CMS Men's Water Polo dominates Cal Tech
Post Game Recap by Drew Beckerman
The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Stags defeated the CalTech Beavers 18-5 to improve to 10-9 on the season and an undefeated 3-0 in conference play.
The Stags opened the game up strong, as they scored a goal on all three of their opening possessions to take a quick 3-0 lead. However, the Beavers refused to let down and ended up trading goals with CMS until the score was 6-4 in the middle of the 2nd quarter. From this point on, CMS goalie Will Ferenc would play lights out. Ferenc would only let up one more goal in the game (on a penalty shot nonetheless) as he would compile 10 saves, many of which in brilliant fashion. The offense would support Ferenc magnificently, as CMS would outscore CalTech 12-1 over the final two-and-a-half quarters as they cruised to an 18-5 victory.
The CMS offense was a very well-rounded attack, as 11 different players were able to put the ball in the back of the net. The Stags were led by Ari Wes who tallied 3 goals, followed by Michael Lee, John Holland, Vincent Schiavoni, Jenson Tuomi, and McClatchy Ruskin all registering two goals, while Maarten Lefor, Huston Middlesworth, Daniel Polyakov, Josh Thomasson, and Greg Mann all adding a goal of their own. Huston Middlesworth did a great job distributing the ball as he assisted on four goals, while Brian Baier and Brian Downs both totaled three assists each. For the next two weeks, the Stags will hit the road to face Redlands, Cal Lutheran, and La Verne in three conference matches, but will be home again on November 5th to play Occidental.
In this game, one team is aspiring to defend its SCIAC title, while the another is striving towards it.
