Melbourne Autumn Tournament results and photos

Thanks to everyone who helped run the tournament, collect prizes, set up the boards, pack up the boards, make the flier, ref and cook the BBQ.  The brackets ran smoothly, gameplay was at a high level and spectacular to watch

A big thanks to our sponsors Knog, Anticoast, Skin grows back, Velo Cycles, Commuter Cycles, Human Powered Cycles and especially to Fibreflare who came down to cheer on our players

There were too many awesome plays to name, the prizes for Best Goal went to Locky who dealt a cracking shot, Best Goalie to Virginia who stood firm against plenty of goals on target, and a joint Most Valuable Player award went to to Chris and Brad who both showed their teamwork and goal scoring abilities.

A big thanks to our friends from Sydney and USA for coming down to play in this tournament, you guys really put on a show and we thank you for coming! It was great to send you off at the airport, come back soon!
