After a dominant performance between the pipes for the No. 2 USC women’s water polo team over the weekend, junior goalie Victória Chamorro was named MPSF Player of the Week for the first time in her career.The Rio de Janeiro, Brazil native was locked in on defense down in La Jolla, Calif. at the Triton Invitational, recording 19 saves in just two games. Her standout performance in the championship match against No. 5 Arizona State included 12 saves, which helped USC (14-0) secure its fourth consecutive Triton Invitational crown.In Saturday’s game against No. 17 San Diego State, Chamorro stopped seven shots in just three periods of work and allowed only two goals to lead USC to a 17-4 victory over the Aztecs.USC came away unscathed in pool play, and after a win in the semifinals of the tournament against No. 6 Michigan, Chamorro would once again man the cage for USC against MPSF rival Arizona State. After giving up one goal early in the first frame, she silenced the Sun Devils in the second and fourth periods and allowed just one more goal en route to the 12-2 win in the title match. Chamorro’s strength and quickness bothered Arizona State the entire evening, as she tallied a couple of key steals and finished with 12 stops in goal. In total, she allowed just four goals over the weekend.The 2016 Rio Olympian leads USC with a 2.48 goals allowed per game average, only letting 13 goals get past her so far this season. In 21 total periods of work, she has recorded 55 saves for a 10.48 saves per game average and leads a stingy USC defense that allows just 3.36 goals per game, compared to the team’s 18.5 goals per game scoring average.The junior is also ranked No. 6 all-time in the USC record books for career saves. In her freshman season, her 207 saves were the most ever recorded by a first-year goalie at USC and the ninth most in program history. For her efforts in 2015, Chamorro was named to the MPSF All-Newcomer Team and earned All-American Honorable Mention status.As a sophomore last season, she helped USC capture the program’s fifth national championship with a 6.7 saves per game average.Chamorro and the Trojans will now head down to Irvine, Calif., to take part in the 2017 UCI Invitational. Action begins on Feb. 24 and will conclude Feb. 26 at the Anteater Aquatics Center.

Conor McVeigh fields a high ballDonegal Senior Hurling ChampionshipSt. Eunan’s 1-8Burt 1-5 St. Eunan’s scored a second victory in this year’s Donegal senior hurling championship with a hard fought win over holders Burt in O’Donnell Park on Saturday.With both sides coming into the game unbeaten their clash was eagerly anticipated. Unfortunately, the stormy conditions put paid to any prospects of entertaining hurling. Playing with the wind in the first half, Burt opened the scoring with a long range point in the first minute from Christopher McDermott.This proved to be the last score from play in the half. Defences were well on top throughout, with Martin McGrath and Kyle McGrath outstanding for Burt and Francis Lennon and Conor O’Donnell prominent for the hosts.Both sets of players pressured each other throughout, forcing a series of wides and turnovers of possession. Burt’s Ronan McDermott and Colm Breathnach for St. Eunan’s exchanged early frees. McDermott extended the visitors’ lead to three points with two further strikes in the 12th and 17th minutes. Breathnach pointed after 21 minutes, followed by an immediate reply from McDermott. The final score of the first period was a third Breathnach strike on 26 minutes after strong play from Gearóid Leahy won a free.Just before half-time Enda McDermott broke through on goal for Burt but was denied by a last ditch hook from Conor O’Donnell and a fine save from James Connors. The away team took a two point lead into the break, 0-5 to 0-3.St. Eunan’s wasted no time in using the wind advantage. An early Breathnach free closed the gap. Seán McVeigh began dominating the midfield area and he scored a superb point from the wing to level affairs.Burt goalkeeper Paul Burns pulled off a top class save from a Leahy shot, and only great defending by Ciaran Dowds denied Stephen Doherty a certain goal for St. Eunan’s.The home team seemed to have struck a decisive blow in the 42nd minute when Breathnach fired a penalty to the roof of the net. However, Burt fought back and they equalised with ten minutes left when Micky McCann finished a loose ball to the net after a goalmouth scramble. The next score would prove vital. Both sides missed opportunities. Burt came close when a Christopher McDermott shot rebounded off an upright to safety. Three minutes remained when Breathnach pointed a free from fifty metres. The home team sealed the win with a close range point by Seán McVeigh and a fine strike from midfielder Colm Flood at the end of a run through the Burt defence.St. Eunan’s: James Connors, Shane O’Connor, Eunan O’Donnell, Francis Lennon, Conor Parke, Adie Gaffey, Conor O’Donnell, Colm Flood (0-1), Seán McVeigh (0-2), Stephen Doherty, Conor McVeigh, Eugene Organ, Conor O’Grady, Colm Breathnach (1-5, 0-5 frees, 1-0 pen), Gearóid Leahy.
