The Enumclaw High boys water polo team split a pair of league games, losing to Wilson 20-16 Sept. 13 at home and topping Kentridge 13-10 in Covington Thursday.

EHS’s opener with Wilson was a high-scoring affair featuring two of the league’s top shooters. Wilson’s Justice Nichols led all scorers with 10 goals, while EHS’s Bennon VanHoof tossed in nine.

In addition to VanHoof,  five other Hornets scored: Carson Lanphere and Mason Culp, two goals, and Thomas Petersen, Riley Sexton and Bryce VanHoof, one.

Kentridge scored first, but Bennon VanHoof tied the game 30 seconds later and Quinn Warner and Will Cooper scored quickly for the EHS lead.

VanHoof took over, scoring three, for a 6-5 advantage at the half. Kentridge tied the game, but VanHoof, Cooper and Brandon Butler each added a goal. VanHoof added another three in the final period, and Gabe Sales added one.

EHS, 2-2, 1-1 in league, faces state champion Curtis at Mount Tahoma Thursday in a nonleague game, then travels the Auburn tournament, starting Friday with Rogers at 5:30 p.m. and Bainbridge Island at 6:50.
