Varsity Boys Water Polo
Gunn 17, Mountain View 5
Date of competition: Thursday, October 2, 2014
The defending champion Gunn boys took over sole possession of first place in the SCVAL De Anza Division with a big 17-5 dunking of host Mountain View on Thursday night. The Titans (5-0, 7-5) knocked the Spartans (4-1) into a second-place tie with Palo Alto as senior Ari Wayne poured in eight goals and Jared Gencarella added three. Gunn will host Paly on Tuesday at 3:30 p.m., with first place at stake.
"I was pleasantly surprised about the result," said Gunnn coach Matt Johnson. "Obviously, Mountain View is a good team and one of our toughest games in league, so to come out and play the way we did says a lot about the work our guys put in. We keep getting better, every practice, every game. And that is our goal. Continue to improve. (Goalie Anthony) Zunino was solid, made the saves he needed to make. When he is on, we are tough."
