Laguna Beach Goalie Denies Dos Pueblos Girls Water Polo

Dos Pueblos ran up against arguably the best high school water polo goalie in the country and dropped a 7-5 decision against Laguna Beach in a battle between two of the top girls water polo teams in the CIF-Southern Section on Wednesday at Santa Margarita High.

Thea Walsh, Laguna Beach's Stanford-bound goalie, stopped 14 shots, including three penalty shots, to help the defending Division 1 champions win their 34th straight game.

Walsh made five saves and a key steal in the fourth period to deny the Chargers.

Laguna Beach's Evan Tingler broke a 5-5 tie in the final seconds of the third period, and the Breakers scored the only goal of the fourth period.

Abbi Hill led Dos Pueblos with two goals and Ryann Neushul, Chloe Pena and Olivia Kistler scored one goal apiece.

The Chargers (1-1) begin play in the Villa Park Tournament on Thursday against Cerritos.

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!
