Sydney Uni women’s water polo team remains undefeated in the Metropolitan First Grade competition after a hard fought 6-4 defeat of Drummoyne on Saturday.

Despite being down a key forward player, Uni held up well under pressure after Drummoyne started stronger and took an early lead.

Lea Barta continues to impress in goal, while timely goals were scored by Emily Scott and Gabby Wikman as the girls did enough to remain undefeated.

“I’m pleased with the way that the team is developing, but as we head into the final rounds and towards the finals, we will need to concentrate on improving our tactics and special plays,” Coach Ian Trent.

Sydney Uni currently sits clear on top of the ladder, with Balmain and Drummoyne in second and third place.

This week’s game is against Balmain at 12.30pm on Saturday at Dawn Fraser Pool, Balmain.
