Eden Cup and Leon Paul Cup

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

Two Saxon fencers took part in international tournaments this weekend: William Price in the Eden Cup (Junior World Cup) and Christopher Mollard in the Leon Paul Cup (Satellite).

Eden Cup

The Eden Cup is one of the selection events for the British Junior (Under 20s) team, and Saxon’s William Price earned his second GB cap by getting selected for this event along with 19 other British fencers.  He started strongly, beating the other British fencer in his poule but went on to lose the other 5 fights in his poule to finish V1D5.

After the poules William was seeded 99th but did not make the cut and so his day ended there.

Final placing: 99th of 115 fencers.

Leon Paul Cup

The Leon Paul Cup is one of five Men’s Foil Satellite events throughout the year but the one with the biggest entry.  Christopher Mollard was the only entry from Saxon and came out of his poule V2D3, an improved performance on his previous attempts at this competition.

After the poules he was seeded 99th of 142 fencers and made the cut, earning himself a last 128 fight against the Portuguese fencer Alvaro Noite.  A match which he lost 15-6.

Final placing: 100th of 142 fencers.

You can find the full results, including scores from the poules and the elimination tableau, here.

Well done to both of you!
