ALEX Rutlidge and Beckie Kershaw travelled with the Women’s Great Britain Water Polo team to the Ukraine at the weekend for a tough away match.
Alex and Beckie both played important roles in a hard fought 11 goals to 7 win.
Great Britain were expecting a warm welcome and were not disappointed as the partisan crowd did its best to put pressure on the officials and the visiting players.
Both Alex and Beckie once again made the starting seven and it was Beckie who scored Great Britain’s second goal as the first quarter finished 2-2.
It was in the second period that Great Britain took control with Alex winning an important penalty which was converted helping to make the score 6-3 at half time.
