Sedgefield top first U17 Prelims

Sedgefield top Boys U17 Prelims

Last year’s U15 ASA National Age Group champions Sedgefield carried over their form into the first event of the 2015 ASA National Age Group Water Polo Championships, topping Group A of the Boys U17 Prelims in Walsall.

While they lost their opening match – and the opening match of the day – to last year’s runners-up Invicta, Sedgefield grew with confidence throughout the day, securing wins over Cwm Draig A, City of Manchester, Cheltenham and Caledonia to finish top on eight points.

City of Manchester progressed second on seven points, drawing 3-3 with Invicta but winning their other three matches, while Invicta slipped up against Cwm Draig A but secured the third qualification spot, also on seven points.

While Cheltenham finished without a win from their five matches, their 15-year old Nick Armitage-Bond was the top goalscorer of the day with 16 while Invicta’s Frederick Pearson notched 15.

Sedgefield, City of Manchester and Invicta will now play in the Qualification round on 28 – 29 March while Cwm Draig A, Caledonia and Cheltenham move into the Plate competition.
