Home field advantage didn?t help the Spartans Monday. Though the La Cañada 18-and-under water polo club led at the half at LCHS? pool, Rose Bowl Aquatics scored four unanswered goals late in the fourth quarter and sailed on to win the match, 13-9. Despite the loss, the team was on the same page. Josh Renfro led the team with four goals while Frank Hwang had two scores and an assist and Tim Perry added a couple as well. Taylor Roszkos was in net for the Spartans and made a couple of fantastic saves, managing to put up a solid effort, regardless of the score.
