Prep Roundup: Nov. 7

The Gilroy boys water polo team lives to see another day.
The Mustangs topped Everett Alvarez 13-7 at home Wednesday in the Monterey Bay League double-elimination consolation bracket. 
Stats from this game were not available.
The win keeps the Mustangs season alive and they will play at 4 p.m. at San Lorenzo Valley today. 
It was a different story for the girls team, however, who lost 12-4 to Harbor in consolation bracket play Wednesday at home. The loss meant it was the end of the road for Gilroy, who finish the season 1-13 overall.
“Even though the girls season ended tonight, I’m very proud of each and every girls’ commitment and growth this year,” coach Fred Latimore said via email. “I will miss our seniors dearly. I look forward to the potential of our girl’s program moving forward and hope all of our underclassman [sic] will come back and be a part of the team next year.”
Cougars shutdown Eagles
After dropping a close contest to Scotts Valley the night before, the Christopher girls water polo team wasn’t about to let that happen again.
The Cougars topped Everett Alvarez 21-2 Wednesday at Gilroy High School.
Natalie Garcia led all scoring with four goals in the game followed by Bella Marquez with three. Marquez was named the MVP of the game for not only her hat tick, but because she blocked 12 for the 14 shots on goal she faced.
Hannah Marquez, Shannon McAvoy, Ashley Shuster, Malaya Santos and Kiana Ruybal each added two goals. Ruybal also was a perfect 8 for 8 in the cage, blocking 100 percent of the shots against her.
Sabrina Seery, Carolina Garcia, Amanda Sifuentes and Vangie McNamara all had a goal a piece.
The win puts Christopher in a position to finish fifth in league, a title they can claim with a win over Harbor in the MBL consolation bracket. 
The two teams will square off at 5 p.m. today at Gilroy High School.
FIELD HOCKEY
St. Francis tops Gilroy

Things very easily could’ve gone the other way for the Gilroy field hockey team, but odd-man rushes and quick transitions stopped that from happening.
 
The Mustangs fell 5-1 to St. Francis on the road Wednesday.
 
Gilroy had three shots that hit the post and landed outside the goal, which would’ve made it a different game. But as they say in field hockey, they were just a little ‘unlucky’. 
 
“We played our hearts out; we played as a team and we played to the end,” GHS coach Adam Gemar said. “In saying that, our coaching staff was very proud of the way Gilroy played last night.”
 
Gilroy (11-2-3 overall, 8-2-3 in league) currently sits at No. 3 in the Mount Hamilton A-League, just behind St. Francis (No. 2) and Archbishop Mitty (No.1). 
 
Mitty and St. Francis will square off Friday which, depending on the outcome, could shift the balance in power atop the league. Gilroy will play its regular season finale at 3:30 p.m. Friday at Leland.
 
Cougars edge York
 
Christopher is making every last game count.
 
The Cougars, who were coming off a tie with Notre Dame, were able to edge York 2-1 at home Wednesday. 
 
Stats from this game were not yet available.
 
Christopher — 12-1-4 overall, 10-2-1 in the Mount Hamilton B-League — has just one regular season contest left. It will take on Monterey at 3:30 p.m. Friday at home.
