Our U13 Mini-Polo'ers had a great day today at the Manchester Water Polo Festival. After a tight start in the group stage with a narrow win over a ORCA & Stretford combined team, they went on to win their other group stage matches comfortably. The team went on to win their quarter-final, but lost out in the semi-final to St. Ambrose who went on to take Gold in the Final. We finished the day with a win to take home the Bronze medal, in the most dramatic clash of the day. After going 2-0 down before half time, the team showed composure and character to go ahead 3-2 in the second half. The match ended at full time all tied up at 4-4. The penantly shootout was 3 a piece, with our captain and goalkeeper standing up to put the first penalty in the back of the net, he then went on to save all three of their opposing team's penalties! Resulting in a 5-4 win and Bronze medal well deserved.
