Varsity Girls Water Polo
St. Francis 12, Menlo-Atherton 5
Date of competition: Wednesday, September 19, 2012
While the Menlo-Atherton girls' water polo team had a better record than St. Francis at last weekend's St. Francis Invitational, that meant little to the Lancers on Wednesday as they toppled the Bears, 12-5, in a nonleague match. M-A (4-2) kept the match close at halftime before St. Francis (5-2) scored five goals in the third period to pull away. Bears' goalie Sierra Sheeper was under fire throughout the game and came up with 15 saves. Jenna Swartz scored three goals and Jessica Heilman added two. Both teams will compete in the same division at the 18th annual Amanda MacDonald Invitational this weekend at Menlo School.
Menlo-Atherton 1 1 1 2 -- 5
St. Francis 2 3 5 2 -- 12
M-A -- Swartz 3, Heilman 2
SF -- Batcheller 5, Stanbach 3, Strutner, Goff, Burke
M-A goalie saves: Sheeper 15
Records: Menlo-Atherton 4-2; St. Francis 5-2
