Water Polo v Penrith

Water Polo v Penrith
We had 15 children attend the 11 & Under games against Penrith. Some of our team had never held a water polo ball before never mind played a game, yet they got stuck in and after a shaky start both teams made a game of it. The first game was a 7-2 victory for Penrith, then the next team lost 5-0.
We then went into the big pool for a short game and again Penrith were the victors 4-1.

I was very encouraged with the application of all the team and we have some talented kids who just need to be given the chance to play more.

The 12 & over game was much more of a contest with both teams having periods of domination with the home side starting strongly and taking the lead only for Penrith to rally. It wasn’t until a Rory Ward thunderbolt in the dying seconds that Carlisle edged ahead winning a very good game 8-9.

Big thanks to Penrith for coming along to help us in our quest to get Water Polo back into the club, also Sarah & Becky Lightowler for helping with everything.

Thanks also to the parents who were getting very involved from the balcony and last but not least all the budding Water Polo Players for taking part and doing CA proud.
