The three times National SUPolo Champions "Blue Chip Raiders" SUPolo team went on tour again on Saturday 7th Sept to Kingsbridge in Devon to play in the last "West Country" SUPolo Tournament of 2019.
This time Blue Chip fielded two teams, the "Blue Chip Raiders" and the "Blue Chip Centaurs".
The eight team members drove down in the morning and the Raiders played their first match at 13:00 as the tide was ebbing and lost 2-0 to the Waterborn Warriers, the Raiders were devastated. However, the Blue Chip Centaurs regained the initiative and won their first game 6-0 and then went on to take revenge on the Waterborn Warriers by beating them 1-0.
After another 8 games across the tournament, the two Blue Chip teams had battled their way to the semi-finals
"Raiders" against the "SUP Pirates" (Raiders 7 - Pirates 1)
"Centaurs" against the "Waterborn Warriers" (Centaurs 1 – Warriers 0)
So the final was "Blue Chip Raiders" against "Blue Chip Centaurs" and the Raiders won the tournament and brought back the trophy.
