Brits beat BVSC for second day running
7 February 2011
The British Women’s Water Polo Team, powered by British Gas, secured their third victory in as many matches yesterday as they beat BVSC-Zuglo Diaplo 11-8.
With an 11-10 victory the day before the Brits were riding high on confidence and it showed as they took an early two goal lead thanks to shots from Fran Clayton and Angie Winstanley-Smith. BVSC fired back with two goals from Hanna Kisteleki and Anna Illes to level the score.
The defensive line-up on each team showed their worth as shots from both sides were blocked, but it was Lisa Gibson who closed the first quarter with Britain’s third goal to finish 3-2 up.
Over six minutes of the second quarter passed before either team was able to make a mark on the score sheet and it was BVSC who came out on top finding the back of the net twice to take the lead before the half time whistle.
Coming back out, Ciara Gibson leveled from a man-up situation and Chloe Wilcox regained a goal advantage, but it wasn’t until Kisteleki leveled for BVSC that the Brits began to run away with the match.
Two goals apiece from Winstanley-Smith and Aine Hoy, along with Clayton and Frankie Snell finding the back of the net, saw the Brits dominate the second half of the match finishing with an 11-8 victory and a huge lift to their Hungarian National League campaign.
They will now have to wait until 19th February when they face Szeged in another double header.
