EL DORADO — Four goals in the third period provided momentum for the El Dorado High boys water polo team against McClatchy at the Union Mine pool Thursday.

Behind 11-1 at the start of the period, the Cougars’ spurt cut the Lions’ lead to 11-5. But McClatchy held on to post a 13-6 Metro Conference victory.

“There is a reason McClatchy is the defending league champ,” El Dorado coach David Pimentel said. “I am proud of the effort our boys put out. After getting falling behind, they refused to give up, and fought back. We are young and getting better every week. We will be looking forward to our second game with them.”
After McClatchy scored the first goal in the period to take an 11-1 lead, the Cougars’ Nico Camello scored the next two goals within 16 seconds of each other to cut the lead to 11-3. In the final minute of the period, Dylan Thompson and Austin Davis scored goals to make it an 11-5 contest.
In the fourth period, the Lions’ defense held the Cougars’ offense to one goal, Camello’s second with 3:30 left.
Thompson scored his first goal of the match with 5:40 left in the first period to give El Dorado a 1-0 lead before McClatchy reeled off the the next 10.

El Dorado’s girls had the upper hand over McClatchy in the third period when Sarah Miller picked off a Lions pass and tossed it to Anika Morkowski , who fired the goal past the McClatchy goalie to tie the match at 4-all with 2:31 left.
Though Morkowski pulled her team even, the Lions scored the final two goals in the fourth period for the win.
“It was a tough loss,” Pimentel said. “Our girls have been working extremely hard, and were right there with McClatchy. We had a few good chances that we didn’t capitalize on, that would have made the difference.
“But the good thing is that we have played them once, we will do better the next time around. I believe in these girls. And the next time, there will be more confidence, and less nerves.”
Maddy Salerno scored three goals for El Dorado, including two in the first half.
