Water Polo: National League Update

Drummoyne Devils v Hunter Hurricanes

Hunter Hurricanes were cruelly denied victory, losing 11-10 to Balmain Tigers in a men’s National Water Polo League match at the Dawn Fraser Pool here yesterday.

At 9-6 up early in the final quarter, the Hurricanes supporters were prematurely celebrating victory but watched as the margin was whittled to 9-8 and then 10-9 inside the final two minutes.

When Daniel Robinson was ejected at 1:29, Balmain called a timeout, worked out a strategy and then passed the ball for 20 seconds before James Falzon scored his second goal for 10-10.

Balmain called another timeout and the ploy was to get another ejection, Robinson again, to set up an extra-man play and score, which Falzon did 17 seconds from time for 11-10.

Man-of-the-match goalkeeper Angus Crowley could not stop the winner in a game where Hunter only took the lead at 3:31 left in the third period.

Balmain women beat Hunter 12-8 after leading 7-3 at halftime.

Drummoyne Devils’ fly-in recruit from Perth, Tim Cleland, was evicted from the game against Sydney University Lions late in the third quarter for back-chatting the referee.

At the University of Wollongong, KFC Breakers women held off Cronulla Sharks 5-4 thanks to an Ellie Bowden goal just inside the last two minutes. The Breakers men blitzed Cronulla 21-2 with Tom Knox claiming six goals.

In Perth, Brisbane Barracudas men came from 6-5 down at three-quarter time to defeat UWA Torpedoes 9-6 while the Barracudas women bounced UWA Comets 13-8.
