After winning the gold medal a year ago, the Stanford Red 16s boys' water polo team had to settle for the silver on Tuesday following a 7-5 loss to SET in the Platinum Division championship game of the S&R Sport Junior Olympics in Stanford's Avery Pool.

Stanford (6-2) had lost to SET (Saddleback El Toro) in Monday's quarterfinals, 7-4, which forced Stanford to win another match Monday night and then a semifinal game Tuesday morning to earn a rematch. Stanford did just that with victories over Rose Bowl and SoCal Black (10-3) in the semifinals.

After solid performances in the previous two games, Stanford came out flat in the finale and trailed by 4-1 at halftime. Stanford's only goal was by Thomas Agramonte with just 29 seconds left before the half.

Agramonte scored in the third quarter and teammate Mark Garner added another score with 1:18 left in the period as Stanford climbed into contention at 5-3. When Philip Bamberg fired in a goal with 4:36 left in the fourth quarter, Stanford trailed by just 5-4.

That, however, was as close as Stanford was to get to the gold medal. SET converted a five-meter penalty shot with 2:16 to play and scored again with a 6-on-5 advantage with 1:27 left to make it 7-4. Bamberg took advantage of a man advantage with 27 seconds to play for a final goal, but it was too little too late. Bamberg and Agramonte each scored two goals with Garner adding one.
