Water Polo Districts
The Palmetto Water Polo post-season finally arrived. Palmetto vs Rivera in the semi finals for a rematch. Palmetto went up early and stayed up for the entire game. Rivera had a comeback during the 4th quarter but Palmetto was able to hold it off. We made it to the finals for the first time in my 4 years at Palmetto. It was a great rematch. Head coach of Palmetto, the son of the head coach of Gulliver were going at it again. Before the game, instead of going to our benches are doing our team chants, both teams got together in the center of the pool and yelled out the chant of the club team that we are all on together. The captains of Palmetto and Gulliver got together in the center of both teams and at the end of the chant the refs, coaches and audience all stood up and applauded. The game was close at first. Our plan was to eliminate their top two players and force their weaker players to win the game for them. Unfortunately they were able to do the same thing to us and forced our weaker players to attempt to win the game for us. Palmetto ended up losing the game to Gulliver and got district runner ups. I'm glad I got to play my final game against some of the best friends and wish the best for Gulliver Raiders.
