League defeat for DWPC Ladies
Dunfermline senior women suffered their 1st league defeat of this season with a 13-8 loss to Edinburgh Uni. With a number of late withdrawals due to injury and illness, the 9 players were facing a tough game against an experienced Uni team.
The game started evenly with Edinburgh Uni's Caitlin Mcrobbie opening the scoring before goals from Hannah and Louise put the home team ahead only for Alison Tate to score the equaliser for the Uni with 2 mins remaining.
The 2nd period was again close with the Uni going 2 goals ahead before Julia scored 2 goals to make it 4-4 at half time.
League Success for DWPC Men
Dunfermline Waterpolo Club Senior Men’s won the Scottish League after battling to a 12-9 victory over bitter rivals Portobello. With both teams having won all their previous league games, this match was effectively the league final with the winner lifting the trophy at the end.
Dunfermline got off to a flying start, going 3 goals up inside the first 3mins thanks to strong goal keeping from Simon Metcalfe and quick counters in attack, with Mark Speed, Ali Campbell and Chris Campbell getting the goals for Dunfermline. Portobello hit back to move within 2 however Matthew Crighton soon converted to restore Dunfermlines 3 goal lead with 2mins remaining in the 1st period. Portobello then started to show their experience and managed to claw 2 goals back to leave the score at 4-3 with 20secs left in the period. With the last attack of the period, Dunfermline managed to draw an exclusion and after a time out called by coach Davie Baxter, Finlay Nesbitt stepped up to score a near post bounce shot with 2secs left on the clock to give Dunfermline a 2 goal advantage going into the 1st break.
