Harbor senior wins it

October 10, 2007

NEWPORT BEACH — Senior Colin McKibbin scored two dramatic goals to lead the Newport Harbor High boys’ water polo team to a victory in a marathon game against Northwood Tuesday.

McKibbin scored with a second left in regulation to tie the score, then added the game-winning goal 1:54 into the second sudden-death overtime of the Sailors’ 8-7 nonleague victory at Newport Harbor High.

Newport Harbor (14-2), the top-ranked team in the CIF Southern Section Division I coaches’ poll, had to come back after Travis Noll’s penalty shot with nine seconds left in regulation gave Northwood (6-7), ranked No. 4 in Division I, a 6-5 lead.

Coach Jason Lynch’s Newport Harbor squad plays host to Fountain Valley today at 5 p.m. in a Sunset League game.
