JSerra's rising boys water polo team took a major step toward qualifying for the CIF Division 1 playoffs by defeating visiting Santa Margarita, 12-9, in a Trinity League match Thursday.

Cole Cervantes, Ciaran Patrick and Cooper Dolan each scored three goals for the Lions (17-3), who improved to 2-0 in league.

Evan Nassar added two goals while goalie Michael La Chapelle made 11 saves.

"Full team effort," Lions coach Paul Cruzan said in a text message.

Last week, JSerra beat Servite, 15-6, in the teams' Trinity League opener.

The Lions can move to 3-0 in league with a victory next week at St. John Bosco. They close against Mater Dei and Orange Lutheran.

Chase Petersen scored five goals for the Eagles.
