Gilman games

Congratulations to the JV Water Polo team for their effort against Gilman yesterday. For the first time this season, the Gaels found themselves down by two goals and had to play from behind, and by the middle of the second quarter the deficit stretched to 1 – 6 on account of a few miscues and some errant shots. From that point on, the Gaels rallied, relying on strong team defense – in the third quarter, the Gaels locked down the Greyhounds so effectively that Gilman didn’t even get off a shot – but the scoring hole was too deep to climb out of, and MSJ fell, 5 – 8. The team faces another tough opponent in Loyola today, and then the Gaels are guaranteed to face Gilman again on Saturday in the MIAA Championship game. Goal scores versus Gilman included Wesley Reising, Brayden Herr, Ed DeMaria and Alexander Chairs.

Congratulations as well to the Varsity Water Polo team for their effort against Gilman. The Gaels hung tough against the top-ranked team in the league and were only down 5 – 7 midway through the second quarter, but ultimately were outmatched 9 – 17. Goals were scored by Jack Gregory, Ryan Morgan, Hunter Smith, Jeremy Luers and Lorenzo Gurri. Matt Emelio and Neil Gulmert joined these players in recording assists.
