THE Grey High School u/14A waterpolo team recently concluded the season in a fantastic way by winning the ITEC Grey College Waterpolo tournament in Bloemfontein.

On day 1 they breezed past the ITEC invitation team by 22 goals to nil before going on to defeat Northwood High by 15 goals to 1.

Day 2 saw them account for both KES (9-3) and a very physical Jeppe side by 6 goals to 2.

Those four wins resulted in them ending top of their pool and set up a quarter-final with St Albans, from Pretoria. The Grey boys were in a clearly bullish mood and totally outclassed their opponents en route to a 12 -2 victory.

The semi-final was against St John’s College, from Johannesburg, it was a nail-biting affair with the teams not letting each other out of sight. Grey turned 3-1 up before St John’s hit twice in quick succession to level the match at 3-a-piece.

Two great goal face passes by Ricky King enabled Matt Easton to gain the advantage and they led 5-3 going into the final minute. A penalty concluded proceedings and handed Grey a 6-4 victory.

The final was played against the tournament favourite side- Clifton. The first chukka saw them stutter and falter and a general lack of composure resulted in them trailing by 2 goals to 1.

The Grey boys regrouped brilliantly at the break and goals by Reece Audie, Ricky King and Matthew Easton, who scored 4 goals, put them in a 6-2 lead.

Fantastic dogged defence kept the Clifton onslaught at bay and they deservedly won the match 6- 2. Matthew Easton was awarded the Forward of the Tournament award with a tournament haul of 21 goals.

The boys were fine ambassadors both in and out of the water and Ricky King collected the ITEC trophy on behalf of the team.
