GWP: Dons pull out 5-4 win over Dos Pueblos

Betsy Hendrix gave Santa Barbara High’s girls water polo team its only lead of the game in the fourth period, and the Dons hung on to defeat Dos Pueblos, 5-4, in their final regular season home game on Thursday.

Jessie Brummett tied the score and Hendrix scored the eventual game-winner on a 6-on-5 situation. Hendrix and Jessica Gaffney each scored two goals for the Dons.

DP goalie Britten Vilander played a stellar game. She had saves on four Santa Barbara power plays and blocked a penalty shot.

Santa Barbara won despite turning the ball over 20 times.

Dons coach Mark Walsh praised Erin McGeory for the defensive effort on Stanford-bound Shannon Cleary.
