LA CRESCENTA — When an undefeated Crescenta Valley High girls' water polo team hosted a winless San Marino squad on Tuesday afternoon, the outcome was predictable.
And, for all intents and purposes, the Falcons got the predicted result, as they throttled the Titans, 14-1, in a nonleague match at Crescenta Valley High.
"We got probably what we thought we'd get out of it," said Falcons Coach Pete Loporchio of the lopsided win that didn't exactly see CV play its best throughout.
Nonetheless, the match's outcome more than supplemented an outstanding start to the season for the Falcons, who are 7-0 and ranked fourth in CIF Southern Section Division V.
"Certainly, when you're 7-0, I don't think you could be any more content with the start of the season," said Loporchio, whose team is coming off a season in which it won the Pacific League title and advanced to the CIF Division IV quarterfinals. "We're just looking at the big picture, which is defending our league title and going far in CIF. So in terms of where we're progressing, I think we're very happy."
