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!
