Dolphin on Top Again
Event: Bristol & West Division II League Fixture
Dolphin v Frome
Date: Sunday 10th June 2007
Dolphin Water Polo team continued from where they left off on Thursday with a battling victory over a strong, physical Frome side.
Dolphin started the first quarter playing some poor Polo. The side were lucky to emerge at the end of the period still in the match, which was all-square at one goal each, Michal Trzeciak scoring the solitary strike.
During the second quarter Dolphin played much better. They came to terms with Frome’s physical side and managed to win the quarter three goals to two with strikes coming from Darryl Pye, Rob Green and David Quinlivan.
Frome battled their way back into the game in the third quarter, and they won the period by two efforts to one. Trzeciak with his second of the game was the only highlight for Dolphin.
The match was nicely poised at the start of the final period with the teams locked together at five goals each. Dolphin managed to show that their confidence was still high following their mid week victory. They managed to create a small lead with goals from James Godden and Andy Hicks. Frome replied with a goal but Dolphin soon had their 2-goal lead back thanks to Matt James. Dolphin won comfortably in the end by nine goals to six.
Goalkeeper for the day, Ian Brewer said after the match “It looked like a very hard day at the office for the outfield players, although they all worked extremely hard and limited the opposition to long shots. With a bit more composure I think we would have won the game by a greater margin. Still at least our unbeaten run has now been extended to a fourth match, lets hope we can keep this going next week when we play Newton Abbot at home”.
