Draw for SA in China
- Updated: July 21, 2011
Our South African women’s water polo have bounced back with a bang at the 14th FINA World Championships in Shanghai, China.
After being on the receiving end of two big defeats by the host nation China and then Italy, the girls showed great resilience to share the spoils 9-9 with Cuba on Thursday.
A measure of just how tight the match was can be seen by the fact that no one side dominated any of the four quarters. The first quarter ended 3-3, and the score for the next three quarters was 1-1, 1-1 and 4-4.
Top scorer for South Africa was Lee Harris who has now scored in all of South Africa’s three matches. In their first match they went down 5-22 to China and then lost 2-18 to Italy.
On Thursday she netted on five occasions. Adding to the SA goal tally were goals from Joan Barretto who got two, Anne Keet and Jemma Dendy Young
For their turn, Cuba had gone down 6-19 to China and 4-12 to Italy in earlier Group D matches.
