IRVINE — The Corona del Mar High and Foothill girls' water polo teams both have bright futures.
Of the 14 starters in the water for Wednesday night's CIF Southern Section Division I semifinal, 11 will return next year.
But, on this night at Woollett Aquatics Center, the Knights' only senior starter still came up huge.
Lefty Kelli Boling gave her team a chance to win the game, scoring a rebound power-play goal with 55 seconds left in regulation to send the game into overtime.
The seventh-seeded Knights didn't blow their opportunity for a second straight upset.
Junior Jessie Porter scored from seven meters with 1:40 left in the second overtime period as Foothill stunned No. 3-seeded Corona del Mar, 10-9, ending the Sea Kings' season.
"We caught some breaks with balls getting deflected in, and we got a rebound," Foothill Coach Jeff Colton said. "We just caught a few breaks this game and they didn't get them. I think when you have two teams that are really close, sometimes it just comes down to that. [It's] the saying, 'Better to be lucky than good.' But they're a really good team."
