Jacob Wass and Tom Costello represented North West Region B Team, 14 & under in the ASA Inter Region Division 2 competition held at the Liverpool Aquatic Centre last weekend (26-27 Jan). The boys were up against stiff opposition from Wales, Scotland, East England and Greater London.
On day one North West played Wales first and was narrowly beaten 8-7. In their second game North West had a better game and beat East of England 7-6. The next match was against London who dominated the tournament with the majority of the team part of the Great Britain set up. Tom Costello got his first goal for North West but London cruised to a 11-2 victory. In the final match of the day North West took on Scotland. In this game Jacob and Tom enjoyed more success with Jacob scoring two goals and Tom one goal. North West finished second on day 1 which meant they played in the final against London the following day.
The final was almost a repeat of the meeting the day before with London winning 10-3. Jacob and Tom can be proud of their performance particularly considering they started playing water polo 12-18 months ago. The full results can be seen below.
