Moving up to the Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division this year, the Woodside High School varsity boys water polo team, led by new coach Peter Davis, finished the Saint Francis Acalanes Varsity Invitational on Sept. 26 at Los Gatos High School with two wins and two losses.

Fielding a team of just nine to 10 players during the games, Woodside showed strong effort, determination, and teamwork to finish in seventh place out of 16 teams in Flight B of the invitational.

Sophomore Giorgio Fatica paced the Wildcats (7-3) with 15 goals, along with teammates junior Max Untrecht adding 9 goals, senior Oliver Mancebo scoring 6 goals, senior Leo Franco-Munoz contributing 5 goals, senior Brian Wheaton making 3 goals in the last 2 games, and seniors Alexander Ochoa and Thomas Goldberg each with 1 goal.

Goalie senior Eric Helseth defended the Wildcats with 9 saves against Heritage and Aptos during the first two games of the invitational. On day 2, Helseth and junior Stefan Buhr made 17 saves against Serra and Logan during the final two matches to wrap up the games.

The two-day Saint Francis Acalanes Varsity Invitational was played at Campolindo High School on Sept. 25 and Los Gatos High School on Sept. 26.
