SaMoHi's Robert Staenberg goes for the loose ball in the Vikings' 8-3 win over Torrance on Friday.

The No. 9 SaMoHi Viking girls' tennis team didn't need much to beat Culver City on Thursday.

But even while holding some of their top players, the Centaurs still were no match.

The Vikings blanked Culver 18-0, winning every match in three rounds while rotating 12 players, including six singles players.

And on Friday, the Viking boys' water polo team stayed on the league bubble with a win over the rough and tumble Torrance Tartars.

Jordan Bishop led SaMoHi with four goals while Brian Kong added two and Jack Schwartzman had 16 saves.

Friday night's SaMoHi football game against Beverly Hills started slow for the Vikings, but with the help of some strong running and the season's first punt return for a touchdown by Sebastian Larue, SaMo pulled through to knock off the Normans 36-14.

London Lewis punched his tickets for six twice, while Korey Garcia and Donovan Citrowski also scored on the ground.

SaMoHi come back home on Friday to play Morningside. Kickoff flies at 7 p.m.
