Northwood 1st Waterpolo Achieves Historic Win vs Clifton

Northwood 1st team waterpolo played Clifton on Monday 16 February as the fixture for the weekend had been postponed due to the Northwood team being on Tour in the Eastern Cape for the Vides waterpolo tournament.

The Northwood team has been gaining confidence after their recent tours to the Grey Bloem Itec Waterpolo tournamnet and the Vides waterpolo tournament hosted in Bloemfontein and East London respectively.

The match was played at Clifton and started well with good attacking opportunities being created on both ends of the pool. Clifton opened the scoring to lead 1-0 after 2 minutes, Northwood replied on the next attack. Both teams exchanged blows and at the end of the 1st chukka the score was tied at 2 all.

The second Chukka was the ultimate game changer again, Clifton converted first to take the lead but during the Chukka Northwood put 3 consecutive goals in while Clifton ended strong with the score 5-4 in favour of Northwood.

The 3rd chukka was even at 1 a piece with tactical time outs being called on both sides. Northwood lead going into the 4th Chukka 6-5.

In the last chukka Northwood showed composure by slowing down the game and running down the clock. Clifton converted to take us to 6 all. Again the young Northwood team fought tenaciously for every scrap and took the score to 8-6 with 1 min 30 seconds on the clock. Clifton pushed us all the way to the end and were rewarded with a goal in the dying seconds to pull the score to 8-7 in favour of Northwood.

Goal scorers for Northwood were:

Justin Snyman 2 goals

Mark Fourche 2 goals

Ryan Symington 2 goals

Criag Van Leeuwen 1 goal

Stratten Kennedy 1 goal

The coach of Northwood Waterpolo, Mr Hadyn Skinner, says “This is a remarkable victory for Northwood as after my appointment at Northwood in 2014 our 1st game was against Clifton where we lost 23-2. The team has been hard at work and will continue to push moving forward. We respect the Clifton waterpolo team immensely, we were just lucky to have our day yesterday”.

Northwood Basketball vs Clifton 14/02/15

Opposition :Clifton

Date            :14th February

Venue         :Northwood

Score          :Northwood 56 Clifton 23

Coach         :Nhlanhla Bulose

It was a slow start for both teams in the first quarter resulting in an 8 point a piece score. The overcast and windy conditions got to the better of us, so our shooting was not accurate. An epic defence lead by captain Nkanyiso Ntombela in the second and third quarter reduced Clifton from scoring and we kept the ball very well. Quick passing and penetration resulted in us scoring frequently and Clifton had no option but to foul often. There were some 3 pointers by Jason Daniels that added a little pressure on the score for the visiters who also had no answers to the aggression showed by Northwood.

Northwood Open Day and Open Evening 2015

Last week, Tuesday 10th and Thursday 12th of February saw Northwood host our annual Open Day for grade 7 boys from surrounding primary schools, as well as prospective parents at our Open Evening.

The grade 7 boys were shown around the school’s facilities to see all that we had to offer, and were also able to participate in a typical Northwood tradition;  war cry practice!

For our Open Evening, each subject set up a display stand which gave  parents a chance to see some of the work our students do on a daily basis, as well as chat to the teachers about Northwood’s academic programme, and what to expect when their boys arrive in 2016.

Thank you to the North Durban Community for showing your support for Northwood, we are proud to be the boys high school of choice for our area!
