2013 NZWP Calendar Alterations and Addition
In an effort to keep players playing water polo beyond the under 18 age grade level, NZWP has made the following changes to the 2013 calendar
It is hoped that these new initiatives will mean that those players that do not normally play National League after under 18 will continue to be involved in the future.

Saturday 13th October
It was always going to be a tough final for the Marist boys as our games against North Harbour throughout the year had been very close. Our boys started off well and at half-time there was only one goal in it with North Harbour leading 5-4. Unfortunately the second half brought too many careless errors from our boys and Harbour capitalised on these. The final score was 9-5 to North Harbour which meant, like the girls, the boys ended up with the silver medal. Goal scorers were Matt (2), Lachie, Braeden and Jeremy. Congratulations to Matt for being awarded an Outstanding Player award. For Liam, Jeremy, Chris Watson, Jeff, Ben, Lachie, Peter, Mayan, Matt and Braeden, this was their last age group Nationals - hopefully we will continue to see many of them in the pool next year. Thanks to Jono and Tim for the great work that they do in their coaching roles and a very big good luck wish to all of the boys for 2013. ...C.Lewis
Friday 12th October
What a day! Our boys had to face Tauranga twice today. It was officially two semi finals that became eight quarters and effectively one game, something that none of our boys had experienced before. At the end of the morning game the score stood at 11-7 to Marist. When both teams returned to the pool in the afternoon, this was the score that went back on the scoreboard. Tauranga was determined to close the gap and the first three quarters were tied with the scoreboard reading 16-12 to Marist going into the fourth. We showed our fitness and determination with five goals to Tauranga's one and, as the final whistle blew, we had earned ourselves a final's berth tomorrow with a 21-13 semi final victory. Goal scorers across the two games were Braeden (6), Lachie and Matt (5), Phillip (2), Chris Watson, Liam and Ben. Our defence was very solid today with many impressive steals and blocks. Denzel was his reliable self in goal and managed to psyche out a Tauranga player as he faced Denzel and dropped the ball, failing in his attempt to put away a 5 metre penalty! Over the two games, Matt made four blocks and five steals, Jeremy made three steals and one block, Braeden two blocks and Lachie two steals - an excellent team effort! Come and support our boys - Denzel, Matt, Chris Watson, Liam, Jeremy, Chris Cormack, Lachie, Braeden, Jeff, Ben, Phillip, Peter and Mayan - as they play North Harbour A in tomorrow's U18 Men's final, 4.30pm at MISH. GO MARIST!!!!! ...C.Lewis
Thursday 11th October
The boys had their first game against Hutt this morning. Our Marist boys lead throughout the game, with quarter time scores being 3-1; 5-4; 8-5; 11-7. Goal scorers were Braeden (4), Matt (2), Liam, Chris Watson, Phillip, Ben and Jeff. This win made us B1, pitching against A4, Waikato, in the evening. It was a fun game, played in good spirits, with goals being shared amongst the team. The good news is that apart from Denzel, who was strong in goal, all team members scored in today's games. Marist took out the match 21 - 5. We play our two semis against Tauranga tomorrow, the first being at 11.50am and the second at 4.30pm, both at West Wave. The second lot of semis will be between North Harbour and Hutt. Good luck to our boys in their bid to reach Saturday's final. ...C.Lewis
Wednesday 10th October
Today the U18 Nationals got under way and our boys had two games. The first was against HCMO, a combined team from Harbour City, Marist and Otago. There were four Marist boys who featured in this team - Hamish MacDonald, Conrad Smith, Liam and Connor Paterson, all of whom played very well and were a great asset to the HCMO team. Our boys got off to a very shaky start - some bad passes and a lack of structure meant that they were scoreless at the end of the first quarter and had only scored two goals at half time. They managed to lift their game slightly in the second half, scoring three goals in each quarter, finishing with an 8-3 win. Goal scorers were Chris Cormack and Ben Young (2), Liam Scarborough, Lachie Kermode. Phillip Hargraves and Jeremy Hunt.
Our second game was against North Harbour B and in this game we got off to a 3-0 start within the first three minutes. It was the third quarter that let us down this time, only being able to put away 2 out of 8 attempts at goal. The final quarter saw Liam, Chris Watson and Lachie all make good steals, followed up by strong 5 metre penalty by Matt Lewis with thirty seconds to go. Goal scorers for this game were Braeden Drennan and Matt (3), Chris Cormack (2), Ben, Lachie and Chris Watson. The final score was an 11-8 win to Marist. Let's hope that with each game from now on our boys can go from strength to strength, play as a team and put away the goals. ...C.Lewis
2012 Auckland League
Friday 14th September (Final)
Close, but not Close Enough ...
