OT7TNT23 - DAY TWO
After an action packed day one, teams were raring to go again, as finals day was upon us!
The Men's Masters
This division rolled on from day one, with each team having two more games to play to make it into the final or play off games.
The Killer Whales were the only team to go undefeated on day one, with both the English Titans and Touch N Me, Touch N You teams both having two wins and a loss.
The Wales Men's team bagged another duo of wins against Titans and the Portuguese Foxes to guarantee their place in the final.
The Scottish Stags had a great run out against the English M50s team, holding them to a 9-9 draw, in the first timeslot, whilst the Foxes day one win pushed them into the bronze medal match position.
Due to the Malaysian Team having a depleted team, their results were not counted in the table, but their team spirit was second to none.
Finals footy time, as the Titans took third place, beating Portugal 9-3.
Nothing could stop the Killer Wales, as they put 10 past the English team, who answered with seven tries, in a great final.
The ShootOut - Cup
Men's teams FIGJAM, Dutch Lions and Steiböck met mixed teams Narwhals and Sea Unicorns in the cup, with a round robin shoot out of fast paced 20 minute games, to determine their place in the semi finals, with 5th place meeting the Plate teams, in the repcharge group.
FIGJAM lived up to their name, going unbeaten in the pools, racking up 29 tries, conceding just 9.
Narhwals and the Dutch Lions were separated only on points countback, as Narhwals defensive record put them into second place, going into the semi finals.
But they fought it out on the field, to determine who would earn a place in the shootout finals. In a reverse of the pool games, The Dutch Lions ran out victors, with a 7-4 score line.
The English Mixed 30s teams, Sea Unicorns and Narhwals, met in the bronze medal match, going toe-to-toe in an an epic drop-off game with Narhwals taking the chocolates in a 6-5 victory.
FIGJAM hit the field with all guns blazing in the final, that was a similar result as the last time they me the Lions. A convincing 4-0 win for the English Men's 30s team, lifting their second trophy of the weekend.
The ShootOut - Plate
The Plate Pool was determined from day one's results, which couldn't have been closer. Three of the Four teams won two and lost one, so it all came down to try difference.
The All Stars landed in third place, making them favourites for the plate. That said, they were being joined by men's teams too, so they'd have their work cut-out.
The day's opening games saw All Stars take an early win over Sweden's Norse Code 4-1, whilst Triple threat had a 5-0 walkover, due to Mardi Violets still being in bed following a heavy night on the Cerveza.
Triple Threat took a W over Norse Code, 5-3, and then faced All Stars on field one, where they went down 3-5 in a great game.
Getting together on the morning of day one, the All Stars only lost one game all weekend, making them worthy winners of the Shoot Out Plate.
The Women's Division
We had an amazing response for the women's division this year, going from just two teams in our inaugural year, to an amazing seven teams this year.
Both Scottish teams topped their pool on day one, putting them in a favourable position and an 'easier' Cup Quarter final this morning. Two Euro teams were hot on their heals though, coming a close second in the pools.
The Quarter finals were a perfect example of how close this division was, across the whole range. Euro Jets pipped Summer Camp Champs by just one try, beating them 6-5, in an exciting end to end game, seeing them meet their team mates in an all Euros Semi Final against Euro Comets, who beat the German Pumpernickels 5-3.
Welsh Titans vs Euro Stars also had just one try in it, as the Titans took the win, putting them into the semis, with a 6-5 scoreline, pitting them against Humble Brags in the semi, who had a bye in the Quarters.
The live streamed field one saw Comets play the Jets, with the Comets being victors at the final whistle 5-2. Humble Brag's easy morning saw them with being much fresher and putting 13 past the Titans, securing them a final spot.
Finals time, and both women's teams looked sharp. Humble Brag were the stronger and more cohesive of the two teams, and this essentially put them in a better position more often. The Scots took the chocolate, in a 6-2 victory in a great game, and also great promotion of the women's game, especially at a seniors and masters level.
