We pay gratitude to EVERY member who has contributed to our club - Hunters of the past, the present and the future. This weekend, the touring squad came away as champions of the NYC Touch Tournament because of you all.
There were many lessons learned on this tour during the lead up, on the day, and on the pitch.
The final was thrilling. Hunters and NYC Touch played hard up to the very last second. They’d score, we’d score. They’d get a stop, we’d get a stop. When the hooter rang, Erik Mendoza edged one more in to tie the game up. We went to drop off!
In drop off, both teams are given an opportunity to score. In a true dramatic fashion, BOTH teams had opportunities to win with convertible attempts at the line. We stayed the course and flowed out of the box, stretching them wide with enough space to burn them on the edge. Defense wins games and with a Craig Martin interception we won. Final score: 10-9
Big shoutouts to the Austin Axes, San Diego and New York for a great tournament.
We look forward to the continued growth of touch in the US.
