Avoca Mixed 7s 2012

€1,337.80 was raised for the 'Friends of Chris Pelow Fund' at this event - as I'm sure you'll agree a fantastic amount for such a worthy cause. We would like to thank Avoca Hockey Club and Ruth McDonagh for their continued support in this event and special thanks to Caroline Daly, Ronan Hickey, Aifric O'Malley, Carl Breaden, Jonathan Elmes, Paddy Griffin, Mark Cullen, Emma Meir, Mark Meir, Ian Wilkie and Elaine Sutton for their excellent help on the day. We were also so fortunate to have had such good weather on the day - it certainly would not have been the same if it had been pouring down with rain like it did in the days following the tournament.

In Group I, it was the Corinthian sides that dominated the group and when the sides met, it was Corinthian 1 who came out victors ensuring their team took home the bragging rights. Average Joes picked up a nice 7-2 victory to finish 3rd in the final group game against Boyne Warriors.

Having drawn 3-3 in the opening group game, The Stragglers and Hook Hackers finished level in Group II having both beaten the Pink Ladies by the same score. The paper-scissors-rock play off to decide the places was won by the Hook Hackers. With only three teams in the this group, The Pink Ladies finished third.

In Group III, having won all of their group games, Suttonians unfortunately had to pull out of the competition due to other prior engagements. Flectric Light Orchestra therefore finished top and the Railblazers moved into 2nd spot with a 6-2 victory over the Jammie Dodgers.

The Panthers edged out Wicklow H.C. for top spot in Group IV due to having scored more goals in the three group games. Team Taking It Too Seriously comfortably beat the Boyne Battlers 9-3 ensuring 3rd spot in the group.

With only two quarter finals in the Shield competition played, the pick of the bunch was a 6-6 draw between the Jammie Dodgers and Boyne Battlers. The Battlers proceeded through to the semis after a 2-1 penalty stroke victory. In the other quarter, the Pink Ladies beat the Boyne Warriors 3-1 to send them tumbling out of the Shield into the Trophy competition. Average Joes took no prisinors from the Battlers as they had their sights set on the Shield final winning 8-2. In the other semi, the Pink Ladies took advantage of the goals count double rule by playing ladies only and won 10-2.

Both the Jammie Dodgers and the Boyne Warriors earned walkovers into the final of the Trophy competition which the Jammie Dodgers won 5-2.

Team T.I.T.S. eased to victory winning 4-1 in the Shield 3rd place play-off final while the Pink Ladies snatched victory from Average Joes by the odd goal in the final, winning 2-1.

Regardless of how both Corinthian sides finished in the quarter-finals, the sides had to leave due to other commitments. The Cup quarter-finals saw an amazing 14-goal thriller between Corinthian 1s and the Stragglers where the lead changed on countless occasions. It finally ended 7-7 and went to strokes - the Stragglers knew they were going through all the same, but cemented the victory with a 2-1 shoot-out. The Hook Hackers beat Corinthian 2s 5-3 to book their semi berth, along with Flectric Light Orchestra and the Panthers beating Wicklow H.C. and Railblazers.

With both Corinthian sides out of the competition, Wicklow H.C. and Railblazers went directly through to the final of the Plate which meant there was little rest for those teams going into the semis; the Hook Hackers forced a narrow 2-1 win over the Panthers while the Stragglers held off a keen Flectric Light Orchestra side to win 6-4.

The Panthers made up for their narrow defeat in the semis by winning the Cup 3rd place play-off comfortably 4-2 as the Flectric side tired. The Railblazers were victorious as they edged out a tireless Wicklow side winning the Plate 3-1.

The Cup final saw a rematch of the Hook Hackers and the Stragglers - in the group they had drawn 3-3. Yet again, the play was even and just when the Stragglers had gone ahead 2-1, they then conceded twice to trail 2-3. The Hook Hackers held on for the win with some exceptional last ditch tackling from captain Stephen Fitzpatrick!

The tournament top goal scorer was Ziggy Agnew from Flectric Light Orchestra with 11 goals from 6 games, while the player of the tournament was named as Rachel Griffith from the Hook Hackers.
