Strong show from Brits not enough to defeat Szeged

20 February 2011

With yesterday’s defeat behind them the British Women’s Water Polo Team, powered by British Gas, were hoping to leave Hungary with a win against Szeged under their belts, but the side proved too tough once again.

Getting off to a good start the Brits came out fighting with a number of shots on goal and stayed with the Hungarian club side throughout the first half of the match.

Goals from Fiona McCann and Chloe Wilcox got the team into the game and the Brits would have had more if it wasn’t for the strength of the Szeged defence.

Fran Leighton, Angie Winstanley-Smith and Becky Kershaw rounded off the British scoring for the first half as the Brits trailed by just one goal.

Britain were unable to respond to the two goals scored by Szeged in the third quarter as shots from Rachel Drabble, Ciara Gibson and Fran Clayton were denied.

Ciara Gibson tried to get the Brits back on track with the first goal of the final quarter, but Szeged’s attack found their way through the British defence to score a further three times.

Angie Winstanley-Smith fired Britain’s last shot of the match, scoring from a man-up situation, but it was not enough to see Great Britain claim victory. Final score:  11-7 to Szeged.

The Brits will now return to the High Performance Centre in Manchester and prepare for their next pair of matches in the Hungarian National League against ZF-Eger on 5th and 6th March.
