U12 Lightning Carnival

 The last round of the Under 12 season finished with fantastic display of fast paced lacrosse in the Lightning Carnival held at Camberwell Lacrosse Club. About 200 Under 12 junior players, accompanied by some very enthusiastic coaches and parents took to the field in this 4 hour long carnival.

Playing to a modified field and shorter match times, teams played off in two divisions, the Sharks and crocodiles, three rounds were played before semi finals and then a play off for each position in both divisions. The pennant from the Sharks division was proudly taken home by Malvern Black, and the Crocodiles overall winner was a proud MCC Red, winning in a very close match that went to overtime.U12 Carnival

Many old heads were reminiscing about the days when this event was held on Queen's birthday weekend up at the Malvern Town Hall, and all thoroughly enjoyed the sight of so many young and talented players at one place. The fantastic weather and fast paced, hard fought games showcased some future stars of the game, in an event that will surely become a highlight of future seasons.

Finally a big thank you must be made to all the dedicated team coaches and club referee's that give up their time each week to teach the future stars of the game their skills over the 2011 season, and the parents for driving the players to each match.
