The Menlo boys’ water polo team dropped an 8-7 decision to Miramonte in the consolation championship game of the North-South Challenge on Saturday at Menlo-Atherton High. The Knights (17-6), who finished 10th overall in the 16-team tourney, went 2-2 in the two-day event. They advanced to the final match with a 5-3 victory over De La Salle in Saturday morning’s third round. Senior Chris Akin scored three goals with five steals to lead the win over De La Salle while junior John Holland-McCowan scored three times in the loss to Miramonte. Of the four Central Coast Section teams entered, Menlo finished second, ahead of St. Francis and Menlo-Atherton and trailing only Sacred Heart Prep, which took fifth.
