ONCE again, despite a few minor issues, the Dodgeball Finals were a relative breeze. With a huge 20 teams qualifying from last week’s events, the challenge to get finished on time was always going to be tight.
Pleasingly, the standard of play was high; some of the throws were brutal – the speed and intensity were both frightening and awesome to observe.
The catching and tactical play was impressive. The 20 teams were grouped across the four courts, with the top team from each group contesting a semi-final place. Thankfully, there was no need for any count backs or head-to-head results as four teams dominated their groups and progressed to the semi-finals undefeated.
In the first semi-final, Freshwaters narrowly edged out Little Parndon reds, before Roydon edged out Churchgate 1.
The final was a very tight affair, with momentum swinging backwards and forwards through each of the 3 x 90 seconds rounds. Eventually, Freshwaters secured victory 2-1 over a strong Roydon team; Little Parndon reds beat Churchgate 1 by the same score for the 3rd/4th playoff.
The results of the afternoon groups were as follows:
Freshwaters 2 – 12 points
Little Parndon 1 – 8 points
Purford Green 2 – 8 points
Churchgate 3 – 6 points
Henry Moore 3 – 4 points
