Epsom Girls Grammar took back the mantle of New Zealand Schoolgirls Champions at Huia Pool this afternoon with a 4-1 win over Sacred Heart Lower Hutt.

Epsom were first to score in the first quarter of the game and it took until the second quarter for Sacred to equalise.  With the score tied 1-1 at half time it was anyones game, but a third major foul against Sacred Heart star Haley Duffy with 2:05 remaining in the third quarter was enough to give Epsom the margin they needed.  Epsom scored twice in the third quarter and once more in the last to seal victory.

This result was a turn-around from the North Island Champs in March where Sacred Heart won the final over Epsom 4-2.

  25 Apr 2004, 8:04amitem # 106

The Hutt Women's team beat Northsport 12-5 in last nights National League Water Polo match at Huia Pool in Lower Hutt.

Both teams had just lost to Maranui, Hutt the night before and Northsport that morning, and both were out to turn their fourtunes around.

Hutt got off to an excellent start with 3 goals in the first quarter, two to Julie Berry, but could only covert one of thier 4 6 on 5 situations.

The second quarter was tied 1 all before an action packed third quarter saw Hutt outscore Northsport 4-3.

Hutt finished strongly with Nikki Glintmeyer slotting two goals and a 4-1 quarter saw Hutt the victors at home.

Hutt's Rebecca McGuinness was in fine form scoring a goal in each of the four quarters to lead the tally.

Hutt began well and led for most of the early stages in the match but Maranui clawed their way back and with the scores locked at 8 all Maranui's Koren Wilkinson slammed home the winner to give Maranui a 9-8 win and her 4th goal of the game. Ashleigh Wooton was Hutt's top scorer with 3.

Hutt Men Level Peg It With Harbour City HawksTop of Page
  23 Apr 2004, 10:23amitem # 104

In a nail biting finish that saw the Harbour City Hawks equalize the score in a draw, tonights home game for the Hutt Water Polo mens league team at Huia saw another spirited display of play from the Hutt youngsters, three of whom had to race across from the city where they had been competing in the satellite B schoolboys tournament.

With coach Liz Burman on poolside and seemingly unaffected by jet lag having returned last night from Athens, the Hutt boys got off to a relatively slow start finding themselves 3 goals down halfway through the first quarter.But they soon found their rhythm and with the help of some lapses in the Harbour City discipline, were able to land 2 goals, one from hole set Poara Morrison and the other from Ben Bye making the score a little more even at the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter saw Hutt nudge ahead on the scoreboard with 2 more goals from Morrison and another from Evarn Flaunty.Harbour Citys' Matt Clarrige who dominated their side of the score sheet added another to bring his goal tally at half time to 4 gaols.

More ejections from the Hawks into the third quarter allowed further goal opportunities for Hutt and they were able to maintain the lead and stretch it out to a 2 goal margin by the third siren.

It was however the last quarter that provided the closest play of the match with Hutt holding out a one goal lead right up until the final seconds when they were unfortunate enough to suffer an ejection giving the Hawks the opportunity they needed to equalize the score with Matt Clarrige notching up his eighth and final goal of the match with 4 seconds left on the clock.

This was a very encouraging performance from a rapidly improving Hutt team who went down to the Hawks 11 goals to 16 in their first encounter last month. With 18 points from 4 wins and a draw and three more games to play Hutt are currently sitting at 4th place on the league table.

The game was refereed by Cory Williams and Brendan Ward

Hutt Men Down QEIITop of Page
  18 Apr 2004, 9:00pmitem # 101

It was a sparkling clear Autumn morning that greeted the visitors to Hutt City's Huia pool for the first of their two league games against the young Hutt squad, minus a coach again with Liz Burman in Greece for an Olympic briefing meeting with FINA referees.

The game kicked off sharp on time at 7.45am and settled into a fairly even match. Both sides were a little unsettled at first giving each other goal opportunities with early ejections from which points were conceded by both teams however Hutt managed to lift the score by an extra goal before the end of the quarter with a nice two on one counter attack.

The second quarter was an even match with two goals coming from each side. QEII were still a little edgy suffering two ejections giving Hutt both of their scoring opportunities to Matt Lutrell and Ben Pye.

The second half saw the tide begin to turn in Hutts favour with QEII discipline wavering at times and resulting in 3 more ejections, whilst the Hutt boys held firm and kept all their players in the game for the full seven minutes. Hole set Paora Morrison piled on 3 more goals and Scott James notched a single to bring the score at the third siren to 8 goals to 6 with Adam Cunliffe and Mitchell Spence lifting QEII?s total to keep them in the game.

With seven minutes left QEII could still even the score if they could keep the ejections under control. However a strong defence from the Hutt youngsters and two  polished manoeuvres from Evarn Flaunty, Hutts 15 year old back up hole set saw him firmly slot home 2 more goals bringing Hutt's full time tally to 10 goals. QEII managed a last quarter score from Fraser Bickley from a 6 on 5 and finished the game with a bonus point.

The game was refereed by Brendan Ward and Boris Kipnis

The Marist Magic women?s team won their second game of the National Water Polo league today with an 8-4 victory over Hutt at the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre.

