The Girls Varsity Water Polo team proved yesterday that this year is different that those in the past.

For the first time in over three years, Mercy has almost been beaten by Carlmont in one of their most competitive games in the season with a finishing score of 16-15.

It was the first game of the season for the Girls with new head coach Cole Bielskis and they had high expectations throughout the game as the score was either tied or a lead of one goal was sustained the whole game.

At the half mark, Mercy had a lead of 9-8 in a an extremely highly stressed game. At one point Katelyn McGrath was the victim of a slapping fight started by a Mercy player apparently angered by a bad call.

Freshman newcomer Kristen Denny made quiet the splash scoring over half of Carlmont’s goals.

Had it not been for a bad call in which Carlmont’s Sarah Levin had a goal that didn’t count, the teams would have been tied at the final and gone into overtime. This bad call also resulted in Carlmont’s coach breaking his Oakley glasses moments after.

Nevertheless, the Carlmont Girls Varsity Water Polo got one step closer to beating their biggest rival and established themselves this year as a new force to beat.
