Josh Birch scored the game's first goal for Saline.
From there, it was all Dexter.
The Dreadnaughts defeated Saline, 18-3, in boys' varsity water polo. The young Hornet team knew they were in for a tough challenge against Dexter, ranked second in the state. Birch scored from 10 meters less than three minutes into the game.
Alex Melnyk added two goals in the second half for Saline.
Allen Holloway and Will Clark made a ton of great saves or the score could have been more lopsided.
