Date of competition: Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Getting four goals from Evan McClelland, Menlo-Atherton advanced to the championship match of the Central Coast Section Division I boys' water polo tournament with a 9-7 overtime victory over No. 2 St. Francis (12-17) on a rainy Tuesday night at Serra High in San Mateo. The No. 3-seeded Bears (15-10) will take on No. 1 Bellarmine (18-10) in the title match Saturday at the George F. Haines International Swim Center in Santa Clara. The Bells bounced No. 5 Palo Alto (24-6) from the playoffs, 14-5, in the other semifinal at Serra. Saturday's showdown will be a rematch of last year's CCS finale that Bellarmine won, 9-8.
