Tyldesley 14s Team end on a high 7th December 2014. Tyldesley Swimming and Water Polo Club 14s water polo team ended their 2014 season with an impressive win over the Manchester & District 14s League winners Stretford. Stretford took an early lead at the start of the 1st quarter but goals from Aaron Royle 2, Stephanie Whittaker and Emmie Rose Eastwood put Tyldesley in the lead by 4 goals to 2 by the end of the quarter. In the 2nd quarter Tyldesley could not find a way past Stretford’s shallow end goalkeeper but Tyldesley’s defence ensured that Tyldesley were leading by 4 goals to 3 at the end of the quarter. The third quarter was again very close but Tyldesley manage to increase their lead to 8 goals to 6 with goals from Joshua Dunkerley, Emmie, Kyle Harrison and Ethan Brooks. In the final quarter Stretford threw everything at Tyldesley but it took them 3 and a half minutes to break down Tyldesley’s defence and reduce Tyldesley’s lead to 1 goal.  A goal by Emmie restored Tyldesley’s lead to 2 but 10 seconds later Stretford scored again.  The remaining minutes were very tense with possession changing from one team to the other.  In a final last ditch attempt the Stretford coach called a time-out with just 2.7 seconds left on the clock but it was to no avail and Tyldesley became the worthy winners of the match by 9 goals to 8. A great game of water polo by both teams. Tyldesley team:  Ethan Brooks, Joshua Dunkerley, Emmie Rose Eastwood, Paige Evans, David Gaskell, Kyle Harrison, Liam Harrison, Macauley Harrison, Charlotte Leakey, Matthew Roberts, Aaron Royle (captain), Stephanie Whittaker.
