ARCADIA — On paper, Crescenta Valley High's girls' water polo team faced its archrival, Arcadia, on the road in its Pacific League regular-season finale on Wednesday afternoon.
But in reality, the match proved to be a minor speed bump that served as a showcase of the Falcons' stifling depth and defensive play en route to an easy 16-4 win over the Apaches.
"We try to spread the wealth, we try and call it a seamless transition. That's kind of been our tradition through the year," said Loporchio, who got goals from 11 players in the lopsided win, led by daughter Stephanie Loporchio's game-high four goals. "I'll be honest, from a girls' water polo perspective, [the Falcons] just look at is as another game."
