Prep Roundup: San Luis Obispo girls water polo gets 5 goals from Waddell, improves to 6-1 in the PAC 7

Elizabeth Waddell scored five goals for the San Luis Obispo High girls water polo team on Thursday in a 13-10 win over Atascadero.

The Tigers (12-7, 6-1 PAC 7) were able to shut down the Greyhounds’ offense for most of the game, only allowing five goals until the fourth quarter.

That allowed them to build a 7-3 halftime lead and an 11-5 advantage going into the final period.

Kennedy Peters scored three times for the Tigers, and both Eva Bakker and Elizabeth Culpepper put in two apiece.

Zoe Berkowitz had five saves in goal for the Tigers.


Santa Ynez 2, Nipomo 1

The Pirates scored twice early, causing the Titans (7-10-2, 3-4 Los Padres League) to play catchup the rest of the way.

The Titans scored in the 34th minute off of a corner kick from Eric Pulido to Chris Montero.

“We started out really flat,” Nipomo coach Billy Vinnedge said. “After our goal, and in the second half, we played much better, but just couldn’t get the equalizer.”

Juan Rodriguez had nine saves in goal for Nipomo.

Coast Union 1, Templeton 0

The Broncos continued to roll.

Victor Casas, assisted by Oscar Catalan, scored the game’s only goal in the 27th minute.

Juan Leonardo had two saves in goal for Coast Union.


Cabrillo 4, Morro Bay 0

The Conquistadores (9-6-4, 6-1 LPL) scored two quick goals in the 46th and 50th minutes to put the game away against Morro Bay (5-9-2, 3-4 LPL).

Cabrillo scored its first goal in the 25th minute and its last with time expiring around the 80th.

Santa Ynez 3, Nipomo 1

The Titans (4-12-1, 2-5 LPL) took a 28th-minute, 1-0 lead on a goal by Cristina Ozzimo assisted by Kaitlyne Fernandez, but weren’t able to sustain the offense in the loss.

In the 39th and 40th minutes Santa Ynez was able to score on free kicks of 18 and 20 feet. The Pirates’ other goal came in the 66th minute.
