“It’s our last tournament, we just have to execute our game plan,” said Coach Marcias, and the team did.

Winning two of its three matches, the team did what it had to do and executed like coach Marcias said.

The Falcons’ two wins came from Passenda City, with the final score being 4-2, and Chaffey, with the final score being 9-8.

The women felt pretty confident about playing Passenda because they have beaten them before.

Attacker Jenney Para said, “We’ve been practicing extra on our communication and we have been working on our defense a lot as well.”

Para had two goals in the women’s only loss to Mt. San Antonio College, final score being 4-16, and had six steals on Sunday, Nov 7 against Chaffey College.

She also said the reason why her team hasn’t produced the season they wanted had a lot to do with them being new, “We’re all new players and haven’t played with each other for long yet.”

Attacker Lucila Davies said the team was going to try something new against Passenda,”They are good at counter attacks and we lack on that, so we tried something different and tried having a different set-up.”

Marcias believed that the women’s season was kind of like the game against East Los Angeles College, which they won 11-4.

He said, “Well that game summarizes our season, our first half was great, second we played complacent and played down to our opponents level.”

The women’s water polo team took third place at the South Coast Conference Tournament, which is its last tournament and game for the 2015 season.

As of now the team’s record is 10-16 overall and in its conference it is 6-4.
