The annual college water polo tournament resulted in a win for Langwith College on Sunday.

Three teams were assembled from James, Derwent, Halifax, Alcuin, Vanbrugh and Langwith Colleges to compete in the College Water Polo tournament at the York Sport Village on Sunday 15th of November. The teams warmed up with lengths and exercises before being briefed on the rules by College Sport Officers Amy Gould and Esther Worrall.

Derwithbrugh (a strict combination of Derwent, Langwith and Vanbrugh) played the first match against the Water Wings, winning with six goals against two. Water Wings then took on Team 2, winning their game with five goals against two. Team 2 then played against Derwithbrugh, with the latter winning with six goals against two.

Derwithbrugh may have won the game on points, but the win was awarded to Langwith College, which fielded more than half the players for all the teams that competed and took up a great presence on the poolside. Overall the event was a great display of water polo from seasoned water polo veterans, experienced past players and newcomers alike.

“One Day Tournaments are a great way to represent your college and compete for points that go towards the heavily sought after College Cup!” said Amy Gould after the event,  “They also allow you to try sports that aren’t available at college level. You may even go on to join the club afterwards as well!”

On Sunday of Week 9, the next One Day Tournament event will take place in the Roger Kirk Centre from 7pm – 10pm.
