South East Regional Foil

Two Saxons took part in the South East Regional Foil on 21st June at the University of Kent. Wayil Eisa, fast becoming ubiquitous on these pages was joined by Oliver Robinson in his first competitive outing.
For a first competition, Oliver had an excellent poule, winning 3 of his 5 poule matches, before going out in the last 16 to take 10th place out of 19 competitors.
Wayil also won three poule matches, and took an early, big lead in his last 16 encounter. He then came close to throwing away all his good work by letting his lead slip away and letting the bout get far too exciting at 14-14. Fortunately his nerve held and he took the last point to earn a quarter final place.
This was as far as he went, but can be pleased with his 8th place.
