First results for the Green Cup

First results for the Green Cup

05/25/08 | by yevez | Categories: Footbag, Life of pleasures, Sports and Games

The first day of the competition at the Green Cup started with singles Net. As it is more and more common to see at tournaments the singles part was a single elimination bracket. You loose a match you’re out. We played all the way to the semi-finals and there was one very noticeable upset: Martin Cote from Montreal beat John Leys who was seeded number 2. The semi-finals will feature Martin versus Florian Goetze as well as Yves Archambault vs 10 times World Champion Emmanuel Bouchard.

We then started the doubles competition and this part went pretty much as planned as the top 8 teams kept their seeds in a pool format. At this point there are 14 teams left and tomorrow we will play that through to the semi-finals. The top teams are: Florian Goetze and Partick Schrickel who are the current World Champions, Eric Wulff and John Leys who are the defending Green Cup Champions and seeded third the team of PT Lovern and Manu Bouchard. A Wild card team would be Kenny Shults and Randy Mulder. They are the guests of honor at the Green Cup this year (with Martin Cote) Kenny and Randy used to dominate Footbag net doubles in the early 90’s and they reunited especially for this tournament. Although these guys don’t practice much anymore they are to be taken seriously just for the sheer amount of talent that they bring to the game.
