Steel City Boomerang Cup Results

On Saturday the 11th of September under blue skies and a perfect field, the Wallabies hosted the inaugural Steel City Boomerang Cup at <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />St Vincent College in Latrobe, PA.  Due to numbers and field size constraints, we were all happy to play a 12-on-12 tournament in a round robin format.  North Carolina Tigers, Philadelphia Hawks, and the Cincinnati Dockers all came into town to claim the trophy.

In short, after the 6 round robin games were played, it was the PITTSBURGH WALLABIES who came away victors to win the trophy!!  It was a fantastic effort by all players, umpires, and support members in a well played tournament played in great spirit!
