Johansen, Sonora move on

Brad Fuller had six goals to lead Johansen to a 10-7 win over Fresno High on Friday at the DeLong Memorial Water Polo Tournament at Johansen High.

Sean Solario scored twice for the Vikings (24-2), who earlier beat Tokay 10-4 and will join Sonora in the semifinals of the elite eight-team A Division. Johansen and Sonora (17-2) are the only local teams in the semifinals.

Johansen and Fresno were tied 7-7 in the third quarter, but the Vikings got three quick goals in the fourth to secure the win.

"The game was pretty close for a while," Fuller said. "We adjusted defensively at halftime and that helped us out. We stepped it up defensively and countered really well."

Fuller and Sean Towers each scored four goals in the win against Tokay.

Johansen will play Marin Catholic today at 9:40 a.m.

In Sonora's first game, Shaun Vitek scored the game-winner in overtime to beat Fairfield 9-8.

The second game proved to be easier as the Wildcats took down Clayton Valley 13-8 as Preston Hough and Justin Andradre each scored three goals.

"Defensively, we took away opportunities and I think that's the reason we were successful," Sonora coach Matt Personius said. "We had pretty balanced scoring. We're excited to play tomorrow."

Sonora will take on No. 2 seed Granite Bay today at 10:30 a.m.

Also in the A Division, Turlock lost 12-3 to Newberg, Ore., and beat Golden Valley 5-2 as Brian Keesey and Zac Young scored twice. Turlock (13-8) plays Modesto High today at 8 a.m. at the Tokay High pool.
