State League 1 Grand Finals

The 2023/24 summer season ended on Wednesday night with 2 great games of Water Polo being played at Caulfield Grammar.

With many players across all 4 teams backing up from a 4 day trip with their AWL team Victorian Phoenix it was great to see all the athletes back in their club colours.

In the first game of the night in WSL1 Richmond Tigers fell short against Footscray with both clubs trading goals early on before Footscray took control of the match and continued their scintillating finals form running out eventual winners 12 - 5.

Whilst the night belonged to Footscray, Richmond could take some solace in two of their athletes winning individual honours.

Jemma Potts continued her outstanding form which has seen her collect many accolades over the last 18 months winning the Leading Goal Scorer Award with 45 goals from 10 matches.

The MVP and Scarlett Blaze winner of WSL1 was claimed by Zoe Hille. This is the third time Zoe has won this award with wins in 2019, and 2021/22, with Zoe now claiming the honour of being the only 3 time winner of the Scarlett Blaze Award.

The MSL1 Grand Final saw two heavyweights of Victorian Men's Water Polo in Footscray and Melbourne Collegians clash in an outstanding game.

Footscray showed their experience and dominance early skipping out to a comfortable lead through the middle of the game. However the youthful MC team had no intention of lying down going on a run of goals to get within 2, before Footscray again weathered the storm.

They again kicked out to a solid lead, but MC came home with a flurry falling 2 goals short when the final siren sounded going down. Footscray claimed the double in State League 1 winning 12 - 10.

Richmond goal scoring machine Amirali Moradi took home the Leading Goal Scorer Award with 57 going into the back of the net.

Melbourne Collegians young gun Daniel Magasanik earned his first MSL 1 MVP and Scarlett Blaze award for his outstandng season in the pool. We look forward to seeing more from him in the future.

Once again congratulations to all teams that competed in the 2023/24 summer season, Water Polo Victoria looks forward to seeing all of you back in the pool if not in the short winter compettiton then for the revamped summer competition which kicks off in mid-July 2024.
