   With the new school year starting up, we are now finally in session for sports in the fall season! Rodriguez boys varsity water polo just had their first preseason scrimmage with the Vintage Crushers. Just like the mascot for Vintage, sadly our boys lost 14-7, getting crushed for their first game of the new season. But don’t let the score get to your head because the boys worked harder than ever!

   In the first half, the mustangs were up 4-0 playing a really well mentally, but towards the second half vintage caught up with 14 goals. The Mustangs had incredible defense with steals from Anthony LiCausi (11), Jonathan Gibson (11) and Ben Trette (11). Some defense involved LiCausi leaping out of the water to end a fast break. LiCausi said, ¨I did better with defense because I would draw back so that when Vintage tried to drive into the goal, I would be right there ready to steal the ball¨. They were doing a really great job pressing on defense and had a strong pace in the first half, but towards the second half, things were getting a little messy with people dragging on defense and losing some speed. LiCausi got 4 steals in the game, helping the team get the offensive advantage. As for offense, they managed to get 7 points on the board from LiCausi, Ben Trette (11), Tre Shipp(12), Ryan Graham(11), and Stevenson Linder (11). The highest shooters were Tre Shipp and Anthony LiCausi, each scoring two. Our goals did their part for the game with our starting goalies, Timmy Sanders (11) and Logan Jankauskas (11). It’s the first game of their preseason, so it’s understandable why it was a little rough. We also had a third goalie get subbed in, Tre Shipp, who usually is a field player playing full game, but this game he tried out being a goalie. Shipp said, “It was a very interesting experience and I think it’s going to be a very exciting season.” Being a field player and goalie is very interesting and probably a hard mix. It’s been confirmed that he will play through it all on his last senior season even though he prefers playing on the field. Their next game is on Tuesday, August 27 against Kennedy High. They all have some high hopes with their game and are focused on a win. They are going to train harder and catch the win.

Let’s Go Mustangs! 

Score: 

Vintage -10

Rodriguez -7
