Recap of Trøndisk 2017

Trøndisk is now a week away, and it’s time to recap.

For the first time since I started BSI sent two teams to Trondheim. One team consisted of veteran players, and one team of mostly new players. Unsurprisingly the veteran team placed higher, but the rookie team made a valiant effort, and won the coveted Spirit Of The Game award!

BSI 1 Group play Result
13 – 1 vs NHHI 2
10 – 4 vs La Bamba
10 – 8 vs Oslo Studentidrettslag
5 – 13 vs Trondheim Frisbeeklubb 1
9 – 7 vs Pancake Circle Ltd 2
This gave 8 points in the group stage, and tied with TFK1. however since TFK1 beat BSI, they placed first in the group.

The semi final was played against Pancake Circle Ltd 1, and was narrowly lost 8 – 10, which placed BSI in the bronze final. Here they would meet Ekeberg Sendeplateklubb, who they defeated 13 – 6.

BSI 2 Group play results
2 – 13 vs Pancacke Circle Ltd 1
10 – 11 vs Trondheim Frisbeeklubb 2 (Universe point)
11 – 5 vs Pickup team
7 – 10 vs NHHI 1
8 – 11 vs Ekeberg Sendeplateklubb

The battle in the 9th – 12th bracket was played against NHHI 2 which was defeated 13 – 3 and La Bamba which was narrowly beaten 8 – 7 on universe point.

BSI 2 won the Spirit Of The Game award with 56 points, beating TFK1 with just one point. BSI 1 came out last with a meager 47 points.

The semi final between BSI 1 and PCL 1 was hard fought, and just narrowly lost, and we would all have loved a rematch against TFK1 to avenge the 8 point defeat, however that was not to be.
I am very proud that BSI2 gave a fierce battle to TFK2, NHHI1 and ESK, even though they were lost in the end. A few less drops, and we wound have been in the 5th – 8th bracket. Also it was very fun to see the progress made by the rookie players through the tournament! Now we just need to polish off a few mistakes, and we will be set for December cup!

There is video from the games on field 2, and the complete results are also available.

Welcome new players!!

We would like to welcome everyone to introduction practice on TUESDAY AUGUST 22nd 8:00 pm at Krohnsminde idrettsplass!

To get to Krohnsminde, it is easiest to take the light rail to Danmarksplass, and walk between the hospital and Prego/Rema 1000 (Here)

Bring a good pair of training shoes or cleats for artificial turf, something to drink and, most importantly, a smile!


BSI won the Student cup Bergen Challenge 2016

Day two of the student cup Bergen Challenge in Ultimate Frisbee is now ended.

The day started miserably for BSI. Our first match was against NHHI1, which beat us on day one. We were missing a key player, so we went on a big loss 2 – 11 (!!). We did not manage to get our offence going, and were always behind on defense. Much of this was due to the great defense that NHHI1 player and their immense running capacity.

The second game was against NIHI. They must have found some magic potions yesterday night, because it was a much better team that met us for this game. They were better marking in defense and surprised us with some long throws into the end zone. However once we got control over them we won 7 – 5.

The bronze final was played between NIHI and NHHI2. NHHI2 took the lead, but NIHI was able to set a good defense and pressure NHHI2 to make many mistakes. Also they kept scoring on their long passes across the field. In the end NIHI was able to pull ahead and win 7 – 5.

The final was a 45 minute strength test. BSI, now with all players, did get the best start and took a two goal lead early. NHHI1 managed to equalize  the score a few times, but then appeared to get stressed and threw away some discs. We never took more than a three point lead, but in the end we managed to secure the gold medal with a 15 – 13 victory.

I have now words for how proud I am of each player that helped make history by winning the first student cup in Ultimate! Now we just need to rest up and see you at the banquet at seven!

All results are available on Bergen Challenge web pages!

Day one of the Student cup in Ultimate is over

Today four teams went head to head in the Student cup Bergen Challenge 2016! NHHI fielded two teams, BSI fielded one team and NIHI (Norwegian school of Sports Science) fielded a new team.

Our first match was against NHHI2, and it was an expected victory 11 – 2. We had our feet with us from the start, and opened a good lead. The points that NHHI2 scored were very nice. They used good handling to open up space on the field and their running capacity to get free from their defenders. More of this will get you extra points.

The second match came right on the heals of the first one, and was against NHHI2. They have really upped their game, and we missed with some attempted ISO plays to start with. The game went back and forth with lots of turnovers, and few points. In the end NHHI1 got ahead and won 5 – 7.

NIHI was our third opponent, and a team that I was excited to meet. I was not able to see their first game, so I didn’t know what level of play to expect. It turned out that this was players that did not have much Ultimate experience, and hadn’t played much together. This gave us a comfortable victory 12 – 1.

The fourt game was a rematch against NHHI2, and they had improved their game during the day. They started strong and finished strong, but in between those two rallies BSI dominated. It ended in a 10 – 3 victory (total 21 – 5).

Tomorrow we’re meeting NHHI1 and NIHI for the rematches, followed by the finals.

I would like to thank the players that were with me today for a tireless effort. There was many good points, and a lot of good defence. In four games we only conceded 13 points and scored 38, which I am very satisfied with.

I would also like to commend the other teams for very good spirit. There was very few calls on the field, and that makes me very happy!

All the results can be found on the Bergen Challenge web site!
