Bedrijfsleague result – ESTEC wins the 2021 league!

Competitions Posted on 29 Jul, 2021 17:09:25

The last 2 matches ESTEC played in the Bedrijfsleague were statistically more difficult away games, with the first at Leeuwenbergh against PIT on July 15. PIT has gathered a strong team with very good players this year and are proving to be a force to be reckoned with for future years. Even though the ESTEC team got a bunch of shots in each game we still faced our first defeat of the season with a 3.5-2.5 loss to PIT.

Paul won 1 up
Erik lost 2 down
Anders halved
Andrew lost 5&4
Brian lost 3&2
Rob won 2up

On July 28 we only had BP left to play at Kleiburg. The League table by now saw ESTEC in second place with PIT one point above us but already having played their final match. BP, with a win, could also still pass us. And BP at Kleiburg is never an easy opponent. ESTEC had to win to secure the 2021 Bedrijfsleague victory! With terrible weather the entire week we got very lucky with only strong winds to content with but otherwise very pleasant (even sunny) conditions. The final scores were:

Erik halved
Rafael won 3&2
Anna Carmio won 3&1
Andrew won 5&3
Brian won 4&3
Gijs lost 3&1

With this 1.5-4.5 win against BP ESTEC has secured the victory in the 2021 Bedrijfsleague! Shell and BP still have a match to play but can no longer catch us. In total 14 members played for the ESTEC team this year with each player playing an average of 3 games. Thanks to all team members for their contribution to this great result for the club! A special thanks goes to Anna Hjortnaes arranging Zeegersloot as our “homeclub” in 2021! Next year we hope we can get an even bigger team to represent ESTEC in this great competition to defend the title!

I’d like to thank all the participants for getting through their matches quickly, and especially for the good usage of the Challonge tool. This year the tournament was run with minimal intervention on my part, and concluded before the end of July, while usually it lasts until October. Well done everyone!!!

Your Captain
