GGS vs Aquinas - Preparatory A's

Away

A good first match for our Prep School A team vs a strong Aquinas (all male) team on an extremely hot day.

Our Team was primarily made up of Year 6's with 1 x Year 5. We played a Aquinas Team full of players that either had some club experience, or strong swimming backgrounds.

Congratulations to those that played their first ever game of Water Polo, and to those who played their first game in the A's team.

Well done to our goal scorers and to Charles for carrying out the leadership role well for this match.

Great work to all who tried goal-keeping for a quarter.

Our female players (Emily in particular) received praise for their ability and strength in the water from the Aquinas coach, Tom Hoad - if you are not sure who he is, that is a big compliment (Mr Hoad's Water Polo background is worth a search)!

Things to work on for upcoming games:

- Being goal side in defence.

- Swimming in to space in attack.

- Having confidence to take a shot if you are within range.

All players participated well, demonstrating a pleasing level of sportsmanship and effort in their first match of the year.

See you for training, Tuesday!
Coach Chelsey
