Santa Ynez Water Polo Knocks Off Rio Mesa

Henry Allen scored two goals in the last 38 seconds off the third period and started the fourth period with another goal, allowing the Santa Ynez boys water polo team to pull away from Rio Mesa, 16-9,  in a non-league game on Tuesday.

Allen led all scorers with seven goals and Keller Haws had four goals and four steals for the Pirates, who improve to 7-3 on the season.

Rio Mesa cut the deficit to 6-5 and trailed 9-7 in the third before Allen went off.

Clayton Davidson scored two first-period goals, helping Santa Ynez jumped out to a 5-2 lead.

“Our boys came out with a lot of intensity in the first quarter and played well as a team,” coach Jake Kalkowski said. “Communication and a strong team defense were keys to for us.

“This is the first D3 team we have played so it meant a lot to earn the win.”

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!
