Kayakpolo ECA Cup à Saint Omer gagné par l’Italy

The ECA Cup is a series of 3 tournaments where national teams participate. The ranking of each tournament is used to make a final ranking for the ECA Cup.
Belgium did not participate in the first tournament. The second one was this weekend in Saint Omer (France) and Belgium participated with a Men and a Men U21 team.

Belgium Men had 6 group games.
The first game, against The Netherlands, was lost with 6 – 2. The Netherlands ended 2nd in the competition. The next game vs Italy was lost with 4 – 1. The Italians ended up winning the tournament. So the first 2 games were though.
Next games:
Vs Germany : 7 – 1 loss
Vs Spain B : 7 – 1 loss
Vs Poland : 4 – 7 win
Vs Great Britain B : 5 – 5 draw
This made the Belgian team 5th in their group, resulting in 1 more game (place 9/10) versus Denmark. This game was won, making the final result for Belgium 9th out of 13. A bit disappointing.

The Under 21 competition had 8 teams, so 1 big group and 7 matches.
All games:
Vs The Netherlands B : 6 – 5 loss
Vs Great Britain : 6 – 3 loss
Vs Poland : 4 – 6 win
Vs The Netherlands : 2 – 2 draw
Vs Denmark : 4 – 3 loss
Vs France : 6 – 1 loss
Vs Germany : 9 – 1 loss
Only the top 4 continued in the competition, resulting in a final 7th place / 8 for the Belgian U21 team.
