Brighton Mixed stormed through to beat German team Frizzly Bears 15-6 in the final of the mixed division at the European Ultimate Championship Finals. Well done everyone!
Meanwhile, Brighton Open had a lot of really close matches, only winning 2 of their 7 games. Despite a low finish of 37th place, they gave their opponents a really tough time and showed that they deserved to be competing at XEUCF.
Check back in a day or two for some photos from the tournament.
Brighton Ultimate have had mixed results over the first two days of the eXtended European Ultimate Championship Finals. The Mixed team have been storming through – winning all their games – and are currently top seeds in the mixed division. The Open team won their first game on Thursday but lost their subsequent four games – they had some very close matches though and made their opponents really fight for every point. Over the next two days Brighton Mixed will be looking to reach the mixed division final, and Brighton Open will be trying to iron out the creases in their game, get some more wins under their belt, and gain a few places in the rankings.
