19/11/2015 After beating Bradford on Avon recently by a large margin, Frome water polo club travelled to Marlborough college on Saturday afternoon to play in the final of the Bristol and West Handicap Cup.
Frome have had quite a bit of success in this cup and have been runners up several times over the last few years. The other finalists, Bristol Harlequins were to start the game with a 13 goal lead based on current form and league position.
The game started well for Frome as Martyn Hodges scored in the first few seconds, Frome then went on to score twice more in the first quarter. The goal scoring then slowed a little during the middle stages of the game and after conceding a few goals to Bristol we still had a 9 goal difference at half time which by any team's standards was probably too big an ask on the day.
Although the final result was disappointing for Frome the team played very well and it was a great day out. Next year hopefully we will be picking up the winner's trophy instead of the runners up one.....
