Both Stingers A and B fought hard last night in round 5 of the NSW water polo metropolitan league against Parramatta in the M6 and M7 league. Stingers B played first, with some fantastic goals scored by Hagen Jewel, Luke Kelly and Tim Medway, but these weren't enough in the end to overcome a strong Parramatta team. Final game score 3-11.
Stingers A suffered a similar fate in the next game, breaking their winning streak to come out with a 4-7 loss. The longer pool took its toll on the team, however defence was still strong throughout the game.
Next week Stingers A play Icebergs at Ryde Aquatic Centre at 8pm, with Stingers B playing the SNB Breakers at 7:15pm at the same venue.
