This past weekend all three of our under 11 teams played in the second lightning carnival. Each of our three teams were in different divisions. The green team was in the crocodile’s division. The green team had a great day at the tournament winning 2 out of their 3 games which was enough to win the division and bring the pennant home.

This division was also won by our Footscray silver team bringing home the pennant in this division as well.
