The Palo Alto boys' water polo team not only advanced to the semifinals of the SCVAL De Anza Division Tournament on Thursday, but qualified for the Central Coast Section playoffs as well with a 16-8 dunking of Homestead at Gunn High. The No. 2-seeded Vikings (15-10) will take on No. 3 Mountain View at Gunn at 4:50 p.m., with the winner advancing to Saturday's title match against the Gunn-Los Altos winner.

Sophomores Bret Pinsker (5), Sam Kelley (4) and Will Conner (3) combined for 12 goals for the Vikings (15-10), who began subbing in the first quarter. Peter Rockhold sparked the defense with three steals in less than a full quarter.
