To our U/12 Waterpolo team that had such a great tournament in the first ever National U/12 competition in the NAC.
Our first match was against Clontarf and after the nerves settled our team played a great game, ultimately finishing 5-2 in Clontarfs favour.
Our 2nd match was against Ballina. Kells settled down well and had a great win with the final score Kells - 6 Ballina - 0.
Then things started to get interesting. As runners up in our group we played Bangor Predators. After a very close match both sides finished 4 apiece. So, onto our first ever penalty shoot out. The pressure was really on. It all came down to the very last penalty and we were soooo unlucky to be beaten by one penalty.
As a result our final match was against Clonard. Another Belfast team. Having just 1 sub throughout, our guys were pretty tired and after another great performance we finished 2-2.
Long day. The ultimate final was between Clontarf ( who pipped us in the first match ) and Predators who beat us on penalties !!!!
