European Hurling Championship 2015 - Round 1 Den Haag:
European Hurling Championship 2015 - Round 1, Den Haag:
6 Dresden Hurlers travelled to Den Haag at the weekend to play the first round of the European Hurling Championship against teams from Viking Gaels (Stockholm, Malmo, Copenhagen, Gothenberg) Den Haag, Belgium and Amsterdam. Playing 9 a side, we were joined by 2 players from Cologne and 2 from Den Haag. Injury forced Andreas off in the 2nd game, so we were down to the bare bones in terms of playing numbers. There were some strong performances by our lads with Glen and Patrick scoring fine goals and Ken, Sebastian and Jakob firing over the points we kept fighting to the very end but over the course of the day, experience and fitness proved our undoing as we succumbed to stronger teams full with Irish born players. Photos from the event can be seen on our Dropbox and Facebook accounts in the coming days.
Congratulations to Den Haag who beat Amsterdam by 3 point in a keenly contested local final.
