The third week of wa­ter polo kicked off on Fri­day night with some close games and un­ques­tion­able wins.

Start­ing the night off saw Or­cas take on Pi­ra­nhas, with the for­mer play­ing their most con­sis­tent game yet and scor­ing two goals per quar­ter.

With a fi­nal score of 8-4, Or­cas could not keep up with the Pi­ra­nhas struc­ture.

Erin Bri­erly and Alexan­dra Mo­tus ended the game as best play­ers for Pi­ra­nhas and Kath­eryn Fisher do­ing the Or­cas proud.

The first men’s game saw the White Point­ers take on Drag­ons, and with no Steve Smirke Point­ers man­aged to come out with a win.

White Point­ers proved too strong and drowned the Drag­ons 8-4.

Noel Mor­ri­son was the sole goal scorer for the Drag­ons, while Jared Ah­lers, Bradley Horse­man and Brad Pawlenko were the high scor­ers for White Point­ers.

The sec­ond women’s game of the night saw a tight af­fair be­tween Aztecs and Vipers.

A slow start from the Vipers saw Aztecs scor­ing three goals in the first quar­ter mak­ing the game look like a wipe-out, how­ever, they came back with a vengeance in the sec­ond half.

The Mell­berg sis­ters shone with Tara scor­ing four and Tess scor­ing three.

To end the night Black­stars drowned the com­pos­ite team, fin­ish­ing with a win of 6-2.

It was not the best game this week for the com­pos­ite team as they missed shots and spent a lot of the night swim­ming.

Black­stars’ Reece Cir­ulis and Ethan Smith pock­eted a goal each while Nathan Groch and Brad Horse­man of the com­pos­ite team were the lead­ing goal scor­ers for the side.
