After missing the CIF water pollo finals for the first time in 13 season, Bishop’s made it back to the championship game Wednesday night with an 11-4 win against rival La Jolla High.

The Knights (21-8 overall) used their strong defense to shut down the Vikings (23-9) in the semifinal game, although La Jolla led at the end of the first quarter. Bishop’s was led by seniors Matt Michalko (three goals) and David Higginson (three goals) on offense.

During the game, the Knights took control when they scored six straight goals.

Up next for Bishop’s is a showdown Saturday night at Coggan Pool against familiar foe Coronado, which beat Cathedral Catholic 11-10 in overtime to advance. The Knights beat the Islanders (15-12) twice this season in league play.
