Varsity girls water polo lost to Homestead High School 3-2 in a home game today at 7 p.m.

In the first quarter, Homestead scored the only goal until halfway through the second quarter. Claudia Opris (10) scored the first goal for the Eagles in the second quarter.

The Mustangs were in the lead at 2-1 at the end of the second quarter but Harker held their opponents scoreless in the third quarter, and attempted a comeback in the fourth quarter behind a goal scored by Alicia Xu (9).

Although the girls lost today’s game, freshman Grace Hajjar noticed strengths and potential improvements regarding the girls’ play today.

“Our offense should have been a little stronger,” Grace said. “Our defense was good, but we should have shot more and scored more goals.”

Sarah Gonzales (12) agreed that the team’s defense was strong and that the offense could use some improvement, as well as adding more about teamwork.

“I think, during the game, we did a really good job of communicating with each other and working well on defense to make sure they didn’t score that many,” she said. “I think we could have taken some better shots, and on offense, actually looked and seen who was open.”

The varsity girls water polo team play against Monta Vista at home on Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
