Sedgefield Water Polo Club’s Under 14 team travelled to Morley, Leeds for their Wakefield & District league fixture on Thursday 30th May. Due to school holidays, we only had a team of eight players available to travel, which meant lots of pool time for everyone.
The game got off to a flying start with Bram scoring the first goal within the first 25 seconds of the starting whistle, and this was followed by goals from Indie, Thomas, Reka and Fynn along with a hat trick from Jasper. This meant the score was a fantastic 0-8 by the end of the first quarter.
The team continued to play from strength to strength in the second quarter, with four goals from Thomas, two from Indie and one each from Bram and Jasper; giving a half time score of 1-16.
The third quarter began with a goal from Thomas, just twelve seconds after the starting whistle, and this was followed with goals from Reka, Jasper, Arwen and Fynn; giving the team a very well deserved 1-22 win by the end of this quarter.
As the fourth quarter began, the team’s fitness shone through and they continued to score, with a hat trick from Thomas along with goals from Indie and Fynn. Special recognition goes to Dylan – our goalkeeper – who, despite playing the whole game, didn’t get the opportunity to save many goals due to the ball being in the opponents half of the pool for the majority of the game. Arwen and Bram both scored their first competitive league goals – well done! Final score was a 1-27 win.
We’d also like to advise that we can now offer player sponsorships for just £30 per player for this season in return for regular advertising and promotion on our social media pages. If this is something that your business may be interested in, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. All monies raised will be used to allow our fantastic members the opportunity to develop their skills and provide them with the equipment they need in order to succeed in the sport.
In addition to Junior and Senior sessions, Sedgefield Water Polo Club now offers a beginner session at Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre on a Saturday afternoon for those wishing to try this fun and exciting sport. All sessions need to be booked in advance on our Club App, so please check our website for further information and joining instructions, email: or contact 07579 030598.
