Recent Competition Results

One-Hit Epee Poule, OFC, 26th August
Last Tuesday evening seven OFC members tried fencing pentathlete-style:
first to hit wins, if no score after 60 seconds then double defeat. 
We certainly rattled through the bouts quickly; one lasted just 2.5 seconds when Ben
immediately fleched his opponent.  It certainly does make for a different game as there
is no chance learn your opponents tactics.  Make one mistake and you’re out. 
Miss and your opponent will have take the opportunity to hit you. 
Vicky showed her experience as a proper pentathlete winning 5 victories from 6 fights. 
Then we had a three-way split for 2nd; on 4 victories each were Ben, Heloïse and Mark. 
Thanks everybody for a great evening of competitive fencing.

Leon Paul International U9 Foil, Leon Paul Centre, 2nd August
Well done to Darcy Herring-Johnson who won silver in her first major competition. 
Darcy was one of only 2 girls to enter, so they combined the boys (8 entries) and
girls into a poule unique of 10 where they all fenced each other. 
Out of her 9 bouts, Darcy won 6 and lost 3, an excellent result:
winning her bouts through offensive and aggressive tactics (she was fearless!). 
Darcy was ranked fourth after the poule. 
They went into Direct Elimination for the boys, and Darcy and the other girl played
each other in a final.  Darcy had beaten the girl in the poule (5-3), but in the final
lost to her (10-7) in a tightly contested match.  It was 4-4 after the first two minutes,
and then 6-6, and then Darcy took the lead 7-6, but the other girl fought back and triumphed. 
So Darcy was awarded silver, and came away from her first major

competition having learned a lot!
