Mike Campbell scored 2:31 into the fourth overtime to give Agoura High a 10-9 victory over Buena in a nonleague water polo match Tuesday at Buena.

Hans Larsen scored for Agoura (1-1) with 17 seconds remaining in regulation to tie the game at 7-7.

The teams remained tied, 9-9, after two three-minute overtime periods and a scoreless sudden-death period, before Campbell hit the game winner in the second sudden-death period.

In another high school water-polo game:
