Ireland’s Kegs have had a solid start to the ESF ESCCS in Mlade Buky sitting 2 & 1 after Day 1.
The day started with a close 13-12 victory over tournament hosts Sparks Mlade Bucky and was followed by a comprehensive 26-11 win over Belgiums Champions Mortsel. After such a strong start to the tournament, tiredness caught up with the Kegs in the final Game as the lost 12-7 to Austrian Champions Linz in a game the Kegs were good enough to win.
That said 2 wins on day one put Kegs in a position to control their own destiny as they move into day 2 of the tourmanet. The schedule for day 2 is tough starting off with 2012 UK Champions and Ireland Coach Moe Flett’s Chromies (1130 Irish Summer Time). An added spice to this game is that a number of the Kegs play for the Chromies in the UK. Kegs then finish the Group stage with a game versus Germany’s Hangarounds (1545 Irish Summer Time)
All to play for the Kegs to ensure they stay in the top 3 in their Group and make sure they qualify for the medal tournament on Thursday & Friday.
