London Borough of Barnet Water Polo Team – Silver Medalist’s London Youth Games 2018
14 London boroughs entered this year’s competition & Barnet were drawn in Grp C alongside Harrow, Hillingdon & Lewisham.
The team won all three of their group games beating Harrow 9-2. Hillingdon 8-1 & Lewisham 14-0.
The eleven other boroughs were split into three Gourps as follows:
Grp A – Greenwich, Hackney, Hammersmith & Fulham & Southwark
Grp B – Croydon, Enfield & Wandsworth
Grp D – Bromley, Ealing & Harringey
The top four teams in each group would progress into the semi-finals & the four teams to make the semi-finals alongside Barnet were Southwark, Croydon & Bromley.
Barnet made the final after beating Croydon in the semi-finals but faced Southwark who had won their three group games scoring 44 goals without conceding.
In a tense final Barnet just came up short and finished with Silver, it was a great effort by all players & coach Aram Eidipour.
