Nottingham canoe polo tournament by Josh Cook
Over the weekend 6 players from LCC have taken part in a friendly tournament down in Nottingham.
On the Saturday the team played 5 games after winning 3 games drawing 1 and losing 1 the team placed third in their group which meant the team wad through to the quarter final play offs.
Sunday morning the quarter final came. After a really hard-fought game losing 1:0 at half time. The team manged an amazing equaliser in the second half with 20 seconds left on the clock!! This meant the game went to golden goal. The team fought hard and after some fantastic defending LCC scored and were through to the semi-final.
LCC put up a stern fight in the semi-final but unfortunately lost the game 3:1. This meant the team went into the third and 4th round placing, so a bronze medal was still all to play for.
LCCs last game came and what a game it was again after going 1:0 down in the first half the team once again fought back hard scoring the equaliser with 1 minute left taking the game to another golden goal!
Filled with confidence the team started off defending under relentless attack. As the game progressed LCC had a number of brilliant efforts on goal. In the final 2 minutes LCC got a long shot off which was then saved and deflected back into LCCs possession, and a blistering goal was scored!! Meaning LCC had secured third place!!
Well done to all for a fantastic weekend off polo.
