It wasn't quite how they envisioned it, but the Exeter Monarchs water polo team split the last two games of the season and failed to make the playoffs for the first time in years.
Last Monday they suffered a shocking loss to the Dinuba Emperors 10-6. It was the first league win for Dinuba in two years.
They would rebound against Granite Hills on Wednesday, but it was too little too late for the team's dwindling playoff hopes.
Exeter defeated Granite Hills 8-6 at home getting three goals from Daniel Munsch, two from Keith Robinson, two from Aaron Henderson and one from Ryan Allen.
