And there we have it Ladies and Gentlemen.... What a tournament!!!
A big recurring saying that we heard at all of the teams today was ‘let’s leave it all on the field’ and that’s exactly what all of our teams did! What an incredible experience being part of this province!
Tyler Meyer Photography has captured some great moments of us on the field, and we will be posting them asap....
So... to answer your question.... how did it go?
Easterns ends up 2nd overall, a mere 2 points behind the winners! Well done to each and everyone who was involved this year at #SIPT18. It was a cracker and one with many firsts.
Easterns Mixed Invites ended strong with a good win over Gauteng in their last game. 5th place, and also the coveted team spirit award! Well done for flying the flag.
Easterns Ladies Open had a lot of ups and downs and gained some great experience in their 4th place performance.
Easterns Mens Open have recorded their first ever medal with a fantastic 3rd place.
And Easterns Mixed Open took the gold final and first place for the first time in Durban, after being 4-2 down in the second half.
What great results!!!
We probably couldn’t have scripted it better! Wow! What a great second day at #SIPT18 for Easterns!
Mens side won 4/4 games
Ladies side won 2/3 games
Mixed side won 3/3 games
And the invites side really held their own and played some great touch against the other a-sides.
Tomorrow all our sides are up against Gauteng Touch Association for their first fixtures.
Big finals day!
Operation GET THEM TO THE GAME
In the next few weeks we will be sharing information on fundraisers for each of our Easterns Juniors whom have made the World Cup Squads to represent South Africa in Malaysia in 2018 in their various age groups.
This is a HUGE achievement and we hope to create awareness around each of these future stars' fundraising campaigns. So please share and support each of them where you can!
Pull out the bluff glasses and shake off your lucky rabbit tail, cos this is gonna be a big one.
