UL Intervarsity Review - Galway win Bowl Trophy

This tournament took place last Weekend 28/29 March at the University of Limerick.

This year 6 teams took part:

Limerick Ori-ginals:
UL 55's
Galway Tribes

We arrived up Saturday morning and straight into play. We put in a good performance in teh first game losing 12-20 against the eventual winners, the Orig-inals.

The gale force winds didn't help us in the next 2 games where we played UCD1, losing 0-20 and UL'55's losing 3-25.

The final 2 games on Saturday were very close and we probably should have won both, a bad inning in each game cost us, losing 10-14 against UL DT's and 18-19 to UCD2 (A game in which we led 16-5).

So we went 0-5 for Saturday but did not play too badly and we had a certain amount of confidence going into day 2.

We went out to bar close to hotel and watched the IRL v BUL match and had a good night afterwards.

The 5th and 6th place teams were to contest the Bowl final on Sunday. This was to be a best of 3 game series against UCD2.

After a late night and having to rely on public transport, the opposition didn't make it in time for the first game so we got a walkover. But thankfully they made it for the second. We controlled this game pretty much all through and eventually ran out winners 19-8 with some very good defence and big hits, including a grand slam from Simon, therefore winning the bowl.

Some of us waited for final and presentations following. The final was won the the Ori-ginals over the 55's, this was an exiting game which was won in the first extra inning.

Due to some confusion, the Bowl trophy was locked in a cabinet somewhere (I believe its a nice crystal trophy) so we had to accept a cereal bowl in its place. We will get the proper trophy in due course.

Thanks to everyone who played (See squad in last post).
