Six Newport-Mesa boys' water polo seniors helped the South squad capture a 14-12 victory in the Orange County All-Star game Sunday at Costa Mesa High.
South team members included Dan Stevens and Curtis Fink of Newport Harbor, Jake Wyatt and Jack Harryman of Corona del Mar, Wyatt Ferris of Costa Mesa and Hayden Swift of Estancia.
Stevens led the way with three goals. Fink had two, and Wyatt, Ferris and Harryman scored one goal each. Harryman's goal, with 50 seconds left in the game, helped preserve the win.
Costa Mesa Coach Justin Taylor coached the South to victory.
Newport Beach resident Jon Walters of Mater Dei led the North team with five goals.
Taylor said the Orange County All-Stars will now compete in a one-day tournament Sunday at Whittier College against all-star teams from Los Angeles County, San Diego County and the Inland Empire. Orange County is scheduled to play games at 10 a.m. and noon, and with two wins would advance to the championship game at 3 p.m.
