The Vikings men’s water polo team closed out its regular-season with 21-0 blowout over visiting El Camino on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at LAC.
LBCC jumped on El Camino early, scoring just 10 seconds into the match and four goals in the opening two minutes of play.
Eleven Vikings scored a goal, led by freshman Giorgio La Rosa who had five of the Vikings’ eight goals in the first quarter. Sophomore Max Taylor chipped in three goals.
The Vikings were the first team this season to shut out El Camino. The defense recorded 26 steals with a team-high four from Taylor and freshman Mark Denison.
“We definitely have a chance to win state, but first we have to focus on Cerritos in the South Coast Conference,” sophomore Frankie Cervantes said.
LBCC finished conference play 6-0 and 18-4 overall as it heads into the South Coast Conference Championship tournament at Cerritos College on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 6-7.
