Girls U14 SW Water Polo Team are Inter Regions Runners Up

The girls started the weekend with their first group match v East Midlands. A great first game winning 8-1 with 4 goals from Amelia Jones.

The second match was against the North East who are always going to be tough physical opponents. This proved to be a really tight match, 2 goals from the captain Nyah Tomlinsonwasn’t quite enough as the  girls lost by one goal 7-6.

The girls 3rd match again was quite a tight match, but the girls pulled through to defat the North West lightning 5-3. 3 Goals from Alice Tubby made the difference in this game.

The girls last match of the day was against the South East. Analysing the opposition from other results so far that day, this was clearly going to be a close match. This is exactly what happened and the nail bitting match ended up as a 3-3 draw. Goals came from Nyah Tomlinson and Freya Webster.

The group results meant that the South West girls had made it to the semi-finals to play London who were undefeated in their group. Our girls came out fighting for their place in the final and that’s exactly what happened. The girls ended up winning 5-3 with an even share of goals amongst the team. (Fraya Webster, Nyah Tomlinson, Evie Saunders, Millie Simon & Alice Tubby).

The final match versus North West Thunder again was a very close match with the girls giving their all. They ended up losing 7-5 but the girls all did themselves proud.

The whole team really came together over the weekend, and I’m sure each and every one of them will say that staying together and room sharing was all part of their positive experience. It is a joy to see them improve and mature. They all deserve a massive well done from me, I’m so proud of them earning a well deserved Silver Medal.

South west captain, Nyah Tomlinson was voted South West’s most valuable player by the other teams.
