Inferno out full force at the Paul Taylor Memorial Tournament!
Submitted By Calin Dragoiescu on Sun 02 07, 16
KW Water Polo had 6 teams competing across 4 divisions during PTMT in Etobicoke on January 30/31.

Our U10 team competed in their second major tournament in back to back weekends.  This group was challenged by the all deep water fields of play at the Olympium and longer game times.  These athletes put forth a great effort  to overcome this test.  Each player demonstrated great determination which will serve them well in the years to come.  AWESOME WORK TEAM!!!
We had two teams competing in the U12 division.  Our junior team (KW Red) lost their first two games putting them in the relegation round where they dropped their first match by one goal versus Hammer and won their second match decidedly against Guelph.  Great work team against these older more experienced opponents!!  Our senior team (KW Black) was dominant in the U12 division going undefeated and being named tournament champs!  IMPRESSIVE & Congratulations!!
We also had two teams competing in the U14 Boys division.  KW Black went 2 and 2 for the tourney dropping games to KW Red & Ottawa Titans while defeating Mavericks and Shadow.  KW Red went 3 and 1 on the weekend losing only to the Ottawa Titans by a one goal margin securing the silver position for this division.  Great effort and performances by both teams!!!
Our U14 girls competed in the High School Girls division with assistance from our U16 players, Dora, Sofia and Jovana who graduated U14 last season. Our young team did exceptional in this division going 2W-1L-1T for the event claiming the silver medal position.  Their loss took place against a more experienced Mavericks team made up of several NCL players including KW Water Polo's own, Taylor, who shut the door on our offense with her exceptional net minding performance.  Our girls showed determination and strength in battling these larger and more experienced opponents.
The fact that we had 6 teams competing in this event is a testament to the strength of our growing club and a compliment to the key contributors of the club including the board of directors, coaches, managers and member families.   Coach Glen was put to the test balancing 22 games and over 50 players over the two day event.  Thank you for your tireless commitment!  Also thank you to Aleah, Ryan, Dijanna and Adrian who assisted Glen in leading our teams at this successful event.
