1st team 
After a 5-5 draw in Term 4 of 2015, Rustenburg came in strong and confident and ended up beating Wynberg 7-3. It was an unlucky and difficult game, but the girls pushed through and gave it their all. Well done to every one who played and thank you to all the dedicated supporters

Overall it was a successful day, the crowd was packed and we had the entire Wynberg Boys’ Water Polo 1st team there cheering our girls and helping out with the table. The tuckshop was a hub and with our tech team girls there, a wonderful atmosphere was created. We’d like to thank all of those who helped out behind the scenes, and particularly to the first team parents for their ongoing support and encouragement.

2nd team 
Wynberg played a good game of water polo. They were really resilient, but our mighty 2nds managed to draw 5-5. Player of the match was Sonja Stock, who scored most of our goals and played exceptionally well. Our focus for the week is improvement on our communication skills in the pool, our man ups and switches.

The U16A girls had a cracker of a game. It was a very tight match with neither teams scoring in the first two chukkas. However, that changed with Rustenburg scoring the only goal of the match in the third quarter. Wynberg played a good game overall, and our player of the match goes to our goalkeeper, Megan De Beer.

The score was 3-2 to Rustenberg . This team played an excellent match , swimming up the pool and coming back fast to cover on defense. Our shots were great, but there was a tough goal keeper to get through. Wynberg kept our oppenents at 2-2, but unfortunately they scored a goal in the last seconds. Well done girls on showing grit and digging deep.

Friday’s match was evenly matched, but our feisty u14As managed to win with an impressive score of 7 – 4. Players of the match were Lara Mills and Jade Yardin. Having said this the whole team worked extremely well together with only a few minor hiccoughs along the way. The lesson we can take from this success is the critical importance of team work.

On Friday 5 February  our team played against Rustenburg U14B. Although we lost to our opponents, there is little doubt that the U14 B’s played extremely well. Well done to Caylee, Kayla and Stacy for scoring  3 goals.  Having lost finally by 4 goals, points that we have taken away to work on include:  listening to our coaches and work on confidence and speed. We’d like to thank Kagiso and Erin for the brilliant  coaching .