Marist outscored Hutt for each of the first three quarters and showed their class and strength in the bigger 30m pool this evening.

Emily Cox top scored for Marist with two goals, but it was the Magic defence that left Hutt with little opportunities.

A 3-1 first quarter lead was extended to 5-2 at the half.  Another 3 unanswered goals to Marist in the third quarter saw the game out of reach for Hutt who bounced back with a 2-0 last quarter.

The Hutt women?s team scored the first win in the 2004 National Water Polo League beating the Harbour Ctiy Hawks tonight 10-4 at Huia Pool in Lower Hutt.

After a recent loss to Harbour City in the local Wellington competition, Hutt started strongly in the first quarter to race to a four-nil lead.

The second quarter was much closer as both teams put shots away and Hutt extended their lead by one to take the half time score to 7-2.

The third quarter was drawn 1-1, but the damage was done and Hutt finished well putting in another 2 goals in the last quarter to the Hawks 1.

Rebecca McGuinness top scored for Hutt with 5 of their 10 goals while Canterbury?s Sarah Hewitt also notched up 2 goals for Hutt.

The game was closer than the score line indicated with both teams missing scoring opportunities, and both goalkeepers making some excellent saves including the Hawks Carina Harache who saved a four metre penalty early in the third quarter.

Women's National League action continues on Saturday morning with Maranui taking on Auckland?s Marist Magic at the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre at 11am.

National League: Hutt Beat BOP, Lose to MaristTop of Page
  29 Mar 2004, 8:11amitem # 98

It was mixed fortunes for the Mens Hutt league team over the weekend at the Wellington Aquatic Centre.There could not have been more of a contrast in challenge for the games that confronted them on Saturday evening and again early on Sunday morning.The pool was a hive of water polo activity with six of the mens league teams gathered together for all five of weekend 7?s encounters in the one venue.

The return game against the Bay of Plenty Dolphins was the first match for the Hutt youngsters and given their recent form coupled with the narrow margin of victory in Rotorua last month, the stage was set for an eagerly anticipated and closely contested match.BOP fielded a younger squad for this away game so there was an air of uncertainty amongst the Hutt players as to how they would fare this time around.

The 30 metre pool layout was also likely to dilute the advantages of aggressive fast sprints that had been a hallmark of their previous two outings as a team.The first quarter saw both teams edgy and unsettled with an early ejection taken by BOP and Hutt missing several close shots that all took a rebound off the wood.Paora Morrison positioned in hole, slotted Hutts first ball in the net after the third minute, quickly followed by BOP after Hutt found themselves isolated on the counter attack.By the end of the first quarter the score was even at one goal each with neither side having found an early rhythm to their play.

The game continued throughout the second quarter as an even contest with BOP gaining the upper hand in the goal count.Ben Pye managed to open his goal tally early in the quarter and Evarn Flaunty centred a beautiful backhander into the net from a difficult hole position.However at the half time siren BOP were in front on the scoreboard and Hutt were beginning to think they had their work cut out for themselves.

Eventually they found their rhythm in the 3rd quarter denying BOP any room to manoeuvre on attack.This was frustrating for the younger dolphins who suffered 3 ejection's allowing Hutt to even the score, then go on to add three more to their tally.

Six on fives gave them 3 of the goals, 2 for Pye and another for Morrison, while Scott James took a clean ball unopposed on a possession change resulting in squarely placed shot under no pressure.The end of the third quarter saw a much more settled and confident Hutt team in charge of the game.Although BOP were the first to score in the final quarter Hutt were able to pile on 5 more goals to seal their third Senior mens league victory and place them 4th on the table.

HUTT: 13 P.Morrison (4) B.Pye (4) E.Lui (2) E Flaunty (1) B.Hudson (1) S James (1)
BOP GEYSER DOLPHINS: 5 T.Mutu (3) R.Williams (1) N.Gordan ( 1)

The following morning however was a different story.Against the hugely experienced and senior Mens team from Marist it was always going to be a tough contest.

The first quarter however was a settling in phase for both sides.Opening the game in the shorter and narrower 25 metre pool the Hutt players were swimming fast and giving Marist plenty of work to do, allowing them only a one goal advantage at the quarter siren.However it wasn?t to last for long.Marist found the weaknesses in Hutts game and piled on the goals to put the half time score at 8 goals to 2.

The age and experience of the Auckland squad was becoming very apparent throughout the third quarter; their precision passing and timing on catches was a pleasure to watch, but credit must go to a superbly disciplined Hutt team under such adverse pressure to avoid any ejections in the second half of the game as Marist extended their lead even further sitting on 13 goals to 2 before heading into the forth and final quarter.

Ben Pye managed to fire in two balls before the full time whistle, whilst Jonathan Ware, Andy Holt, Shaun Venter, Mark Collins, and Phil Howat all contributed to Marists? final quarter goal tally, setting the final score at 19 to 4.

Another very valuable learning experience for the Hutt boys and one can only look forward to their participation in the age group youth tournaments later this year.

MARIST MAGIC: 19 P.Howat (4), S.Venter (4), M.Collins (3), J.Ware (3), P.Swindells (2), J.Venter (2) , A. Holt (1)
HUTT: 4 (B.Pye 3, E.Lui 1)
