Haybaler water polo teams beat Watsonville by a combined 35-9

The San Benito boys water polo team took care of host Watsonville on Monday by a comfortable 18-7 margin, and improved to 5-6 overall this year, 3-1 in the Tri-County Athletic League.

Jordan Schafer tied a team-high with three goals in the win, but set up his teammates nine different times.

“He did a real good job,” coach Tom Agan said of Schafer’s nine assists. “It was fun for everybody.”

Thomas Parcell and Ryan Whiteside each had three goals as well, with Matt McCullough, Nick Angulo and Morris Stevens each supplying a pair of scores apiece.

Eric Nicolaysen and Ryan Agan both added goals, and even Kyle Reuther, who’s usually found in the cage, contributed a point for the ‘Balers.

San Benito will play in the Live Oak Polo Fest this weekend, opening at Valley Christian Friday at 2 p.m. The ‘Balers will play two more matches on Saturday, although times and opponents are to be determined.


The San Benito girls water polo team posted a similar score on host Watsonville Monday as they defeated the Wildcatz, 17-2.

“Everyone played, and I think everyone scored,” coach Hayley Vandercook said. “My goalie (Katie Thorpe) even played in the field.”

San Benito is now 3-1 in the TCAL, 9-5 overall.

San Benito will play at Stevenson on Wednesday, Oct. 15, at 3:30 p.m.
