Wynberg played a series of thrilling matches against Westerford on Friday, 3 November.Keep calm and play waterpolo

The U16A Wynberg Waterpolo Team displayed clean, skilful waterpolo together as a team as well as individuals. There was an amazing build up in the last two chukkas. Well done to our stunning goalkeeper, Jordan for her great over-three-quarter pool pass. Brilliant goals were scored from the rest of the team. It was a great way to end off the season and a good base to build on for next season. Congratulations to the team for winning their match a whopping 10-2! We see bright things for this team in the upcoming season.
The U16B match started off in a very promising way – by the second chukka, the score was 3-2 to Wynberg, but in the third chukka we started giving passes away to our opponents. Despite great efforts from Jennifer and Mia, bringing back the defensive line to the five metre, we lost the game. Even though we did not win, it was the best game we have played this season: we worked as a team and showed great attacking skills. This is a very sound basis for an excellent season in 2018.
The Second Team played a strong game. Despite losing 6-5, they spirits at no point flagged. The girls started the game off well, playing a very strong game. Tension was present throughout game, with both teams neck and neck. It really was, for us, one of the most exciting games of the season. All-in-all our second team have had a fabulous first season – they’ve played with pride, unity and strength and we are looking forward to seeing them win plenty more games next season!
Wynberg Girls’ 1st Team played their final game of the year against their tough rival , Westerford. The girls set off with a bang and won their first chukka 1-0. Going into the next chukka with their heads held high they fought hard, but Westerford managed to sneak in three goals. Right before the buzzer went off for the end of the second chukka, the girls scored their second goal taking the score to 4-2 at half time. During the third chukka the Westerford girls scored three more goals. Had it been any team other than Wynberg, it might have crushed a losing team, but after their team talk they went into the final 8 minutes of the game with a new found fighting spirit. This shone through in those last minutes as they went on to score 3 goals making the final score 9-5. Although we lost the game, there were so many more things that we won: team pride, teamwork and team support are just three of those gains. Our goal scorers for this match were Karen Roodman , Bilquees Abrahams and Olivia Walker. Building on this, we look forward to the next season with excitement.
