Moving up one division has not appeared to affect Mira Costa’s boys water polo team as the Mustangs advanced to the CIF Southern Section Division 2 semifinals with a 10-7 win against host San Clemente.

Andrew Todd scored three goals and Ed Jeon, Brandon Lavinsky and Jake Miller-Tolt each recorded two goals for fourth-seeded Mira Costa (24-6) which will face top-seeded Foothill (23-6) at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at William Woollett Jr. Aquatic Center in Irvine. Finals are scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 22 at the same venue.

Coach Jon Reichardt’s Mustangs have reached the semifinals for the third straight year. In a rematch of last year’s CIF-SS Division 3 championship game, Mira Costa defeated visiting Santiago/Corona 16-8 in the quarterfinals on Thursday. Miller-Tolt led the Mustangs with four goals and Finn Pardon added three goals in the win.

In Division 4, third-seeded El Segundo (23-6) suffered a 9-8 upset by Glendale in the quarterfinals on Saturday.
