4/5/2013 12:38:00 AM

With the District Tournament just two weeks away, the battle for the top seed between Boone and Dr. Phillips went to the Panthers in both contests. Women's Water Polo shook off the rust from an extended break and scored three unanswered goals in the fourth quarter to win going away, 8-4, on Senior Night. DP trailed at the half, 3-2, but sophomore Jillian Goulden found the back of the net twice and senior Heather MacNeil added a penalty shot goal to give the Panthers a 5-3 lead heading into the final period. After Boone pulled within a goal, junior Allie Magrino took a perfect pass from senior Meredith Canty and fired a shot that grazed the crossbar and dropped into the net for her second goal of the night. Heather MacNeil gave DP a 7-4 lead on a power play goal off an assist from sophomore Jacqueline James and Meredith Canty iced the game with a dart into the upper right corner for the 8-4 final. MacNeil led all scorers with three goals as well as three steals while Magrino (two goals, two assists, five steals), Goulden (two goals, steal) and Canty (goal, assist) filled out the scoring column. Senior Marissa Goodrum had another solid performance in the cage with 11 saves and an assist. DP (15-5) has now extended its school record winning streak to ten games and will take on Olympia Tuesday night for the Metro West Conference Championship.
