Carpinteria High’s girls water polo team opened up a 7-2 lead in the first period and cruised to a 14-4 win over visiting Nordhoff to remain undefeated in the Citrus Coast League.

The Warriors got two goals each from Ainslee Alexander, Natalia Perez and Piper Clayton to get them rolling.

Briana Rodriquez scored two goals in the second quarter to make it a 9-2 game.

Rodriguez, Clayton and Jocelyn Pena finished with three goals apiece to lead Carpinteria’s attack, and goalie Erin Otsuki made 16 saves.

The Warriors (14-4 overall and 6-0 league) host Santa Paula Tuesday at 3:30.  It will be the last regular-season home game for eight seniors.

Senior Jack Schiebler led Laguna Blanca with nine points, six rebounds and three blocked shots. Michael Wang and Charlie Shelton each scored six points and combined for 11 assists.

“Our guys came out really hard in the second half,” said coach Carlos Guerrero. “If a couple shots go down for us in the first half and we stay out of early foul trouble, it’s a different outcome.”
