‘It was a bit of a walk-over really,’ said referee Daniel de Oliveira, ‘and a bit of a grudge match too, between the two swimming clubs.
It was fast and furious, and very physical.
There are good swimmers on both sides so there was a lot of white water in the pool!’ With their wealth of experience in the sport, Tigers led from the start, and stayed ahead all the way, although in the second half JSC started to gain some control.
‘JSC’s Dom Sanchez played epecially well and scored four of their goals, and Nick Dotter, the president of the association got two, and triathlete Scott Pitcher got one,’ de Oliveira said.
But the undoubted top scorer was Nat Snook, Tigers’ captain who scored half a dozen, with elder brother Doc putting five past the JSC ‘keeper.
‘It was a good match.
Tigers have the strongest team in the league but JSC never gave up, they did themselves proud,’ de Oliveira said.
