Congratulations to Trinity’s U15 water polo team who this week joined our U18 team in qualifying for the ESSA National Final at Northampton Boy’s School next Tuesday 14 March. This was following a tense semi-final on Monday night, with the team achieving three wins and a narrow loss.
The final results of the evening were:
Mr King, Head of Aquatics, provides the match report:
“Our opening two games were very straightforward, but we were not up to our usual standard in both key qualification games against Dulwich College and Bedford.
“Having started brilliantly against Dulwich College, we unfortunately threw away a three-goal cushion in the second half and ended with a narrow loss. While disappointing to have lost a match, it is not a disaster at this stage of the competition. The team is capable of playing to an outstanding level, and we have every chance of reaching the latter stages of the competition next week. There is always lots to learn and ways to improve and we will go into our next training session with this resolve.
“There were some individual moments of brilliance during the semi-final, but Third Year student Kal-El Ntiamoah was, without doubt, our best performer. There were countless times he selflessly covered for his teammates and not only stopped an almost certain goal but recovered possession for the team. A special mention also goes to Fourth Year Piran Lewis who was excellent in goal.”
Congratulations to the team on their result and good luck in the National Finals next week!
