Avoca Mixed 7s 2013

The 2nd annual Avoca Mixed 7s Hockey Tournament returned on 27th April 2012 and along with glorious sunshine it was an amazing day out. Although there were 4 new teams this year, 7 teams were unable to enter this year which meant the tournament was contested by 12 teams down from 15 last year.

2012 finalists Hook Hackers and Stragglers both found the competition tough going this year, the former and 2012 champions, finished 2nd in the group but sadly fell at the cup quarter final stage and eventually finished 8th. The latter drew all three group matches and finished 3rd and subsequently did not qualify for the cup; though 2 wins from 2 ensured they claimed the Shield and the tournament's best defence record!

Boyne Hockey Club returned a stronger contender this year and were just a goal away from a win in the groups thanks to a 10-goal haul by the tournament's third top goal scorer Robert Browne. Pink Ladies came closest to picking up a win against Team Kazakhstan but fell to the odd goal losing 5-6; partly due to the predator instincts of Sheenagh Walker and the tournament's second top goal scorer Eoin Byrne.

The Plate was contested by the 69ers and Team T.I.T.S. and was eventually claimed by the 69ers after a thrilling game which ended 5-4. The passion was evident as the goals went in, the roars of delight could be heard echoing around the pitch.

Bravoca picked themselves up from a 4-0 thumping in their opening game to come back and win their remaining group games to finish second. They moved into the cup semis thanks to a narrow 4-3 win over Hook Hackers with Sinead Hingston in superb form at the back. However, the side couldn't cope with the determination of Glenageary Utd and were then pipped for a piece of silverwear by the Wolverines who picked up the cup 3rd place.

The final saw The Panthers take on Glenageary Utd who had comfortably beaten each team they had come up against. However, Mark Meir's Panthers had other ideas and the men's 3s captain organised his experienced squad superbly to snatch a 3-1 victory and claim the cup.

The tournament top goal scorer was Alana Horgan from Glenageary Utd with 13 goals from 6 games, while the player of the tournament was named as Trevor Dagg from the Panthers.
