SANTA ANA — The chant at the end of the quarter break is not unfamiliar for the CdM Aquatics 18-and-under girls' team.
It's the same as the one the Sea Kings use during the high school season. Senior-to-be Pippa Saunders instructs her teammates to yell "Corona win!" on the count of three.
Fellow senior-to-be Alex Musselman counts to three before the whole team yells it, "Corona win!"
But in terms of saves, the goalie Musselman definitely didn't stop at three Saturday afternoon at Foothill High.
The UCLA commit made a staggering 39 saves in CdM's two games at the USA Water Polo Junior Olympics. She had 21 saves in a 10-6 loss to San Diego Shores "A," then came back with 18 saves as CdM edged Davis, 8-7.
The latter win means ninth-seeded CdM will indeed play for ninth place in the platinum division Sunday. CdM will play Walnut Creek-based 680 Drivers Red at 1 p.m. at Santa Margarita High.
