Dean refuses to be downbeat despite Hungary loss

16 Jun 2015

Isabelle Dean insists Team GB will head into their water polo classification matches full of confidence despite slipping up against Hungary in their final group game.

Hopes were high for ending their group strongly having secured their first victory against Israel on Monday.

However they got off to a slow start against the Hungarians and trailed 5-2 after the first quarter – Grace Rowland and Katherine Rogers on target for the Brits.

They closed the gap in the second, with Rogers and Danica Brazier both scoring but Hungary maintained their three point lead at half-time.

And while Team GB battled hard after the restart, Hungary showed their expertise in the pool, rattling up a further seven scores to ease to a 16-4 win.
