Pleasing play in Pearson tournament


Pearson second team tournament
Over the weekend of 31 January until 2 February, the St Andrew’s College second and third water polo teams participated in the annual Pearson Second Team tournament.

In the initial group stages both teams struggled to find continuity due to late team changes and were
not able to put together more than a chukka of quality polo. However, by Saturday afternoon, both
teams had become more familiar with each other and the intensity of the competition and produced
some pleasing play and better results.

It was however a little bit too late to change the major position that they could achieve in the
tournament and both teams ended up playing the knock-out part of the tournament in the bottom
half of the draw.

The third team had a pleasing win in their last game and ended up placing 11th overall while the
second team beat Woodridge to secure 9th position.

The results are as follows:
St Andrew’s 2 Grey 12
St Andrew’s 3 Pearson 12
