Cork Open 2018

13-14/10/2018 |  We sent one Open team and one Women’s team to Cork Open this year, here’s how
the teams got on.

UCC Open

Final placing: 10th

MVP: Killian Leahy
MSP: Josh McMahon

The Open team was a mixture of experienced and developmental players but overall it was a slightly more experienced squad compared to previous years. Competition was tough but the UCC lads managed to beat their seeding by 3 to finish in 10th place!

A few words from the Captain, Killian Leahy:

“All together it was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. It was a great foundation for us to begin to build our inter varsities season upon. This tournament showed us what we need to work on in training and also helped us to gel as a team.”

 

UCC (O) v Uproar 12-13
UCC (O) v  DCU 13-9
UCC (O) v PELT 3-13
UCC (O) v Ballincollig 6-13
UCC (O) v Cork Juniors 13-2
UCC (O) v Rebel 13-12
UCC (O) v Bonnsai 13-8

 

UCC Women

Final placing: 8th

MVP: Kate Daly
MSP: Claire Roche
A-game: Shauna Clancy

As usual, we sent a beginner-oriented Women’s team to the tournament. The weekend was very much focused on getting the beginners involved, teaching them the basics and getting them invested in the sport. Despite their inexperience, the girls managed to get a few scores in throughout the weekend, and their flow and game awareness improved. Through it all the girls kept their spirits up and had a blast!

 

UCC (W) v Rebel X 1-13
UCC (W) v Tequila Boom Boom 0-13
UCC (W) v Tribe 1-11
UCC (W) v Dublin Gravity 13-0
UCC (W) v Rebel Y 1-13
UCC (W) v UL 5-10

 

 

Big thanks to the Cork Open organising committee (especially Edel) for such an enjoyable tournament!
