Octopuses have imposed their will over an undermanned Raiders outfit, claiming a 6-2 victory in A-grade women’s water polo at Oasis on Monday night.

Claudia Nugent was a menace going forward, slotting four goals, while her sister Lauren Nugent was also in strong form.

Raiders stalwart Lauren O’Hara said her side was up against it all night.

“They were just too strong with the Nugent girls playing so well,” she said.

“Our fitness also really hurt us.”

But O’Hara was quick to heap praise on Raiders goalkeeper Lauren McLeod.

“I thought she did really well in goals,” O’Hara said. 

“Without her it could’ve been more like 20-2 in the end.”
