girls’ win, El Dorado’s boys made quick work of Rosemont. Dylan Thompson dictated positioning with his mark, steamrolling his way to six goals with two steals and an assist. Nathan Camello found himself in a similar advantage on his man, picking up seven steals as well as a goal and an assist while goal keeper Cameron Neeley tallied 10 blocks and one assist, sending it deep to Thompson on a counter attack.

Josh Wienholz was a productive member of the win with three goals and three assists while Cameron Miller had a pair of goals, one assist and one steal in the win.
