Mirjam Swanson CRESCENTA VALLEY HIGH -- One brilliant play, with seven seconds left in the match, was sufficient to erase the other 27 minutes, 53 seconds of sloppy, unsatisfactory play by the Crescenta Valley High boys' water polo team in its 12-11 win against La Serna High on Friday in its own pool. The clutch drive began with a mid-pool steal by Jeff Little. The senior faked a shot and passed to David Mulcahey in the corner. Mulcahey presented a quick fake of his own, before drilling the winning shot into the back of the net, in the process sending an increasingly loud crowd into momentary delirium.
