Golden Duck 8-a-side cricket tournament

The tournament opened with a Group A match between the two Winterthur teams, WCC 1st coming out easy winners reaching the WCC 2nd total without losing a wicket. WCC 2nd Team faired much better against Freiburg-Nomads, losing out by just 24 runs, but it was Freiburg-Nomads that secured a spot in tomorrow's final after beating WCC 1st Team by 9 runs in the last game of the day.

In Group B Zurich Crickets beat Strasbourg Strollers by 40 runs, but lost by the slimmest of margins in their second game against Freiburg Cricket Club.

That meant Freiburg-Nomads had to wait until the first game on Sunday to find out who they would face in the final.

If Freiburg CC beat Strasbourg Strollers i it would be an all-Brisgau final, but if Strasbourg win, it would all come down to average runs-per-wicket to decide the standings in the group!

As it turns out Freiburg CC won easily.

Strasbourg did however, beat Winterthur 2nd in the first of the games to decide the eventful standings, while Winterthur 1st beat Zurich Crickets to finish 2nd in the competition oeveral. And it Freiburg CC that cam out on top against their neighbours, limiting Freiburg-Nomads to just 84 runs which they reached with ease, without losing a wicket and with 2.1 overs to spare.


Congratulations to Freiburg CC for winning the festival and thanks to all the clubs, supporters and helpers in making the tournament possible.
