The opening round for the Under 14 division of the 2012 lacrosse season opened with a cracker. All ten teams travelled to Camberwell Lacrosse Club for in the Under 14 Lightning Games to open the season. With over 120 players, the action was thick over five, smaller-than-standard fields, playing six a side.

With many draws being seen over the first three rounds of the five-round event, one of the stronger performances on the day was from Footscray: not seeing a single goal scored against them. By playing shorter games in a Gymkhana-style event, the intention of this unorthodox start to the season was to get an indication of the level of each of the competing teams this year and produce a draw that reflects the results.

Camberwell U14The pace of the opening few games caught a few teams by surprise, but by the second round all teams were quick off the mark and few opportunities were being wasted. It was a fantastic sight to see ab entire age-group playing on the same ground with such competitiveness, and so early in the season: duly aided by the fantastic sunny weather and great quality turf!

From the results on the day, we're expecting a very closely contested  Under 14 competition in 2012, and we hope the fierce competition remains during the season for many more close games. We trust that all participants enjoyed the event and hope that this type of event can become a mainstay on the lacrosse calendar in the future.
