By | February 23, 2020

The students of University of Bath picked up their first win when Devonport visited the University of Bath Sports Village Pool on Saturday night.

An aging side with just a sprinkling of youngsters, Devonport got off to a storming start which shocked the home side when Sheldon Moll scored for the visitors at the very start of the opening period.

Charlie Tod equalised for the students before James Bowden put the visitors back in front at 2-1, and Moll increased the lead to 3-1 with his second goal.

The home side regained composure through goals by L Davies and Adam Williams, whose home side is in fact Devonport, and his father, John Williams was in goal for Devonport.

Further goals from Davies and Williams saw the students set up a creditable lead at 5-3.

R Adams extended this lead to 6-3 soon after the start of the second period, but Devonport would not give up, and Richard Baker found the back of the let to pull it back to 6-4.

Williams and Allen scored for the university, whilst Baser and young James Coleman kept Devonport in the hunt at 8-6 at the half way stage. But the visitors were tiring.

A further three goals were added for the students in the third period through Williams (2) and Cooper, but Devonport kept in touch with goals by Coleman and Baker.

Devonport were finally put to the sword in the final period where the students added a further four goals to their tally, whilst the visitors could only manage another two from Baker and Bowden.

Cooper, Charlie Tod, Adams and Mueller were the scorers for the home side.

Final score was a creditable 15-10 to University of Bath.
