Josh Kendrick scored nine goals in a GHS boys water polo victory over Watsonville on Monday. The Mustangs defeated the Wildcatz 16-11.

Michael Shields tallied four times while Alex Papalias and Garrett Pipkin scored one goal apiece.

The Mustangs couldn’t keep the victory train rolling on Wednesday, however, losing a 16-6 decision to league favorite Salinas.

“Salinas drives hard, they out-drove us in their offensive zone,” GHS head coach Tom Clark said.

“We changed our strategy after the first quarter to a more physical defense.”

Shields posted five gaols and three steals, Alan Lindseth had a goal and a steal and Kendrick grabbed three steals.
