After suffering a tough opening loss to Miami Gulliver in the opening round, Women's Water Polo bounced back and reeled off three consecutive victories to claim fifth place in the 13-team St. Andrew's Tournament in Boca Raton. In the opener, DP (4-1) trailed Gulliver by just two after the first quarter but a three goal run to close out the half gave the Raiders all the room they needed in an 11-5 victory. Bailey Valdes (two goals, two assists, two steals), Maddie Magrino (two goals, two steals) and Julia James (goal, five steals) topped the stat columns while Peyton Haines finished with four saves and an assist in goal. Game two saw the Panthers go toe to toe with Boca Raton and after three quarters of play with the game tied at 6-6, Sarah Demsky punched in the game-winning goal to give DP a much-needed 7-6 victory. Julia James scored four goals  along with two assists and three steals while Demsky finished with two goals. Maddie Magrino scored a goal, assisted on five more and picked up four steals. Freshman Samantha Horency collected four saves in the second half. In the Friday nightcap, the ladies jumped all over Boone with seven unanswered goals in the first half before coasting to a 10-1 victory. Maddie Magrino scored four goals, assisted on two more and gathered a team-high seven steals. Bailey Valdes picked up three goals, Sarah Demsky added two goals and Julia James finished the night with a goal, three assists and four steals. Peyton Haines turned away four shots in the cage during the first half, added an assist and a steal, while in the second half, Samantha Horency stopped two shots, assisted on a goal and tallied three steals. In the fifth place game early Saturday morning, DP was nothing but consistent, scoring two goals each period in an 8-6 victory over South Broward. Maddie Magrino scored four goals with three assists and a pair of steals, Baily Valdes scored twice with a steal, Caroline Grzeszczak added a solo goal and two steals, Emma Hallson scored a goal and assisted on another and Julia James stood out on the defensive end with a team-high six steals. Peyton Haines and Samantha Horency teamed up for nine saves on the day. The Panthers will be back home Wednesday against Wekiva.
