The second half saw Watford take the lead at 4-3 beford Hillingdon levelled & then snatched the lead at 5-4 this they held until with only 17 seconds of the game to play that man Dusan scored his fourth of the game & gave his side a well deserved draw at 5-5.
Our second game of the day was against Haringey Aquatics and in a one side first half the team took a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Charles Ryans & Crompton. The second half saw Haringey score early for 2-1 but a strong defence from Watford prevented Haringey from scoring any further goals & then with only 16 seconds of the match to play Crompton put the icing on the cake with his second of the game for a 3-1 win.
Our third game was against league leaders WL Latymer & in a tight first half the teams were level at 1-1 Latymer scored first but Dusan Crompton was at it again with his seventh of the afternoon for 1-1.
