City of Manchester completed a memorable double with victories in both the Boys' and Girls' U19 finals in front of a home crowd at the 2015 ASA National Age Group Water Polo Championships.
It was an emotional farewell to junior competition for both Manchester squads with the girls beating London Otter 10-8 and the boys edging out Croydon Amphibians in a 5-4 thriller.
The boys' final was the last match of the day and arguably the best as Manchester recovered from an early 3-1 deficit to carve a 5-4 lead thanks to Aaron Winstanley's penalty.
Croydon had one last chance to draw level with a man-up in the last 30 seconds but the Manchester defence held firm to reclaim the title they won two years ago.
The girls' final was less tense but their victory made up in some way for the result of the Girls' U17 final which saw Otter defend their crown.
The London side were the first to admit they were underdogs going into the final against a Manchester team who had maintain an 100 per cent record throughout this year's competition.
But a topsy-turvy game was finally put to bed as Otter notched up a two-goal lead in the final quarter and saw it out for a 9-7 win.
The Boys' U17 final also saw a young Manchester side defeated as last year's U15 champions Sedgefield took the crown.
It was another tense final but while Manchester recovered from 8-4 down to 8-7 in the final quarter, they couldn't find the all-important equaliser.
