In their continuing quest to do what Cal football seeming can’t, Cal men’s water polo beat USC again. This time they won the National Championship! Glory be to our fish!
I don’t know all that much about water polo, but I know enough to see that this was a fairly exciting game. Cal was down 4-2 at half and then roared back to go up 6-4 with just a few minutes remaining. USC gets the 5th goal and then horrifically ties it up with only 2 seconds left. Overtime for our valiant fish?
For with a mere 2 seconds left, Cal made a desperation strike at the goal. The ball bounced off of the outstretched hands of a Trojan defender to score the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP WINNING GOAL. Truly an exciting game.
Now, if only we could beat USC 7-6 for the National Championship in football. Congratulations to the Cal Water Polo team.
