ASA South West Water Polo Club Championships 2008

17 May 2008 - Millfield

The first two ASA SW Club Championships have been held and for the first time included Mini-Polo (10 & Under). Unfortunately the number of entrant teams decreased from four to two prior to the event, which resulted in the kids from Christchurch & New Milton Seagulls and Exeter being delighted to be playing in the final! With what was probably the largest contingent of parents, grandparents, siblings etc that Millfield has ever seen for a single water polo match cheering the players on, the teams played a full 4 quarter match and the standard of play was surprisingly high.

Exeter emerged victorious 8-2 with 9 year olds Kamz Powell and George Scott both netting hat-tricks for Exeter. Player of the Match (as nominated by referee Jason Quiterio) was Alex Sanger-Anderson (Exeter) who performed well both in goal and out.
