Back-to-back Win for Water Polo

28 June; Alice Timbrell


The Melbourne University Water Polo (MUWP) Womens State League Two team were victorious for the second year in a row in the Water Polo Victoria Winter competition last week.

MUWP defeated Nunawading and Yarra Plenty (NYP) Dragons 7-2, adding to their previous year win against Monash University Yellow.

The team held a strong position going into the final round, but faced a tough last match against rivals NYP Dragons, whom they had lost to previously by only one goal.

NYP Dragons lead the first quarter 2-1, with the University team coming up against some rough play.  Tight defence and goals by Bachelor of Science student Alice Campbell and PhD candidate Sophia Luikinga ensured the Womens team were in the lead at half time.  With the third quarter goalless, it was a tense final seven minutes. Melbourne dominated the last quarter, scoring four consecutive goals.

Club President Matthew Keen is very happy with the team’s back-to-back win. ‘The State League Two team have been excellent this season, and the final was no exception.  They have great trust in each other and our game plan.’

Keen was particularly pleased with the team’s performance in the last quarter. ‘After being 3-2 up at half time and have a scoreless third quarter, our pressure forced the opposition to make mistakes, which we were able to capitalise on. It was the most complete game the team has played all season.’

The State League Two team will get back in the pool later in the year to compete in the State Championships.
