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.
