Young Glenwood side struggle at water-polo event

2014-10-09 00:00

GLENWOOD High School sent a young team to the SACS waterpolo tournament last weekend, with only one Grade 12 player in the side.

Nine testing matches lay ahead and the lads got off on the right footing with a 11-6 win against Reddam House in an entertaining warm-up clash.

When the serious business started, it was clear that the level of play and competition allowed for minimum mistakes, with the opposition quick to take advantage of any mishaps.

This happened in the opening match against Michaelhouse, where the Durban boys dominated except on the scoreboard.

It set the pattern for the tournament, Glenwood playing with heart and determination but failing to excite the scoreboard too often.

Missed opportunities were left to be reflected upon and the best game of the tournament for Glenwood was against Wynberg, where they picked up a gear and converted 75% of their chances in a 7-2 win.

Consolation for Glenwood was Gabriel Stopford being recognised with an award for impeccable sportsmanship throughout the event.
