Here's what I've heard regarding the schedules for the Division 1 girls water polo quarterfinals Friday:
Upper bracket -- Edison is hoping to play host to Dos Pueblos at Ocean View at 5 p.m. Laguna Beach plays host to Newport Harbor at 4:15 p.m.
Lower bracket -- There's talk of a doubleheader at CdM. The Sea Queens would play host to Santa Barbara and Los Al-Foothill would join the card.
I have my eye on the Newport Harbor-Laguna Beach match as the most explosive pairing. The team don't have a ton of history. Both are on a roll. No. 1 in the the county vs. No. 3 in the county. Laguna Beach is super-tough to beat in its own pool. Tricky metal cages, small and crowded deck. Tons of great players and coaching. Should be an awesome match.
