Splashing into playoffs
The Cardinal Newman boys water polo team, co-champion of the Vine Valley Athletic League with the Vintage Crushers, is heading into the postseason riding an eight-game win streak and a body of work good enough for the No. 3 seed and first-round bye in the Division 2 North Coast Section playoffs.
The Cardinals beat the American Canyon Wolves 17-0 in their last regular game of the season Friday behind senior Justin Brown’s four goals. The team hasn’t dropped a game since falling 10-7 at home to Vintage on Oct. 4 and has scored 321 goals this season, allowing 140.
