The La Jolla High School Vikings fell 6-8 against The Bishop’s School Knights at the boys varsity water polo game 3 p.m. Oct. 5. Bishop’s coach Jim Fales led the team to its sixth victory this season.

The Vikings’ loss, said Coach Tom Atwell, split the team’s season so far with two wins and two losses.

The two schools are top rivals because one of them usually plays in the California Interscholastic Federation Championships.

Up next, the La Jolla High School Varsity Water Polo boys will take on Coronado High School 3 p.m. Oct. 12 and Sante Fe Christian at 3 p.m. Oct. 16, both at the Coggen Aquatics Complex, 750 Nautilus St., La Jolla.

Bishop’s Knights play their next two games at home, 7607 La Jolla Blvd., against Cathedral Catholic High, 3 p.m. Oct. 13 and then against the Vikings again at 3 p.m. Oct. 17, to continue the rivalry.

A throw by La Jolla High School’s Duker Becker (No. 6) goes over the head of Bishop’s Steven Tifft (No. 16).

The Bishop’s School defenders work to protect the goal.
