2018 Fall Pub League - Game 6 Recap
Nov. 12, 2018 • Andrew Maron
We have finally made it to the end of the season: the Pub League Final! Prior to the game, we held our first New Player Clinic, where we taught the basics to a number of new recruits. Some were brought in through word-of-mouth, while others were recruited through a very successful showing at the 47th Annual Charleston Scottish Highland Games. The Clinic was a sight to behold, with nearly 40 people on the field working on their fundamentals. After the practice, the teams organized and agreed to a 9vs9 match (as opposed to the standard 7vs7) due to near full attendance from both teams. With the numbers this strong, you could easily see how badly both teams wanted the win.

2018 Fall Pub League - Game 5 Recap
Oct. 31, 2018 • Andrew Maron
With this past week’s game, we entered the final stretch of Fall Pub League. After Team McCann’s incredible come-back victory over Team Tommy Condon’s in the previous match, this game could either clinch the League for McCann’s or give Condon’s a shot at the title. Motived by a thirst for revenge after last week’s stunning loss, Tommy Condon’s had a very strong showing of players. In contrast, due to unfortunate timing and extenuating circumstances, McCann’s had low attendance and was forced to forfeit the match, resulting in 2 points being docked from their Season Tally.

2018 Fall Pub League - Game 4 Recap
Oct. 25, 2018 • Andrew Maron
The stakes were high going into this week of Fall Pub League. Team McCann’s still had a narrow one-win lead over Team Tommy Condon’s in the season tally, and this game would be critical in setting the tone for the second half of the season. For the first time this season, Condon’s had the stronger showing in numbers, and felt optimistic about their chances.
