The South African ladies’ U18 team successfully qualified for the 4th FINA World Junior Water Polo Championships during the second last day of the CANA Zone IV Junior Water Polo Championships in Durban Saturday.

In their final match of the competition, the home side made it three for three when they outplayed Zimbabwe by 20 goals to 5.

Egypt finished top of the log in the men’s qualifying events, winning their morning match against Zimbabwe 16-6 and concluded the competition with another draw against South Africa (6-6).

The final match between South Africa and Zimbabwe tomorrow will be the decider for the second qualification place to the World Championships.

Both the men’s and ladies’ qualification to the World Junior Water Polo Championships are subject to final approval from FINA.

In Sunday’s CANA Championships men’s final, the South African U16 team will go up against the U17 side for the gold medal after they won their game against Zimbabwe U18B 5-2, with the ladies’ gold to be contested between Zimbabwe U18A and South Africa’s U17.

Mzansi’s U17 side made the final by beating the U16 team with 11 goals to 4, while the Zimbabwean ladies claimed a victory against their B team with a narrow 8-6 win.
