Saints women’s water polo started continued their impressive start to the season with their third straight win over local rivals Edinburgh. The game took a familiar pattern with Saints taking the initiative and cruising to a 5-0 advantage at the end of the first period on the back of goals from Ruby Versfeld, Sarah Kreiser and Meg Hedrick. Bailey Meyer was proving a wall in goal and kept Edinburgh scoreless in the first half, at the other end Saints poured in goals from Kreiser, Versfeld, Kate Mackie and Bekah Kaufman.

Saints gave Rylan Scott her Premier debut in the second half and she was immediately called into action, saving a penalty from Edinburgh. Saints continued to dominate adding a further eleven goals in the second half with Edinburgh finally getting on the board with a second penalty.

Saints now face a tricky looking away match against newly promoted Manchester Metropolitan University as they look to extend the run that has taken them to the top of the BUCS Premier league.
