Men’s water polo team takes South Coast Conference opener

“I feel that we played very good. We gave them no mercy and we didn’t stop.” Men’s water polo goalie Joseph Owens said after the team’s 17-6 win over Chaffey College, Wednesday, Sept. 18.

“I thought our defense was pretty good. We held (Chaffey); had a few goals in the second half,” head coach Joe Abing said.

Despite a slight resurgence in the second half, the Chaffey Panthers ended up falling off the scoreboards.

Despite the dominant win, coach Abing still feels that there’s need for improvement, as he said, “Always. We’re always trying to get better; like turnovers, we need to do a better job of eliminating. We need to get in better shape.”

After doing his end of keeping the oppositions score at a minimum, Owens feels that the only thing they need to work on as a team is to learn to communicate a little better.

He also felt that maybe some of the referee’s penalty calls could have gone the team’s way as well.

“We didn’t expect anything less or anything more. Just come in with intensity and that’s what happens when you play as hard as you can,” said Owens.

Two-meter offensive player Michael Hanna felt this was one of the better games of the season.

“One of the best. I mean, I wouldn’t say it was the hardest competition we had, but I feel as a team collectively we just clicked, I guess. I don’t know if it’s because it’s our first home game, (but) we all clicked.”

This was the biggest points differential for the Falcons since their Sept. 6 victory over Salem International University at the Navy open with a 19-8 ending.
