Spartans sneak to 13-10 win against Newport in water polo

BAINBRIDGE – A 13-10 score earned a win for the Spartans at their last home match for a while; a splashy, slippery struggle against the visitors from Newport Thursday, Oct. 12.

The win advanced the team’s overall season record to 11-1.

Spartan senior Sam Chapman and freshman phenom Gabe Nathan threw in four goals apiece.

Miles Hogger managed two, and Thomas Defawe, Max Eyrich and David Burton each netted one.

Prior to the big win, the BHS JV squad likewise bested Newport, 15-4.

In that match, Daniel DeFoe scored five goals; Ian O’Hartigan and Oliver Mortell, three; Guy Wiebel, two; and Nathaniel Lapin, one.

The Spartans next hit the road for the Curtis tourney over the weekend before facing off against Gig Harbor Tuesday.

They will next play at home at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25 against Wilson.
