Dos Pueblos Overtakes Santa Barbara in Third Period, Wins 8-4

Dos Pueblos scored four goals in the third period to pull away from a stubborn Santa Barbara High girls water polo team in a Channel League match on Tuesday.

The Dons played solid defense in the first half and led 4-3 at halftime.

"I am very proud of the girls for playing a very good team even for three of the quarters," said Santa Barbara coach Mark Walsh.

The Dons got goals from Grace Raisin Abigail Hendrix, Kai McGeoy and Jordan Duggan. Raisin and Hendrix each drew two ejections.

Dos Pueblos got a strong game out of Grace Heck. She had three goals, two assists, three steals and a blocked shot. Ryann Neushul and Abbi Hill each scored two goals and Ton Shackelford had a goal and an assist.

The Chargers scored four goals in the third period, with three of them coming in the last two minutes of the period.

"We got a little tired and were not able to keep for those two critical minutes," said Walsh.

Santa Barbara is 12-10 overall and 3-4 in league, while Dos Pueblos improves to 17-5, 6-1. Both teams are at the So Cal Championships in Orange County beginning Thursday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
