DVE Aquatic juniors clean sweep of gold

Saturday and Sunday 23rd and 24th of September saw DVE Aquatic 12/u mixed and 14/u boy’s team win Gold at the inaugural Monash Water Polo club Ballarat Tournament.

20 DVE players competed including 2 of our girls Stephanie Jacobson and Billie Gifford.  The girls played with the Essendon team, as we just didn’t quite have enough for our own girl’s team.  Both girls played major parts and helped get Essendon to the Grand Final.

Highlights include how well our kids played.  The teamwork and the camaraderie was fantastic given we had 7 players in the 12/u and one 14/u who had never played before.   Parents also got to meet each other and formed a support group to rival AFL club Richmond……..you might have heard of them!

We had a great night on Saturday night with BBQ at the indoor go Kart track put on by Monash and 3 games of lazer tag.

Steph and Billie, scary on the go-kart track…….even scarier is the thought of what if Tess Haslam was there too……..

Sunday morning BBQ Bacon and Eggs was yum again put on by Monash.

In the end 12/u beat the combined Monash/Geelong team in a tight one 3 -2

Great coaching………..from the 14/u boys ably supported by vocal parents in very close proximity through out the weekendJ

12/u Team:

Ben Wolczko                Max Brown                   Ella May Brown         Josh Rotin

Liam Niceforo             Ethan Niceforo             Zoe Basile        Cameron Mcleod

Jacob Geange-Phipps                           Aiden Jacobson        

 Mitchell  McQuire                                  William Schofield       

Some highlights of this team:  our 2 girls Ella May and Zoe…..don’t mess with these DVE girls!!  7 New players in bold.  Liam Niceforo the 3rd of the clan to play at about 2 foot six tall shot a goal.  And 6-year-old Charlie nearly got in as he was in our corner with a DVE cap on.  Great job by all the kids!!!!!!!!!!

14/u Boys Team:

Spencer Waymire       Blake Smith                   Callyn Fenwick – Kearns

Koby Gilchrist               Damien Pezzi                Christian Schofield

William Schofield        Aiden Jacobson            Josh Rotin

Ethan Niceforo

Just great to watch the older boys playing so well.  The awareness, teamwork quick movement of the ball to the next option, skill level was fantastic.  Luke our goalkeeper went down at the last minute with Flu and couldn’t make it but new guy Spencer took up the challenge to a large degree and did a fine job.  Young gun Blake Smith played with that DVE intensity and smarts he has picked up from playing 16/u.  While the 4 big boys controlled everything

We had to top up this team with 4 12/u who were getting some great lessons from the older boys by watching how they go about it.

A fantastic weekend overall for DVE Water Polo.  My thanks to Jamie Rotin and Anna Schofield for Team Managing 12/u and 14/u respectively and to all the parents who supported and pitched in……….Mind you, with me having to ref a few games that clashed with my coaching of both teams, the 14/u boys did a great job……….just as well they new what they were doing when they were playing as the fill in coaches of John Schofield, Vince Niceforo and Mick Jacobson had no ideaJ

DV…………..E!
