Monday, 25 July 2016 10:19

The 2016 edition of the Hertfordshire and district handicapped KO cup followed a slightly different format.

On Saturday 23/7/16 six senior teams gathered in Northampton as well as two girls team and two U16 teams, over 100 water polo players. The highlight of the group games was a 4 to 3 victory by Spalding over Watford. In the other group Hatfield dominated, with Bedford also qualifying for the semi finals. An excellent girls game then took place with Northampton beating a Herts team with a goal in the last second, the final score being 5:6. Northampton beat Hertford in 5th,6th play off game before Bedford beat Spalding thus qualifying for the final. In the 2nd semi final Watford found their A game and easily beat Hatfield. An U16 game between Northampton and a Herts team (made up with players from 3 clubs but a majority from Watford) entertained the crowd with the Northampton team coming out on top winning 5:3. Everything was set for the final between Bedford and Watford. Bedford had a +3 handicap advantage but Watford quickly reeled them in playing some excellent polo to run out 9:5 winners thus winning the Herts KO cup.

Congratulations to Watford and many thanks to Northampton for hosting a tournament that all thoroughly enjoyed.
