FEEDBACK – GCU CANOE POLO / VIKINGS CUP – 20/21 OCTOBER 2018
Update on the tournament this past weekend. Unfortunately due to the tough weather conditions we didn’t have people to get some nice photos for the newsletter.
GCU Canoe Polo hosted its second tournament of the season, the Vikings Cup at ERK. The annual tournament hosted teams from Dabs, Likkewaan, NWU and ERK. In true Vikings fashion the weather conditions were extreme, with lightning, heavy rain and extreme winds. The conditions were extremely challenging but this did not stop the enthusiastic teams from around the province. In a closely contested round robin competition the semi finals were the “Maniacs” team from dabs against the “French Roosters” team from dabs, with the “French Roosters” making it into the final with a 11-4 win. The second semi final was the ERK Vikings against the NWU team. It was a close game with ERK sneaking in a win in the last minute of the game winning 5-4. The final was the “French Roosters vs ERK Vikings. The game was closely matched up until the half way point, where the “French Roosters” showed their class to pull off a 5-2 win.
The final results were:
1 French Roosters
2 ERK Vikings
6 Likkewaan A
7 ERK Dragons
8 Likkewaan B
Well done to all the teams involved. The next event on the calendar will be hosted by Likkewaan at the end of February 2019.
