Caledonia U19 boys are the 2018 SE National Age Group Champions
National Age Groups in Manchester.
Caley Celebrate Double Success!
Caledonia Water Polo - Mens Team are celebrating a double success at the Swim England National Age Groups in Manchester.
After yesterday’s semi-final victory for the under 19’s, the under 17’s took centre stage in the Plate Competition, remaining unbeaten against Cheltenham and Bristol to qualify for the final. They defeated Nova Centurion 8-2 in the final to win the plate!
That set the under 19’s a target to bring home the cup in what was expected to be a tough, physical encounter against Sedgefield.
Caley struggled to reach the highs that they achieved in Saturday’s victory against Sheffield, but dug in against Sedgefield.
They trailed 2-1 at the end of 1 period. An even tighter 2nd period saw Sedgefield extend their lead to 3-1 at half time.
A stern talking to from their coach during the break seemed to do the trick as Caley stormed out the blocks in the 3rd period to gain the lead 4-3 before Sedgefield called a tactical timeout, and they regained a 5-4 lead with 1 period to play.
An unbelievable final period from Caley saw them outscore Sedgefield 4-1, to take the title with an 8-6 victory!!!
Fantastic work from both teams to take home the trophies!
