GWP: Royals beaten by fourth-ranked Corona del Mar

Paige Haushchild scored three goals and goalie Jenna Phreana made 10 saves for San Marcos in a 9-4 non-league girls water polo loss at CIF Division 1 fourth-ranked Corona del Mar on Saturday.

The sixth-ranked Royals challenged themselves over the weekend, playing No. 1 Laguna Beach on Friday and Corona del Mar.

Coach Chuckie Roth said he was pleased how his team competed from start to finish against the Sea Queens.

“We played well,” he said. “We need to address our 6-on-5 attack. We went 0-for-7; we need to put our shots in the cage.”

San Marcos faces a huge Channel League game on Tuesday at Dos Pueblos. The Royals are unbeaten in league while DP has one loss.
