GLENDORA -- The Orange Coast College men's water polo team kicked off its 2017 season with a solid 3-1 start at last weekend's Mt. San Antonio College Tournament, posting wins over Rio Hondo (20-6), Chaffey (23-8) and Ventura (16-8).
On Friday at co-host Citrus College, Coast made quick work of the Roadrunners in the opener, outscoring RHC 11-1 in the second half en route to the win.
In the afternoon matchup, Coast ripped off the first five goals of the match and led 12-3 at the half, never giving the Panthers a chance to get back into the contest.
After a 14-8 loss on Saturday morning to Citrus, the Pirates wrapped things up with a solid 16-8 win over Ventura. Weinberg was a one-man machine for the OCC Pirates with a match-best nine goals, while Simonti added a pair.
In goal, Gavin Gray played in all four matches and racked up a combined 48 saves in the four contests.
Coast will return to action on Wednesday in an Orange Empire Conference matchup against rival Golden West (at GWC), beginning at 3 p.m.
