The Glenwood first team water polo played Westville in an exciting pre-season game on Tuesday night. Although the Westville side was missing some key players they still proved to be formidable opposition, swimming hard and making good choices on the attack. This saw them take the lead 5-4 in the second chukka. The Glenwood boys managed to level things up before halftime and that meant it was all to play for in the second half. After some harsh words at the halftime break, the senior duo of Aaron and Joshua Jacoby came out firing, combining well to score 3 very quick goals and take the momentum back into our favour. The twins showed tremendous big match temperament when we needed it most and scored 8 goals between them (Joshua 6 and Aaron 2). Superb defending by D. Kirkbride saw Westville not score a single goal in the second half and we wrapped up the game 12-5. Other goal scorers were Luke Mac Donald (2), Alex Van Rooyen (1) and Jerry Reddy (1).
