The Aussie Stingers, Australia’s women’s water polo team, has made it three victories in five days with a 15-6 demolition of Great Britain at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.
The Stingers led 5-3 after the first quarter but it was in the middle half of the game that they showed the dominance they hope will take them to a gold medal at the London Olympic Games later this year.
During that period the Australians piled on eight goals to one including three to tenacious driver Jane Moran. The Queenslander said that second and third quarter onslaught was the key to the victory.
“We had a very solid middle of the game,” Moran said.
“We drew two-all in the last quarter and allowed two pretty weak goals in the first quarter but when we get our heads together like we did in the middle two quarters we are very solid.
“My goals came with help from some really good team play. Our score lines in these three games have been pretty consistent and (now) we really want to focus on getting our defence as strong as possible.”
The fourth test of the series is on Monday night, followed by the final game on Tuesday.
