The Enumclaw High boys water polo team played six road games and finished with a 2-4 record.

The week opened at Auburn Sept. 20 when the Hornets were stunned by Auburn Mountainview 9-2. The loss gave EHS a 1-2 league record, 4-6 overall. Hornets Bennon VanHoof and Thomas Petersen each scored a goal.

It didn’t get better Thursday as the Hornets were shelled 20-7 by defending state champion Curtis in Tacoma. VanHoof led EHS scorers with four goals. Petersen, Gabe Sales and Seth Rickard each added a goal.

Friday, the Hornets opened play in the Auburn tournament with a 13-9 loss to Rogers. VanHoof again led EHS in scoring with five. Petersen added two more and Mason Culp and Shay Larsen each scored a goal.

In Game 2 Friday, EHS lost 13-5 to sixth-ranked Bainbridge Island. VanHoof scored three and Culp and Sales scored one each.

Saturday brightened as the Hornets won two games at the tournament, starting with an 11-4 victory over Emerald Ridge. VanHoof fired in seven goals in the win. Larsen added two and Culp and Will Cooper each tossed in one.

EHS’s second victory was a 17-9 decision over Peninsula. VanHoof led the Hornets in scoring with eight. Sales scored three, while Riley Sexton, Carson Lanphere, Larsen, Petersen, Cooper and Culp each added a goal.

The EHS schedule this week is uncertain. Stadium may not be available due to scheduling issues and Auburn is not fielding a team this season. Updated schedules will be available on the team’s web site, at http://enumclawpolo.blogspot.com/.
