The Rockets played a hard fought game on Thursday, March 5th, with our team keeping up the fight until the last second. We ended with a 3-4 loss to Kingsway.
We were down a couple of players but managed to talk Trelise from the Wentworth Comets into playing for us.
Our Player of the Day was Timofei which he was very happy about.
Keep up the good teamwork, Rockets!

The Comets had a fantastic game against the Shooting Stars on Thursday, March 5th. There were some excellent team plays and tactics on the court this week with loads of goal opportunities set up, fantastic disruptive play and great pace shown by all. We were a couple of players down so special mention to Sam Carrigan and Theo Colb for stepping in and helping the Comets to reach their first victory of the season, with the final score being 7-1. Scorers were Trelise Morgan-Ward, Sam Carrigan and Jack Roberts. Jack was awarded Player of the Day for his excellent defensive play as well as scoring! Well done Jack.
The Comets came out in good spirits for their first match of the season against Kingsway Flash. They were competitive from the start and really worked as a team to create opportunities to score. We had no subs this week so everyone had to play the full game and keep up momentum throughout. The whole team were fantastic with great defensive skills and plenty of attempts at shooting a hoop. Kingsway took the win with a score of 2-1. It was a tough decision for Player of the Day, which was awarded to Trelise Morgan-Ward for scoring our first points of the season! Go Comets!
Boy, the Wentworth Rockets had a lot to be proud of this week! They won their game on Thursday 27th February, 7-0 – I even took a picture of the scoreboard as proof!
They played like a well-oiled machine. Mr Donovan, whatever training you did on Wednesday, keep it up!
Their teamwork and passing was awesome and our Player of the Day was Sam. I lost count of how many goals he scored but I think it was 5 of the 7!
On Sunday night, this was the final Flippa Ball game for the Year 6 players in the Years 5/6 team. We wish Benjamin Rist, Elijah Kirkpatrick, Hikari Nishihara and Amy Akehurst all the best for their possible transition to Water Polo next year. The Warriors started the game pretty slowly, but by the 2nd half things started to click and more goals began to come our way. The final score was 10-3 to the Warriors. Congratulations to this team who had not lost a game this term and came first in the Term 2 competition. The whole team was named Player of the Day for having an outstanding season.
The Marlins were playing in the final for 1st place on Sunday evening. It was a frantic game with the ball moving quickly from one end of the pool to the other. Neither team was prepared to give ground and fought hard to retain the ball. We drew with this team earlier in the season and drew again in the final with a 1-1 draw. Rather than have a penalty shoot-out both teams agreed that they would share the victory, so both teams came 1st. Player of the Day went to the whole team for a brilliant game.
The Warriors completely dominated this game on Sunday evening. The team invited Alex of the Marlin’s to join them to see some of the differences between the Years 3&4 game and the Years 5&6 game. We played with 4 strikers and 2 defenders, which meant the defenders needed to ensure that the opposition strikers where well marked. Player of the Day was Daniel Chen for good goalkeeping and accurate throwing. The final score was 18-0 to the Warriors.
This was a semi-final game and a real nail biter. We only had 7 players which meant having to make a lot of positional changes. By half time we were 3 points behind at 0-3, and while we had shots at goal we weren’t able to convert them into points. The final score was a draw at 4-4 which was a great comeback! The whole team played superbly with each player owning their position. The outcome for next week’s finals will be based on a points differential. By my calculations both teams have 21 points, however the Marlins have won 5 games and drawn 1, whereas the Swordfish have won 3 and lost 3. Hopefully we march on to the finals. Players of the Day were Daniel Vaudrey for drawing the opposition defender and creating space while in strike, and Mikayla Easton for great defence and generating at least one penalty from the opposition.
On Sunday, September 8th the Warriors started well and the team worked well together, especially in the second half. The score was 12-0 to the Warriors. Player of the Day was Aston Carter for getting into open space and creating shots.
On Sunday, September 8th the Marlin’s team started slowly with some errors in defence leading to a few early goals for Silverdale Swordfish. Some great work by Anna and better marking by defence saw the scores at 3-4 going into the 2nd half. Accurate goal shooting from Alex, Anna and Sam saw the team take the lead in the 2nd half. Good team performance saw the Marlins win the game 7-5.
Player of the Match : Ezrah for his solid defence work in the second half
Player of the Match : Sam for strong attacking in front of goal and good support play.
