The Pacifica High School boys’ water polo team won its first-ever CIF-SS title on Saturday, capturing the Division 6 crown with a 9-8 win over Buena Park at Woolett Aquatics Center in Irvine.

Justin Krause scored the game winner just before regulation time ended to give the M’s the win

With the victory, the M’s finished the season 25-4. The Coyotes finished with a 19-11 mark. Pacifica built an 8-5 lead, but had to hold off a strong BP rally, helped by a shot block by Trenton Toma in the closing seconds. The Mariners are also champs of Empire League.