What a final! At the end of full time, the score between Marist and North Harbour A was locked at 7-7. Marist fought until the very end and despite 3 goals each by Matt Lewis and Chris Cormack, a final 6 on 5 to Harbour in the last 25 seconds, resulting in a goal, gave North Harbour the win that both teams were fighting for. As the whistle blew for full time, the score was 10-9 to North Harbour, resulting in a silver medal for our boys. This will make them train and play harder at Nationals in a few weeks in order to earn that National title that they are seeking. ...C.Lewis
Sunday 9th September (semi final result)
The U18 Men's Red team faced North Harbour B in their semi final. It was initially a closely fought out affair with our boys being only just up 4-3 at half-time. The first half lacked a little in structure and defence but fortunately this came right in the second half where we scored 6 goals to Harbour's 2, making the final score 10-5 to Marist. It was a real team effort with goals being scored by Phillip Hargraves, Chris Cormack, Jeff Hemus, Braedan Drennan, Ben Young, and Matt Lewis. One of Chris' goals was a 5 metre which was executed in text book style and a delight to watch! There were also some fine steals from Braeden and Matt which in turn set up some fine goals. The second semi was between North Harbour A and Waitakere and our boys will face the winner of this game next weekend in the final. ... C.Lewis
Sunday 2nd September
The U18 Red Men's team played two games this weekend, the first against North Harbour A which is always a hard fought out affair. The Marist boys found themselvs down 0-2 quite early on in the first quarter but fortunately 2 quick goals by Matt Lewis brought the score back to 2-2. It was goal for goal for the rest of the match, the final scoore being a 6-6 draw. Ben Young also scored 2 goals and Jeff Hemus and Phillip Hargraves scored one each. Denzel had a very good fourth quarter, blocking 4 North Harbour attempts at goal.
Today's game was against Waitakere and it was not the prettiest of games, but it was a win. Our boys made the most of the regular Waitak goalie not playing today and managed to put away 17 goals, compared to Waitak's 6. Jeff top scored with 4 goals and Peter Burrell played well on attack and defence, making 3 good steals. We now wait to hear when our semifinal game is next weekend and who we face....C.Lewis
Saturday 25th August
What an awesome start to the league with a 5-3 win to Marist against Waitakere! – especially since we were not carrying our full complement (down by 3) due to injury.
Andrew French had a blinder in goal saving 6 attempts, making 3 steals and only conceding 3 goals. These are big boots to fill for whoever becomes our permanent goalie. Thanks again Frenchy for standing in to help the team out.
Jarred Durling had a solid game scoring 3 of the 5 goals, with Conrad Smith and Mayan Salama getting one apiece.
Well done guys – keep it up. ...A.Paterson
Saturday 25th August
The U18 Men's Red team has played 2 games over the past 4 days. The first was against their felloiw club mates, Marist Blue. After a good, hard fought battle, the final score was 13-8 to Marist Red. Top goal scorer for the Red team was Matt Lewis with 4 goals. Other goal scorers were Liam Scarborough, Chris Cormack, Lachie Kermode, Ben Young and Phillip Hargraves. For the Blue team Peter Burrell top scored with 2 goals, one of which would have to have been the goal of the match, assisted by fellow goal scorers Sam Fleming, Mayan Salama, Reuben Puketapu and Max Philips-Rudowski.
Their second game was against North Harbour B with a similar end result of a 12-8 win to Marist. Goal scorers were Matt (4), Lachie (2), Liam (2), Chris (2), Peter Burrell and Ben Young. Once again, Denzel had a strong game in goal. It has been a good start to the season and the boys are looking forward to upcoming games. ...C.Lewis
Tuesday 10th July
As hard as our U18 Men tried their utmost to win themselves a bronze medal tonight, it just was not meant to be unfortunately. Finding themselves down 1-6 at half time, it was an uphill battle from thereon in but they proved themselves to be true fighters winning the second half 4-2. The final score was 8-5 to New South Wales. Goal scoreres for Marist were Matt (2), Ben, Braeden and Jeff. A big thank you to Jono for his coaching expertise and all the Marist supporters who came out and cheered on our boys. Roll on Pan Pacs 2014 - we will be fighting to win that Gold once again!! ... C.Lewis
Tuesday 10th July
Our U18 Men's Red team battled hard this morning against Corona Del Mar (CDM Polo 1) in what proved to be a close and tight semi final. Unfortunately it was not enough for our boys and CDM came away victors with an 8-6 win. Braeden had a fantastic first half, scoring 4 fabulous goals. Unfortunately he was out on three in the second half and the rest of the team stepped up, with goals being scored by Peter and Matt. Denzel goes from strength to strength with every game that he plays and once again he blocked some vital attempts at goal. As disappointed as they are at not making the final our boys are now determined to go out strong in their bronze medal match at 6.15pm at West Wave in order to gain Marist another Pan Pacs medal. Allez, Allez!!! ... C.Lewis
