Greenwich water polo picks up three more wins in Pennsylvania

Despite the 10 inches of rain that flooded much of the Pennsylvania Valley area, Cumberland Valley High School was still able to hold its annual Screamin’ Eagle Tournament, and the Greenwich High School water polo team couldn’t have been happier.

Big Red left Pennsylvania with three more victories and improved its overall record to 21-0. 

The Cardinals started off against its toughest opponent, North Allegheny High School from the Pittsburgh area. After a tight opening quarter that ended tied at 1-1, the Cardinals slowly opened up a three goal lead, as the half ended with Greenwich on top 6-3.

The lead grew to five in the fourth period and the game ended with GHS on top, 11-7. Julian Fraser led the attack with four goals, while Tyler Triscari, Ed Moss and Ben Wurst each scored twice. Jack Robinson added one goal for Big Red. Steven Michaud had a outstanding game in goal, making eight saves and blocking a penalty shot.

The Cardinals followed with a surprisingly easy win over Cathedral Prep of Erie, Penn., 15-1. Once again, Triscari had a stellar outing, picking up the hat trick, with Robinson, Fraser, Moss & Wurst each adding a pair of goals. Sam Bass, Nick Hyden and Jack Kerwin each scored once.

Under little pressure in goal, Alex Jahns had just three saves, while adding a pair of assists on his outlet passes.

In the evening closer against hosting Cumberland Valley, the Cardinals kept extending its two-goal first period lead to eight, with a final score of 15-7. Leading the counterattack, Triscari hit for five goals. Hyden had a hat trick, Robinson had a pair of goals, and Fraser, Moss, Tyler Swift, Alex Zim and Darius Asgari each had one.

Splitting time in the goal, Michaud made four first half saves, while Jahns made five saves in the second.
