2014-11-11 00:00

AS in the cricket, Westville and Kearsney were involved in a titanic battle in the water-polo stakes on Saturday, with Westville pulling through by the odd goal in a low-scoring affair.

Glenwood were way too strong for College and were never challenged in a strong win.

Westville v Kearsney

This was a tight, low-scoring clash, with Westville getting home 4-3.

Kearsney struck first in the first quarter only to see Westville level matters with a Grant Hewitt strike after being a man up.

While both sides pushed for supremacy, goals were scarce and the sides remained locked at 1-1 at the halfway point.

Kearsney again took the initiative to go ahead and once more Westville struck back to restore the stalemate.

Westville finally went ahead with three minutes remaining in the third quarter, the advantage was short lived as Kearsney found the net with their next attack.

There was all to play for and with a minute remaining in the third quarter, Westville scored what proved to be the winner.

The final quarter saw both teams off the mark as they missed plenty of opportunities to find the net.

Westville hung on for the win, with Chad Hosken scoring two of his side’s goals.

Glenwood v College

This was Glenwood’s final fixture of the year and despite travelling to Pietermaritzburg, the Durban boys enjoyed an outstanding day in the pool.

Glenwood won all their matches through all the age groups, dominating the first team game against a College side who seemed to tire and battle to keep up with the tempo of the game.

Dylan Cronje and Shane Westman were strong for Glenwood, the latter creating many extra man opportunities thanks to his dominance at centre forward.

Wayne Phillips was also solid, supporting Westman by carrying the ball hard, thereby able to feed good early ball to the dominating centre forward.
