Lodi’s boys water polo team took on a section power on the road and didn’t bring their best game.
The Flames traveled to Carmichael and took on Jesuit, the winner of two of the last four Sac-Joaquin Section Division I titles and lost 17-10. The loss comes against a team Lodi could very well see again in the playoffs and will need to do better according to coach Courtney Porter.
“Defensively we played poorly,” Porter said. “It was their senior night and this was a tough defeat.”
Dominic Hummel led Lodi (14-13) with four goals. Marshall Grim, Colin Porter and Noah Carniglia had two goals apiece for the Flames. Goalie Reiss Mahoney had six saves.
Lodi returns to league action on Monday when the Flames host St.Mary’s at Tokay High.
