2019 Fall Pub League - Weeks 1 & 2

Sep. 24, 2019 • Andrew Maron

The 2019 Fall Pub League started in September.  This year's sponsors are Daps Imbibe, captained by Chris Stratton, and Johnson & Wilson Real Estate, captained by Tiff Nichols.  First two games went to Johnson & Wilson in hard fought battles.  But Daps picked up points by having more players show up (1 point for every game to the team that has the most) and having a new recruit (1point for every new recruit that a member of that team gets).  We welcomed Alison MacLeod as our club's female participation continues to grow exponentially.  She did a great job for her first week holding a hurl!

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.

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.

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.

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.
