Nottingham u12 Orange and Under 2014 – Results
On Sunday 19 January Ace Crawley, Peter Harcsa-Pinter and Reiss McLaren-Meller represented our club at the Nottingham u12 Orange and Under Competition that was held at the Ellis Guilford School.
This was the first time Nottingham had organised an event of this format and the response was amazing with 88 competitors fighting on the day.
Ace and Peter we in the same category u30kg along with 16 other competitors, Peter was up first and quickly dispatched his opponent by Ippon, Ace’s contest followed and he unlike Peter lost his fist contest and would now fight in the repechage. Peter was unable to match his first result and he too lost his next contest and would also now fight in the repechage. Both boys then lost their next fights and were eliminated from the competition.
Reiss was in the u34kg category along with 17 other competitors, Reiss fought well but did not win any of his first two contests and was like Ace and Peter before him eliminated from the competition.
We are proud of the way the boys presented themselves and acted in the true spirit of sportsmanship throughout; they battled hard against some opponents that were older and a higher grade and did not let this deter them.
We look forward to seeing them in action again soon.
