CORONA DEL MAR - "Ro-bert! Ro-bert!" Corona del Mar High students used the chant a couple of different times Saturday night in the Battle of the Bay boys' water polo match. Newport Harbor Coach Robert Lynn said he didn't mind it. "They were antagonistic, which is good," Lynn said. "That's fine. That's what crowds should be like. " But the heel for the host Sea Kings turned out to be an emerging player for Newport Harbor. Ryan Warde scored his game-high fourth goal on a power play with eight seconds remaining, helping the Sailors hold on and take the rivalry match, 9-7, on Saturday night at CdM.
