The Mullumbimby men’s waterpolo team has won the far north coast championship for the second year in a row after a hard-fought grand final against the season’s major rivals, the Alstonville Rattlesnakes.

The game could barely have been closer with the full-time scores locked at 11–11 and the penalty shoot out going the way of Mullumbimby 4–3.

‘We have been the team to beat all year. We played well as a team in the final and that got us over the line,’ team member Sean Hunter said. ‘We were playing at home at the Mullumbimby pool which is always a big advantage’.

Going into the premiership game both teams had managed a win against the other in earlier rounds.

‘Alstonville will definitely have an opinion next year about letting us win three in a row,’ Sean said.

Mullumbimby finished the season with 16 wins and two losses.