Monday 9th July
The Marist U18 Men's Red team had another great game in their quarter final against Queensland today. They were down 3-5 at half time and came out fighting hard in the second half, scoring 6 goals to Queensland's 2, securing our boys a 9-7 win! Jeremy and Matt top scored with 3 goals each, Braeden scored 2 and Jeff 1. Denzel made 2 strong saves in each quarter showing his reliability and consistency. The boys now move on to a semi final tomorrow morning, 10am against Corona del Mar (1) at West wave. ...C.Lewis
Sunday 8th July
It was a much more fired up and focused team that took to the water today. The U18 Men's Red team was determined to avenge their loss from last night and showed the strong play that we are used to seeing. Their first game was a 16-5 win over Corona del Mar 3. Matt, Jeff and Jeremy lead the steals with 2 each and the goal scorers were Matt (6), Ben (3), Jeremy (2), Chris, Peter, Lachie, Braeden and Jeff. The second game this evening was against Golden Hawks (Harbour City) and our boys came away with a 10-2 win. Matt had a great game and was on fire with his shooting, scoring 8 of the goals. Jeremy and Chris were the other goal scorers. Denzel was strong in goal and made some athletic saves in both games. The boys now have their quarter final tomorrow afternoon. ... C.Lewis
Sunday 8th July
The team had a great game this morning winning the game 35-2!
Coach Bence commented that the boys worked better today ‘as a team’, lots of communication and passing.
Callum (3) was top goal scorer putting 7 in the back of the net, followed by Ben (5), Phillip (11) and Tim (12) all scoring 5 apiece.
Liam (6) and Phillip (11) had an awesome defensive game, both making 7 steals each.
We are into the semi-finals now playing off for 9th – 12th place.
Game was played at West Wave @ 10.15am – Sunday 8th July ... A.Paterson
Saturday 7th July
Our U18 Red Men's team has just played a game against Waitakere that they would probably sooner forget. Our boys came out rather casually against a team that fought hard and were hungry for a win. It was a 3-7 loss, our three goals being scored by Ben, Braeden and Matt. On way too many occasions the ball failed to find the back of the net. Our boys are now determined to put this loss behind them and once again return to their winning ways. Good luck boys in your two games tomorrow - play hard! ... C.Lewis
Saturday 7th July
9-5 was the final score of Game 3. It was a slow start to the game with Harbour scoring 6 of the 9 goals in the first half.
We came back in the last half of the game, winning the third quarter 2-1 and keeping the final quarter even at 1 all.
Again Chris Cormack (10) had another solid game scoring 4 of the 5 goals, the other being scored by Tim Tolley (12).
Goalie, Andrew French saved another 9 goals. This 14 year old is having an awesome tournament. ... A.Paterson
Saturday 7th July
The Marist Red U18 Men played their first game of the tournament this morning and came away with an 19-2 win against El Dorado Black. Pool time was shared evenly between all team members in a game where everyone made valuable contributions. Ben lead with 4 steals, Matt with 6 assists and Lachie with 4 goals. Other goal scorers were Matt (3), Chris (3), Ben (3), Jeremy (2), Jeff, Peter, Braeden and Jono. Their next game is at 8.45pm against Waitakere this evening. ...C.Lewis
Friday 6th July
Game 2 of the tournament was not as successful as the first, with a loss to Canberra Academy of 13-7.
Coach Bence put this down to our lads perhaps being ‘psyched out’ by the size of the opposition!
This loss however did not reflect the enthusiasm of the team both in the water and on the bench.
The points scorers in this game came from Connor (9) and Liam (6) – 2 apiece, with Callum (3), Ben (5) and Phillip (11) also scoring.
Goalie – Andrew French played another solid game saving 9 attempts at goal, with 2 of those being 5m’s!! This made his THIRD 5m save today!!
Keep up the good work boys.
Game was played at MISH @ 7.45pm – Friday 6th July ... A.Paterson
Friday 6th July
What an awesome start to the U18 division of the 2012 Pan Pac’s!!
Our first game was against CDM Polo 2 resulting in a win to us, 9-5.
#10 – Chris Cormack was on fire, scoring 5 of the 9 goals, with #11 – Phillip Hargraves making 6 steals.
Goalie – Andrew French also had a blinder of a game saving 9 attempts at goal by CDM – one being a 5m!
This win was with the team not quite full strength with 3 players down – imagine what we can do when everyone is one board.
Coach – Bence Valyi was very impressed with the team’s play for our first game playing together – Long may it last.
Game was played at MISH @ 10.15am on Friday 6th July ... A.Paterson
