MWL3 Bears 1 Captain’s Report

It was a crisp morning in Nottingham. We were all looking forward to a day of playing Ultimate in some good weather conditions.

Group Game v Fling 2 They were an alright second team and we started a bit too casually, turning over more than necessary. Our D was strong and didn’t let them get near to scoring however. In the second half we played better and scored comfortably. WIN 15-0

Group Game v Sheffield Steal This was a mixed team. They played a variety of interesting tactics, particularly against our zone. We were always pretty comfortable. WIN 15-3

Crossover(?) v Birmingham Ultimate This was a team with a mixture of quality. It was pretty close at the start as they used long shots very effectively. We changed tactics and they got quite tired, allowing us to run away with it in the end. WIN 9-3 ??

Final v Fling 1 We have played Fling LOADS of times this year so we had some good ideas of how they would play. We tried a combination of poaches, zones and tight man. It was fairly close but we managed to get a lead of a few points and despite some tiredness creeping in managed to stay ahead to the end. WIN 10-7 ?

Another good tournament playing in different conditions to the previous day. Everyone played really well over the weekend and caused some very difficult selection decisions. Well done also to Bears 2 who were superb.
