Lancaster have completed the first phase of this season’s British Water Polo League with a perfect record.

The city’s water polo stars head into the Super 5s having won seven games out of seven in Division One scoring 100 goals in the process against the best sides in Britain.

They completed their 100 per cent record in the opening stage by winning their final two games in Cardiff at the weekend 19-14 against bottom side Polytechnic and 17-15 against Invicta.

In the opening game against Polytechnic on Saturday Lancaster started as they meant to go on and never looked back after scoring seven goals in the first quarter.

The victory meant they topped the league with a game to spare but there was no let up as Zak Sly’s side made sure of a perfect opening phase of the season against Invicta on Sunday.

London 2012 Olympian Alex Parsonage finished the first stage with 38 goals while Tom Curwen was next in the goal-scoring charts with 33.

Lancaster now play eight more games over four weekends including a home event at Salt Ayre on the weekend on December 6 and 7 as they look to regain their national title.
