The Women’s Water Polo game on September 5th, 2018 at Miramar College was a total blow out! The game started at 2:00 pm and before halftime Mesa had already sealed the deal and ended up winning the game a staggering 15-1. Within the first two minutes of the first period Mesa’s Carly Lupien scored the first goal. Mesa’s offence controlled the ball for most of the game and they played some rough defense on top of that. Miramar was clearly having trouble trying to keep the pace throughout the game. Their defense just wasn’t really there, and the same goes for their offense. The final score really speaks for itself.

By the beginning of the second period Mesa was up 9-0 and scored again within the first two minutes of that period as well. The goalie for Miramar, Catherine Bresniker, had her work cut out for her in the first half. With the rest of her team clearly gassed, she seemed to be the only thing standing in the way of Mesa from just lobbing the ball in the goal. Last year Mesa’s Olympians were conference champions and finished their season undefeated. They are looking very strong so far although it is still early in the season. The previous Assistant Coach and first year Head Coach, Emma Sasson must be doing something right because by the end of the first half Mesa was ahead 11-0.

Just over one minute into the second half Miramar stepped it up by getting on the scoreboard thanks to Leilani Miyasaki. The victory for Miramar was short lived as Mesa was awarded a penalty shot almost immediately following the first and only point Miramar had that game. The end of the third period read 12-1, Mesa. The top scorers for Mesa were Imperial Espinoza, who made 4 of the 15 points all of which were in first period, and Carly Lupien, who had three unassisted points throughout the game.
