2019 Spring Pub League - Games 3 & 4 Recaps
Apr. 19, 2019 • Ryan Shrum
With everyone, including the field, fully recovered from the previous week’s mud wrestling match, we were ready to hit the field for another round of Pub League games. But first, to start off the week, we held another one of our New Player Clinics. Coach Dagg ran through the fundamentals of hurling with the rookies and new recruits, and soon they’ll be confident enough to join in on the fun! We then moved into the first of our two matches for the week.Continue reading
2019 Spring Pub League - Game 2 Recap
Apr. 12, 2019 • Andrew Maron
Despite the threat of inclement weather, our second game of Spring Pub League went ahead according to schedule. The field conditions could have been better, but we determined that a bit of rain and mud is no bother. There was also no sense in wasting the good turnout from both teams, though several were absent or still sore from the previous day’s Cooper River Bridge Run. As luck would have it, as soon as we put our helmets on to start the game, the rain began and was unrelenting throughout the first half.Continue reading
2019 Spring Pub League - Game 1 Recap
Apr. 5, 2019 • Andrew Maron
After spending the past month celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, and having a few new recruits to show for the effort, we finally began our Spring Pub League for 2019! In order to keep things simple, we have split into two teams, with each sporting one of the two colors from our new, reversible pinnies supplied by our sponsor, the Recovery Room Tavern. Team Gold is captained by one of our talented goalies, Ryan Finn. Team Blue is captained by Rob Coyle, who also captained the Fall 2018 Pub League Champions, Team Tommy Condon’s. While the turnout was strong from both teams, the Team Blue had several more veterans than Team Gold.Continue reading
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.
