Men's Water Polo 2nd at Supra Tournament
3/11/2018 2:22:00 PM

Men's Water Polo won their first three games of the Ian Supra Memorial Tournament to earn a berth in Saturday's championship match but couldn't dig themselves out of a second quarter deficit as they fell to Olympia, 10-5. DP (14-1) took care of business quickly on day one with easy victories over both University (14-4) and Lake Brantley (18-5) to move into the championship semifinals. Saturday morning, the Panthers faced always-tough Winter Park and held off the Wildcats for a 9-5 victory for their school-record 14th consecutive victory. However, in the championship match, DP fell into a 6-1 hole in the second quarter before clawing their way back to trail by just two, 7-5, heading into the fourth quarter. Olympia took control the rest of the way, though, adding three more on the board to take the trophy. DP had plenty of offense over the weekend as nine different players racked up goals. Max Meisenheimer scored a team-high 15 goals along with seven assists and eight steals. Dan Magrino put eight goals in the cage with a team-high ten assists and ten steals. James Sweet scored seven goals, assisted on six more and collected a team-high 13 steals. Gavin Collins was credited with five goals and three steals while Alex Kaiser (three goals, seven assists, four steals), Colin Bryant (three goals), Collin Haugh (two goals, three assists, steal), Max Collingwood (two goals, steal) and Adrian Britto (goal, two assists, five steals) finished the scoring line. Gabe Madej had a tremendous weekend in goal, stopping 34 shots while assisting on three scores and tallying seven steals. Tuesday night the Panthers will head downtown to face Lake Nona at Lake Highland Prep before flying to Chicago for the Dan Lynch Classic over the weekend.
