With multiple players only recently making their return after isolation or injury, the King's Premier Water Polo team had a couple of tough matches on its hands over the weekend.

KC vs Westlake
Friday 25 February
Home

Despite a 5–2 lead at half time, King's Premier Water Polo's first home game in school history ended with a 7–9 loss.

Having six athletes return on the day of the match after bouts of COVID-19 or injury proved a major obstacle in playing a sport widely regarded as the world's most difficult.

Ethan Watson had 4 goals, Toby Tasker 2 and Min Chan Kim 1 in the effort.

Sunday 27 February
Away

Again, in a gutsy effort with negligible cardio fitness, King's saw another difficult match.

Personnel issues will be a feature of this season, but, that's the same for every team this year.

Despite getting 19 shots away, only 4 found the back of the net. Leading 2–1 at the half, the hosts were able to have a more consistent attack and take advantage of a drop in vigour from the King's men.


With the team mostly back and able to train aggressively now, we are excited for a good second half of the season.

Looking ahead, the Premier team hosts the Jackson-Venter Cup vs Saint Kentigern College at 6.45pm on Friday night at King's.
