“The first ever ‘unofficial’ U-12 boys lacrosse championship was held January 17th at the HTHC Hamburg Warriors indoor facilities. Coaches Felix and Marek split the Hamburg team into two, to play 4 v 4 on small hockey goals. They played with modified rules to accommodate the youth, playing less physically than normal men’s rules. After the 30 minute game the score was tied 4-4. The penalty shot decider gave “Team White” a 2 point lead.
The boys had a lot of fun impressing the numerous fans and even the refs, Fabian Bernhard from Hamburg’s 1st men’s team, and Moritz Spiegel from Hamburg’s eldest youth team; the Braves, with their knowledge and skills. “Team Black” will have a chance to avenge themselves on 28.2 when the teams take each other on again.
The coaches would like to thank the great support from parents, players from the women’s and men’s teams and all others for coming to cheer the team on, and the refs for their time and hard work. We hope to see even more fans in February showing their support for the future of German lacrosse!”
