Find out how our Women's Water Polo team got on at BUCS Semi Finals
On the 15th and 16th March, the Water Polo girls BUCS campaign sadly comes to an end at Semi Finals in Leeds. Although they were given a tough draw with Loughborough, Cardiff and Sheffield Hallam to play, they put up a good fight. The Loughborough match, Bristol's first opponents, was a very close game being decided by a goal in the last three seconds from over half way down the pool which put the final score at 6-7. The Cardiff match came second and were a formidable opponent, sadly taking advantage of us and winning 2-7. Finally came Sheffield Hallam, a team renowned for their strength. The final score was 11-4 to Sheffield Hallam, despite Rachel Hollington scoring a hat-trick for Bristol. Player of the Tournament goes to Jordan Kelly-Linden for saving some amazing goals!
Although a disappointing end to this year's BUCS campaign for the girls, the team continues to evolve with a number of promising players. With new coach Lou Betts on board, there's sure to be great things to come from the Women's Water Polo team in the future.
