Beached Az 48 drew Ducks 48
Sam 26, Cole 22
Note: this game was reported as a 48-50 victory for the Ducks on the night but while entering the score sheets Kyle spotted the scores had been incorrectly added up in the 3rd quarter and corrected it.

The ladder and top scoring rankings have also been updated under Statistics.

NOTE to all captains and duty teams – can you please stay focused on correctly entering the score sheets and performing all other duties correctly? I.e. keeping time, scores on the boards and set-up/clear-up (ensuring all balls & equipment have been stored). In addition to last night’s mis-tally, which actually changed the outcome of the game, we regularly find errors on scoresheets, such as scores being attributed to the wrong person (in the same team), cap number confusion, incorrectly summing up, etc etc. For everyone’s benefit, including your own, let’s all try and get it right.

Weekly Rule Highlight

As described in section 7.4 of the Regulations; if a foul is committed and the player being fouled has the advantage or can even just play on immediately without obstruction, the umpires can choose to call “Advantage – Play On” (with or without blowing the whistle first).

“Play On” can also be called if both players committed a light minor foul on each other and neither was truly disadvantaged. So, more like a neutral ball situation created by two players bumping into each other at the same time while trying to get to the ball.

The umpires should ensure that neither player is, as I said, truly disadvantaged in this scenario, and that should be applied even more stringently when the game is close and in the fourth quarter (this is not a rule, but a recommended interpretation).


About Water Basketball Tasmania
Water Basketball is a sport developed by The Hobart Aquatic Centre. It involves two teams of 6 players, who pass the ball down the pool to their goal end, which is a hoop similar to basketball. Each player wears flippers (and a cap to identify which team they are playing for). Goals are scored as two or three points depending how far from the goals you are.
