Match report: SAFC vs Bedford. And this week we are….

…Fencing, just fencing.

No 3 Counties League matches, no club competition, just good old-fashioned fencing.

Last week, Thurs.23.05 we hosted Bedford for a 3C league match – here is the match report:

St. Albans won the foil pretty comfortably, taking that 7 – 2.

As expected, the epee was more difficult, even though Bedford were let down and missing one epee-ist.  So their two had to doubled up and were joined by one of their foilists.

It was a close match but St Albans emerged victorious, just, winning 5 – 4 and so also taking the overall match win.

Thanks to Gemma, Jake & JD (FOIL) and Matthew, Bryant (c) & Anna (EPEE) and to everyone else that volunteered.

This puts us into a very good position at the end of the first half of the season (the league now takes a break over the summer months and reconvenes in September).

A few weeks ago we were tied in 2nd place with Luton for foil, epee, and overall.  But with wins against them and now Bedford as well, we’re jumped up the rankings:  we are now in joint 1st place (with Dacorum) for epee and overall matches, and 2nd place for foil.

Though that may change as some other clubs have only played 4 out of 5 so far.  Still, we’re in a good place as we head into the summer break.  Full league table results are here.

See you at practice…..!!
