I went with coach Shakey, and our women’s water polo team, the Penguin Emperors, to Walsall for two matches in the 2nd Division of the BWPL and thoroughly enjoyed watching them in action.
They played extremely well and, although they lost against Liverpool Liver Birds on Saturday, the score of 12/8 didn’t really reflect the closeness of the match and they put up a great fight.
On Sunday they were splendid against Tyldesley, looking good, swimming hard, putting in plenty of shots at goal, passing and scoring well. It was great to watch and the score of 9/6 was well deserved.
We have a great bunch of women who are really fun to hang out with. Their hard work and training has paid off, with this weekend’s results putting them 2nd in Division 2 at the end of the first half of the season. Now they go into Championship 1 for the second half of season, aiming to win entry into Division 1.
Shakey says excellent effort from the team this year.
