Final Water Polo Tournament of the Season

The Blues travelled to Johannesburg for their final Tournament of the season at KES. They started the tournament with a solid 15-5 win over Northwood. The team made hard work of the second fixture against the home side KES. They always seemed in control of the game, but allowed KES back in on several occasions, before finishing with a strong 4th quarter to win 11-7. The final pool game was against SACS. We started off to slowly and conceded 5 easy goals in the 1st quarter. The team however dug deep and finished well but could not claw back that 5 goal deficit and lost 13-7.

This set us up for a tough quarter final against St Johns. The well drilled St Johns team struggled against our defense in the 1st 2 quarters, but as the game progressed, the Blues got frustrated and tried to create more goal scoring opportunities, which opened our defense and St Johns eventually ran away with the game in the 4th quarter.

We had to settle playing for 5th -8th position. We met Rondebosch in the 1st playoff game and the team managed to secure a 9-8 victory after a penalty shootout. The final game of the tournament was against St Stithians, due to time constraints the games were shortened and The Blues who should have sealed the game in the 1st quarter, but could not finish our opportunities, managed a great come back on the hooter to secure a 4 all draw and we ended up 5th overall.

Well done to the Blues for a good tournament and season. I am looking forward to coming back stronger in the 3rd term.
