Waterpolo Match Report 27.4.06
Basingstoke 2nds (13) vs Weymouth (11)

‘Action Packed Match’

Weymouth came to play Basingstoke at the Aquadrome with a good fit team. They played to the very edge of the rules and beyond. In a fast paced match the ball was going from end to end. Weymouth opened the score first after just a couple of minutes, but through the match Basingstoke came back at them. Both teams fouled each other in the first quarter leaving the score at 2 –

The second quarter was another seven minutes of full on action, both teams scoring and as the quarter came to a close the score stood at 4 – 2 to the away side. Luckily Basingstoke pulled back, Mike and Paul both scored top class goals to bring the half time score to 4 goals each.

Throughout the next seven minutes of play no less than 8 goals were scored but still the teams were level 8 – 8.
Weymouth were showing signs of getting tired because of their small squad and Basingstoke pulled forward and scored another 5 goals bring the final score to 13 -11 to Basingstoke. A fantastic home win for the Bluefins. What must be said is that the goal keeping standard by Geoff and Hilton was amazing and they should share men of the match according to the poolside spectators.

Goal scorers: Mike (1) Brad (6) Mark (1) Andy (2) Hilton (2) Rob (1)
Bluefins showed that ‘when the going gets tough, the tough get going’.
A good win!!!!
