Jaws and the Sea Serpents finished the opening half of the Orange Aquatic Centre Water Polo Competition in winning fashion last week, the junior division of the league has now broken for the Christmas break.

Jaws claimed a narrow 7-5 win over the Dugongs while the Sea Serpents thumped Sharknados 7-0.

The former was a come-from-behind win too. After being deadlocked 2-2 at quarter-time, the Dugongs led 4-3 at the main break.

Jaws pegged that back, squaring the ledger in the third term before securing the victory with a 2-0 fourth quarter.

Because of the abundance of Kinross students playing in the senior competition as well, teams will face-off in friendlies on Thursday afternoon.

That comes after Jets held on for a thrilling 5-3 win over Dynocrocs last week, a strong, 3-1 second half sealing it.

The Orcas also scored a stunning, 16-0 thumping of Team 7. Hamish Corcoran found the back of the net seven times, while Charles Jenkins scored six goals as well.

Piranhas and Lifeguards also secured victories last week.

The former trumped Hydras 6-4 while Lifeguards took down Spooners 7-3. Lifeguards took a 3-0 lead into half-time, although Spooners lifted they held on.
