How BHF2013 was won…
BHF2013 brought with it the introduction of an exciting new league format with the top four in each category playing in semi-finals on Monday before each winner competing against each other in their respective finals. The new format certainly did not disappoint with several of the the semi-finals, including the Men’s final going all the way to penalty strokes to decide the winners.
|The Mavericks||1 – 2||Adel Allstars in Alcatraz|
|M.U.T.S||1 – 2||Topsy Turveys|
|Adel Allstars in Alcatraz||0 – 1||Topsy Turveys|
Topsy Turveys triumphed as the Women’s winners after beating M.U.T.S 2-1 in the semi-final before going on to beat Adel Allstars in Alcatraz 1-0 in the final. The Northop Hall ladies finished third in the league with seven wins from nine and recorded only two defeats against The Mavericks and M.U.T.S who finished 1st and 2nd in the league respectively.
|Colour Purple||5 – 2||The Marauders|
|The Hornedogs||2 – 4||Lads Sausage|
|Colour Purple||7 – 6||Lads Sausage|
In the Mens competition, Colour Purple came out on top of the league with nine wins from nine. With no goals conceded throughout the weekend, a tough challenge lay ahead for their final opposition, Lads Sausage. The final ended 1-1 after full time with both sides converting all five penalty strokes to put the final into sudden death. Lads Sausage failed to convert their sudden death penalty stroke and Colour Purple were named the Men’s BHF2013 champions!
|Matty J…||1 – 4||#teamskite|
|Barmy Mamba Army||0 – 2||The Weigh Anchors|
|#teamskite||0 – 1||The Weigh Anchors|
#teamskite from Heriot Watt University chose BHF as their first ever tour to attend and they managed to find themselves in the Mixed final against local touring team The Weigh Anchors on Monday afternoon. However it wasn’t to be the Scotts day, with The Weigh Anchors scoring the only goal of the game in the first few minutes to win 1-0. A special mention must go to Matty J… who finished top of the Mixed table but were defeated 4-1 by #teamskite in semi-final 1. We are sure Matty would be proud of you!
