2019 Scottish Mini Mon Championships – results

The Scottish  Mini Mon Championships were at Wishaw Sports Centre on Saturday 25/05/2019.

Owing to the public holiday, we only had two entries in the competition.

However we did have our roving reporter present in the person of Paul McWatt and he provided the following match reports:

Glen Ferrier – AA – U25kg – Silver

Glen quickly cruised through his first three fights, winning them all with Ippon scoring throws within 15secs. (Haria-Goshi in the first two and O-Soto-Gari in the third)

His fourth fight was his toughest, both players picking up a wazari each. It looked like it was going to be even at the end when Glen managed to get close enough for a thundering O-Soto-Gari with a second to spare!

Glen had another quick contest in his fifth fight catching his opponent with a lovely Ko-Uchi-Gake for Ippon in 7secs.

In the final Glen was unfortunate pick up a minor injury and had to submit but it was a well-earned silver medal.

Alex McWatt – A – U34kg

Alex’s first opponent caught him with a couple of sweeps but didn’t score. The contest went into golden score and Alex managed to hold down his larger opponent for the win.

He lost his second fight, getting thrown for wazari and held down.

Alex won his third fight Wazari-Awasete-Ippon., benefiting  in contest the techniques that he has been working on in training.

The fourth contest looked like it was Alex’s when he threw his opponent with a massive Uchi-Mata but his opponent managed to escape and land on his knees. Alex was then unfortunate to get caught for 2 wazari scores.

Alex finished joint second in his pool but missed out on the cross-over due to the head-to-head results.

Great effort from both boys.

Well done both of you and thank you to Paul for the match reports.
