Despite being down five players due to illnesses, the Gunn boys’ water polo held on for its first SCVAL De Anza Division victory of the season, a 10-9 decision over host Monta Vista on Thursday in Cupertino. The Titans (1-4, 4-4) got five goals from junior Alex Berenfeld and two from Richard Yuan. The biggest goal of the match, however, came from goalie Spencer Jones. With two seconds remaining in the game, Jones took the ball at mid-pool and fired a low skip shot that found the cage at the buzzer for the victory. “It was an exciting game and a great first league win,” said Gunn coach Anne-Marie Napolitano. Gunn held an early 3-0 lead, but the Matadors came out of a timeout and quickly tied the game. “This was much the story for the entire game,” Napolitano said, “with Gunn getting two-three goals ahead and then Monta Vista quick to tighten the gap with counter-attacks and 6-on-5 opportunities.” With just over a minute to play in the fourth quarter, Gunn held a 9-8 lead before a turning the ball over late into the shot clock. That led to a counter by the Matadors, who had a shot blocked before it was shoved in to tie the match. That set up the remarkable winning shot by Jones.
