Girls Water Polo (3-0

Makenzie Fischer scored the final goal in a shootout to help USA Women’s Water Polo clinch a 12-10 victory over Australia in the championship of the Canada Cup on Dec. 8 in Gatineau, Quebec. The USA rallied from an 8-4 deficit to win the gold. Fischer now returns to interscholastic play with the Breakers who will face Mater Dei (SSCIF D-2 #2 ) next Wednesday, Dec. 18, 3:30 p.m. at the Laguna Community Pool. Admission is free to see Southern California’s top high school team take on the Trinity League school.

 

This past Tuesday, Dec. 10, Aria Fischer scored five goals and added two assists to lead Laguna to a 16-6 win over Edison at the local pool. Breakers trailed briefly at 2-1 with almost four minutes gone in the first quarter before Brighid Burnes tied the score and Natalie Selin added a goal 30 seconds later for a 3-2 Laguna lead. From then on, the Breakers controlled the tempo to the final horn. The win was Laguna’s 17th straight victory over the Chargers ranked No. 9 this week in the SSCIF D-I poll.

 

Last week, freshmen Aria Fischer scored four goals in the opening period as Laguna crushed Santiago/Corona 22-7 in a contest played on Thursday, Dec. 5 at the Laguna Community Pool. Fischer ended up with six goals, two assists, and four steals while Natalie Selin added four scores, Brighid Burnes three goals and Daniela Lucidi three goals.
