Ransom water polo sweeps districts, boys remain unbeaten

Ransom Everglades is trying to start a championship run in water polo and keep another alive this season.

The Raiders’ girls have won three state championships in a row and seven of the past eight.

Ransom’s boys have been spectators for those victories and unable to win their own.

That could soon change.

The boys are undefeated and improved to 27-0 for the season after securing a crucial 12-8 home victory over two-time reigning state champion Belen Jesuit on Tuesday night in the District 15 final.

It was the first time Ransom’s boys won a district crown since 2008 – the last time they won a state championship.

“The number one thing is how in sync they are,” Ransom coach Eric Lefebvre said. “No one person thinks they have to be the one to score. They’re constantly looking for each other out there and our offense just flows.”

The Raiders’ girls dispatched Coral Gables, 17-1 in their district championship game to advance to the state play-in round Saturday at Ransom. The Raiders (11-11) will host Hialeah at 10 a.m. and the boys will take on Miami Country Day at 11:30 a.m.

“Our girls are on the cusp, but will it come together,” Lefebvre said. “Hialeah has some great players. We’ve shown flashes of brilliance, but we haven’t put it all together. That’s what we’re looking for on Saturday.”

Ransom’s boys went 26-2 last season with both losses coming against Belen.

The Raiders returned nearly every player from last year’s team and beat Belen (20-5) three times this season.

After going back and forth during an evenly-played first quarter, Ransom took control in the second quarter as Matthew Simko scored two of his game-high four goals. Jordan Gould finished with three and Will Danon had two.

Belen’s Joseph Balerdi finished with three goals and Federico Tamborrel had two as the Wolverines cut the deficit to 8-6 midway through the third quarter. But Ransom goalkeeper Miguel Lamar made a clutch save and shortly after Danon and Gould scored to spark a run of four consecutive goals that put the game out of reach.

“There was one team in our way last year,” Lefebvre said. “There’s a rivalry there and more emotion than other games so it’s a great way to get us ready to state to win a game like this.”
