Brighton Ultimate have played and won their final game of the World Ultimate Club Championships 2010 in Prague. They beat SQOAL from Japan 18-16 in the 19th/20th place playoff this morning. Congratulations to all who played, from the scorelines you can tell that there were a number of close games and their eventual placing deserved to be a bit higher.
From Tom White, written on the day before their final game:
A very tight and hotly contested game ending in a [16-14] loss to Duke sums our tournament up. We never managed to properly fire on all cylinders for a whole game, and we seemed to have an unlimited supply of out-of-character individual errors. We had some great patches with everyone the team playing awesomely, and there is a great feeling from all that they wouldn’t want to be playing with anyone else.
Tomorrow we play for 19th. Not where we’d hoped to be at the end of a hard week. But I think it’s pretty much right, and we’re all proud of what we’ve achieved together.
