Water polo season returned to Hedland last week, with three out of four scheduled games played.

The women’s Piranhas v Aztecs game was forfeited, which resulted in the Orcas and Vipers being the only women’s teams, who drew 4-4.

Helena Djiagween, Kat Fisher and Timara Simpson were named best women’s players in the pool.

Women’s water polo player Amy-Jayne Ryan said the weather worked in the teams’ favour and the teams had a successful return.
