Carlingford Cyclones had 5 Teams at the 2014 State Cup and represented in the following Division Men 50, Womens 30, Senior Mixed, Womens Open and Mens Open.
During this State Cup I watched 7 Women’s 30 Games , 5 Women’s Open , 6 Men’s Open, 2 Senior Mixed and Played 3 Men’s 50 Games.
Each game was played in good spirit and enormous effort – not all results went our way but players walked off the field knowing they did what they could to best represent the Carlingford Cyclones.
The Senior Mixed reached the Semi- Finals and lost to the eventual winners – Peninsula 3-1
Women’s 30 had Eight Games before they reached the Finals – Each game was competitive and the effort put in by the team was massive. They played some good touch only to be beaten by 1 Try in 3 of the Eight Games.
Men’s 50 was short in numbers and was out played by most of the competition, but the effort put in , with a never die effort only fueled future desire for more comps to come.
Womens Open played some great touch. Moving into the Bowl Series, the goal was not to win but to perform well. We performed well in each of the three games despite losing them, but came away with valuable lessons. With this Squad can’t wait now to get back into training and start the climb up the touch football ladder.
Mens Open Lost two games and drew on the first day, but came together on Saturday and was undefeated and was getting better the more they played. Unfortunately they could not play final so ended up with the best they could possiably have.
