Mixed Outdoor Competition Day 1

On the first of September the combination team of Force Elektro and R’damnit went to Arnhem to take on the rest of the second division. Arriving there around 10 in the morning we were soon to face the reality of the day, many many skilled ulitimate players.

The day started out with our match against GD. After several points of amazingly good team play, perhaps shocked to be winning, we fell apart a little and GD took the lead. Although we became more competitive once more following halftime, but GD had already run away with the lead and continued to play solid ultimate, leading them to a 15-7 victory.

Our next battle was against the host team: Airborn. again we took an early lead, and again we lost it. But there followed a very intense fight after that, which we emerged victorious: 12-10. After some more healthy snacks and chatter we faced Crunch 2. They had won both their matches so far withe a pretty 15-10. Following a very mixed match (both in terms of gender and strategy) which brought out our best fight, we managed a 15-11 loss.

It was a tough day in the second division, we fought hard, had a good day┬┤s worth of ultimate and a nice beer or two at the end. Unfortunately we demoted to the third division.
