Recent Competition Results
Cardiff LPJS, 6th September
Darcy Herring Johnson won first place in the U9 Girl’s Foil, taking home her first gold medal!
Her first poule was mixed with boys and she won 4 out of 5 bouts, with an indicator of +14.
The second poule was all girls, and Darcy won every match, including defeating the top ranked U9 LPJS girl. It was an amazing experience for Darcy.
She learned a lot about how a competition works and what it feels like to play so many matches one after another.
Meanwhile Heloïse Hardie made it double gold for OFC,
winning the U15 Girl’s Foil – a great start to a busy Autumn of fencing!
Having passed his Level 2 refereeing theory exam over the summer, Alex Hardie was able to get some good practical experience reffing several poules and direct elimination bouts.
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.
