OCVARSITY.COM

Marko Asic scored with 13 seconds left to help lift Dana Hills’ boys water polo team past host San Clemente, 10-9, Thursday for the outright South Coast League championship.

Dana Hills claimed its first South Coast title in a race that included El Toro since 1978.

The Dolphins (21-7, 7-1) also captured South Coast League crowns in 2007 and 2008 but El Toro resided then in the Sea View League.

Asic scored a team-high three goals but Brandon Carman, Brett Cleary and Spencer Likins each added two goals apiece for the Dolphins.

Dana Hills goalie Brody Zachary, who replaced injured starter Matt Bridges near mid-season, racked up 15 saves.

Robby Stiefel stayed hot by scoring five goals for San Clemente (16-11, 4-4), which finished third in the Division 1 league.

El Toro (19-8, 6-2) placed second.

In the Sea View League:

Tesoro 10, Mission Viejo 9 (OT): The host Titans (20-8, 7-1) earned a share of the league title after rallying from a 7-4 deficit entering the fourth period.

Tesoro's Brad Miller scored with three seconds left in regulation to tie the score, 8-8, and force overtime.

Center Hunter Johnson scored the winning goal in overtime with 21 seconds left. The Titans’ Taylor Peterson also scored with 1:12 left in overtime.

Christian Macias scored six goals for the Diablos (20-9, 7-1).

Tesoro and Mission Viejo will be teams to watch in Division 3.

In the Empire League:

Cypress 5, Valencia 2: Dennis Hyon scored three goals and Bryce Mattson made 10 saves as the visiting Centurions forced a three-way tie for the league title with the Tigers and Yorba Linda.

The championship is a first for Yorba Linda.

Cypress won a coin-flip for the top playoff seed from the Division 7 league. Valencia is second, followed by Yorba Linda.
