Jordan Elliot scores 12 as England water polo claim EU nations title!

 

 

Our sponsored Team GB and England Water polo athlete Jordan Elliot contributed 12 of England’s 77 goals at the recent EU nations championships held in the czech republic.

Strong defence saw the team only concede 20 goals in all of their group stage matches, topping the table and getting them into the final against South Africa.

Swim England Water polo had this summary of the final performance;

After a tight first quarter which ended 2-2, England then took control with Tom Curwen scoring a second quarter hat-trick to ensure an 8-3 lead at the break.

And there was no way back for South Africa as England scored six more in the third and fourth quarters to seal a 14-6 victory.

England skipper Rob Parker said: “It’s been a really, really good tournament. It really came together this week. Our defence was solid the whole time, we controlled teams and that was our game plan right from the start.” 

Our athlete Jordan Elliot had this to say: “Great tournament with us being unbeaten and 12 goals for myself from 5 games. Looking bright for the future.”
