Avondale 6 - Beckenham 7 (London League 8th September 2008)

The South London Correspondent is still away!

Matt Jeffrey had this to say about the game: "After a furious start where we went 3-1 down, things settled into a tight game with a lot of swimming (mainly by the opposition). Titanium Pete lived up to his name by making some fantastic saves, whilst up front, Milan took on the mantle of 'Shooter' and put away a couple of scintillating long shots. In the end we fought back to 6-7 but did not have enough time on the clock to put away an equaliser. A fine team performance - pity about the result!"

Triathlon Sunday - 7th September 2008

Avondale Water Polo club made it's first serious foray into the now very popular world or Triathlons. Maarten (44th) and Jonnie (11th) took part in the Mens Fitness Roughtrack Triathlon at Dorney Lake near Windsor and Peter (62nd), Dave (229th) and Matt (219th) ventured rather further afield to compete in the Helvellyn Trithlon in the Lake District.

Suffice to say that Avondale finished as the top Water Polo Club in the Helvelly Triathlon (top 3 finishers count)! Now don't they look like they were enjoying themselves!
