Serbia dominates SA water polo team


Team South Africa suffered a massive 13-1 defeat against the Serbians in in their first Pool C match which took place at the Hsinchu Country Natatoruin in Taipei, Taiwan on Friday afternoon, 18 August 2017.

Pool C has been coined the “pool of death” by many, consisting of some of the top playing water polo nations in the world, namely Serbia, Canada and Hungary. Team South Africa scored a consolation goal through a power play by Jason Evezard and despite the 13-1 loss against Serbia, Coach Vaughn Marlow was not too taken aback by this. According to Marrow, “This is the strongest side Serbia has ever brought to the tournament, and are current Olympic champions.”

Serbia were the game favourites going into the game and South Africa was not expected to defeat the team. Team SA’s main goal was to improve their play and reduce errors, which was achieved by the team. Coach Marrow is happy from a coaching perspective.

The first three pool games are not elimination games. South Africa is required to finish as high as they can to get an easy fixture in the last sixteen round. And with this said, they will be looking to do well in the next two matches with the hopes of playing either Great Britain or France in the last sixteen.

Next fixture: 20 August 2017, South Africa v Canada, Hsinchu Country Natatoruim, 14h20 (08h20, South African time).
