Snow has started to fall which can only mean one thing......WINTER LONDON LEAGUE HAS STARTED!
On Sunday 3rd Jan 13 ICENI players braced the cold and travelled to Whitgift School, on arrival we were greeted by the very impressive flamingoes accompanying the school. Once the team had arrived at the pool it wasn't long before ICENI's loyal supporters and new found fans started to gather in an impressive cheering crowd any sports team would have been happy with. With a great big cheer for ICENI, the players dove into the pool in unison for their first match. ICENI got off to an icy start but managed to stick with it with a respectful score in Match 1.....It was a promising start for youthful ICENI in the 2nd match when we seemed to dominate the pool with defensive skills and tatics for a game our supporters would be proud of...... match 3 was tough with one supporter commenting that they saw more water rugby than polo and lack of training together was evident with Otter's strength taking a firm hold of the game......But that's never stopped ICENI with our motto being 'NEVER GIVE UP'and 'JUST HAVE FUN' we fought the chlorine (although at times it felt like the Chlorine was winning 10 -0 to our opponents and us) and ICENI leapt into the pool with one giant splash as we all woke ourselves up to play the final 4th Match......In true ICENI style we always seem to play at our best when we have worn ourselves out and had a match or two......this match was no exception......ICENI vs. Penguins and we weren't giving away anything....if Penguins wanted a goal they were going to have to fight hard for it...........we an exciting and gripping match, with supporters on the edge of their seats ICENI and Penguins played a brilliant game were both teams showed true water polo skills........unfortunately with a 1-1 score during the game, Penguin managed to slip a goal past us with a score of 2-1 it was a game to be very proud of.
