DP poloists rumble over T.O.

Chase Racich and the Chargers raced passed Thousand Oaks 17-9 on a day that coach Chris Parrish finally got to see his team compete in a big pool. 

After Dos Pueblos’ fourth boys water polo match of the season — the first three were played in small pools — Parrish proclaimed: “Our defense is terrible in small pools!”

Not a problem on Wednesday as Dos Pueblos jumped out to a 5-2 lead after the first quarter in large part due to some defensive steals that led to easy scores in transition. 

The Chargers never looked back from there and extended their lead after each quarter except the second on their way to their fourth win of the season without a loss. 

“Our offense has really been clicking,” said Parrish, who noted that seven of his 10 field players scored goals.

Indeed, DP has scored a whopping 60 goals in those four games. 

Five Chargers had more than one score led by Racich’s six. Ian Kistler recorded a hat trick and Derek Shoemaker, Conner Cleary and Nolan Starczak scored twice apiece. Kevin Cappon and Loren Drewisch got one each. 

Dos Pueblos leaves for the Riverside Poly Tournament today for an opening matchup against El Segundo. The Chargers’ first home tilt is Sept. 30 for the Channel League opener against Ventura.
