On Saturday, 26th November, 5 Photographers arrived at Gormanstown Leisure Centre (with some taking the scenic route, thanks to Google – but their dedication prevailed and they got there!!!)
There were two matches Saturday. In the first match, the ‘TEA bate’ game between Lyons Tea (Team: Ruff Rackelhahn, Mexicat, Bambi Deerdevil, Barbaric Acid, Psycho Granny, Jeanie, Pretty Careless, Jenna, Tini, Costello, Quadza, Crazy Eyes, and Argie Bargie) v’s Barrys Tea (Team: Bunny, Punches, Shutter, Hannahbolic, Grand Dam, Scrim Reaper, Saoirse, Val, Sombra, Orla Fitzpatrick, and Crash).
This was an exciting match and gave the Photographers an opportunity to get a feel for the game and become familiar with the required camera settings. Lyons won with 180 Points. Barry’s scored 155.
The second match was Dublin v’s Madrid. This was a senior game and again a very exciting/close match. The home team won with 134 points and the visitors scored 125.
