Warwick LPJS 2011
On Saturday 7th May three ECfencers competed in the LPJS Warwick Epee event.
This is one of the best attended LPJS events of the year, largely due to the excellent running of the competition and all metallic pistes.
Elliott Grover continued his good run of success since moving up an age group by wining the silver medal in the U17 event.
Ells was on excellent form after a tricky first pool by winning all but one match in his second pool. After a bye to the last 8 he found himself 12-13 down with a few seconds remaining but scored a great counterattack hit to level the score and go into extra time. The extra minute of play lasted only 2 seconds as Ells instantly launched a close quarter attack to win the match. The following match resulted in a 2 point lead for Ells taking him to the final where he met the talented Paul Sanchez-Lethem of Brixton FC. This match fnished 15-7 to Paul but ended a confident and inspiring day from Ells.
Results from all ECfencers are:
Elliott Grover - SILVER - U17
Andrew Hughes - 13th place - U13
Jordan Ratcliffe - 11th Place - U17
Full results are (unofficially) on the Fencing Forum here.
