Mountainview beats Enumclaw for the second time; Hornets record at 7-2

The Auburn Mountainview Lions beat the Enumclaw High School Girls Water Polo Team for the second time in a week, taking the top spot from the Hornets in the Eastern Division of the South Sound Girls Water Polo League.

The game was a defensive struggle, with neither team showing off their best offense. Enumclaw scored first, after over six minutes of scoreless play in the first quarter, on a goal by Tianna Hogan. Mountainview tied it up 1-1 with 1:48 left in the first half, on a goal by Laura Caudill.

After the break, Lindsay Bowden scored for the Hornets one minute 48 seconds into the third period, but Mountainview tied the game at two with 1:23 left in the period, on a goal by Raquel Robayo-Krause. The Lions took the lead for good 23 seconds later on a goal by Stephanie Bluhm.

Mountainview scored early in the final frame to take a 4-2 lead, and Enumclaw's Tianna Hogan trimmed the lead with a goal with 31 seconds left in the game, but the Lions were able to run out the clock for the 4-3 victory.

Auburn Mountainview now holds the top spot in the Eastern Division, and are undefeated in league play. The Hornets are in second place, with a 4-2 league record, 7-2 overall.

The Hornets next game is scheduled for Thursday, April 9, when they travel to Sumner for a 3:15 game against the Sumner Spartans. On Friday, April 10 Enumclaw plays host to the non-league rival Puyallup Vikings for a 4:30 game at the Enumclaw Aquatic Center.
