Wednesday: Woodside-Menlo showdown in boys water polo


By Woodside Athletics

The Woodside Wildcats varsity boys water polo team will plays its last regular-season game Wednesday, Oct. 28, against the Menlo Knights in a match where two brothers will face each other for the first time.

The Wildcats' junior Max Untrecht will challenge the Knights' freshman Sam Untrecht in a game that will determine the outcome of the PAL Bay division.

The Wildcats are 4-1 and tied for second place with Menlo-Atherton in the division, while the Knights are undefeated with a 5-0 record.

A win by Woodside would bring the season to a close with the Wildcats and Knights tied for top spot, while a win from Menlo would clinch the season for the Knights going into the PAL Tournament in November.

The teams will play at Menlo School on Wednesday, October 28, starting at 4 p.m.

I'm predicting Woodside upsets Menlo here, 5-4. I know this is a stretch but I could see Menlo letting down. They've already beaten everyone in the league and beat the other second place team, Menlo Atherton, by 3 goals. With brothers playing each other and it being near the end of the season, everything is in place for an upset like this. Great that the league has scheduled these 2 top teams for the final game of the regular season as it is a true Championship Game!
