Girls Water Polo: The Top 20 Rankings

Reddam consolidate their position at the top of the rankings this week after a very comfortable 11-0 victory over Bloemhof who struggled to pose much of a threat in a slightly one sided match on a boiling hot day.

Clifton hold on to the No.1 spot for the second week running after a successful match against Michaelhouse which saw the Durban outfit stretch their winning streak to seven matches and still unbeaten for 2014.

Although the season is still in its early stages there has been several matches played which have also included two big tournaments where most of the big names participated in.

Clifton College have for some time threatened to show just how strong a powerhouse they are in school water polo and they didn’t waste any time this year in putting on an early display of complete dominance at the Grey College Tournament.

Glenwood Water Polo

The KZN Top 10 came to a conclusion yesterday with the Glenwood junior teams performing exceptionally well.
For the 1st team it was a nightmare come true with their Goalkeeper withdrawing at the 11th hour as a result of a debilitating virus. His replacement too was unavailable due to a family tragedy and the third replacement had a broken hand. As such the team relied on the U15B Goalkeeper as well as a player to fulfil the role. Both players gave 100% effort.
The U15A team performed extremely well. In their final pool match against Clifton, the team played their best water polo with Clifton snatching a draw in the dying moments of the game. The boys then had to play DHS two hours later and although we had a 3-0 lead, the physical demands of the Clifton game took its toll and the boys weren’t able to maintain this lead and lost 4-7. In the end the team finished third overall, a superb result.
The U14A team too had a brilliant tournament. The boys played exceptional water polo and deserved their place in the final. However they were very unlucky. They led for the entire match only to be beaten by an unfortunate goal in the end.
Glenwood finished in 2nd placed in the overall standings behind Clifton, the highest position we have attained since the inception of the KZN Top 10.

PearsonAfter an absence of a year, the Van Staden’s cup was back in full flight with 10 teams entering from around the Eastern Cape. Among the teams were the top ranked sides from Grey High School, Pearson and Kingswood College. After two days of exciting and competitive water polo which produced some stunning play, there were only two teams remaining, Grey High and Pearson.

The First Teams of Pearson and Grey had played near flawless water polo during the tournament and it promised to be a memorable final between two powerful teams. Grey High, who are ranked 3rd in South Africa) had their reputation on the line as they faced a courageous Pearson side who had match after match punched above their weight.

At the end it would be Grey High that would prevail winning the final and the Van Staden’s Cup 8-0. Congratulations to Grey for their outstanding play. Credit must also go to Pearson for hosting the tournament and also for the way they played showing that they have grown into one of the strongest teams in the Eastern Cape after securing wins against Graeme College 11-0, Woodridge 7-1, Selborne College 4-2 and Grey 2nds 2-0.
