Cambridge win in water polo amid controversy

Ian Cooper 7 November 2013

The Blues beat King’s College London in controversial circumstances on Friday. With space limited in a narrow KCL pool, the game quickly became physical.

Despite this, Cambridge started strongly. Gormally opened the scoring, and goals from Walton and Walker quickly put the Blues in a dominant position. Their pressing game, coupled with incisive counter-attacks, forced KCL into a number of mistakes and negated the home side’s goal-threat. In the second half, this strategy yielded three more goals, ending the contest. But the real drama was to still to come. In the last minute, Gormally was punched and the game was abandoned following a spate of fights in the water.

For Cambridge, it is hoped that Friday night in A&E will be as bruising as their season gets.
