The Sacred Heart Prep boys' water polo team advanced to the finals of the Central Coast Section Division II playoffs with a relatively easy 16-9 swamping of St. Ignatius on Tuesday night at Monta Vista High. The top-seeded Gators (23-6) grabbed a 14-0 halftime lead against the No. 4-seeded Wildcats (11-14) before subbing liberally in the second half. Junior Philip Bamberg and senior David Culpan each scored four goals for the Gators, who will play for a third-straight CCS title on Saturday at Santa Clara University.
The Gators will face No. 2 Menlo in Saturday's championship game (11:30 a.m.) at Santa Clara University in a rematch of last season's finale won by SHP.
