BOYS' WATER POLO

Villa Park Protest Is Denied; Foothill Win Stands

November 05, 2000|MELANIE NEFF

The Foothill boys' water polo team got the news Saturday morning that the Century League title is officially theirs.

After Foothill, ranked sixth in the county, upset No. 2 Villa Park, 9-7, for the title Friday night, Villa Park Coach John Carcich filed a protest over a disputed penalty shot that occurred late in the third quarter.

On Saturday morning the protest went before league principals, who denied it.

The victory gives the Knights the No. 1 playoff berth out of the Century League and could move them into the top four in the Southern Section Division I poll, while dropping the Spartans, who were ranked second in Division I last week.

The Southern Section will announce playoff brackets Monday.
