The Sacred Heart Prep boys' water polo team saw its shot at a second straight undefeated West Catholic Athletic League season disappear when St. Francis scored in the third overtime to pull out an 11-10 victory on Thursday. The Lancers took over sole possession of first place at 5-0 (14-3 overall) while the Gators fell to 3-1 (11-3).
With the match tied at 10 following two mandatory overtime periods, the Lancers finally won it in sudden death when senior Evan Dellinger fired a shot into the left corner of the cage with just five seconds remaining. SHP had taken a 9-8 lead with 1:46 left in regulation on a goal by Connor Still. Dellinger, however, scored as the clock expired to send the game into overtime. There, both teams scored in the first extra period before Dellinger decided things for good.
Sacred Heart Prep, which was led by Alex Whittam's five goals and two from Paul Rudolph, will have an opportuntity to avenge Thursday's loss in this weekend's North-South Water Polo Challenge at Sacred Heart Prep and Menlo-Atherton. The Lancers and Gators would have to win their first two matches on Friday (against some of the top teams in the state) in order to reach a semifinal match Saturday at 10:20 a.m.
