Cassidy Miller and Ella Prentice scored overtime goals to give San Marcos a 12-10 girls water polo win over a solid Carlsbad team on Saturday at Santa Barbara High.

The Royals built a 7-2 lead in the first period only to have Carlsbad battle back and tie the score at 9-9 with seven seconds left in the fourth period.

Jordan Neushul, the cousin of former Dos Pueblos water polo stars Kiley, Jamie and Ryan Neushul, scored the game-tying goal for Carlsbad.

UCLA-bound Fiona Kuesis and junior Cassidy Miller each scored three goals, while Prentice, Hannah Meyer and Megan Musick each had two goals for the defending CIF-SS Division 1 champions.

“Carlsbad is very good, and a 7-2 first quarter was not a closed book,” San Marco coach Chuckie Roth said. “Their goalie played well down the stretch and that made for a close game.”

The Royals also played Santa Ynez in a Channel League game on Saturday and rolled to a 13-1 win.

Sara Engmyr, Emma Engmyr and Maddie Sparre led the way with three goals each.

“I am proud of my team and how hard we work. We had a great holiday of training and games,” Roth said. “Now we game prep for Orange Lutheran and Mater Dei, who we will face early In the Tournament of Champions.”

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!
