The weather gods smiled upon the PacNW this past weekend and we had beautiful weather for the 2011 Spring Reign Tournament at Skagit River Park in Burlington, WA.
Franklin took two teams this year and played in the A and B pools. In retrospect, we should have put our second team in the C pool as they struggled through an 0-5 weekend. Will make better decisions on that front next year. The JV boys and girls combined for a co-ed team and had a few close games to round out the weekend!
Meanwhile, the A team went 2-1 on Saturday and played Kwantlen Park (Canada) in Quarters on Sunday. It was highly contested game but Franklin pulled ahead to win it by a few. We then faced St. George York House (Canada again) in semi’s. We traded points for most of the game till the end when they went on a run. We went on a run to counter but didn’t have enough to hold back their offense. Final score 10-13.
I don’t mind losing a game as long as we play well and that we did. Hats off to the SGYH team – they played great and were well-coached! They went on to defeat Ballard HS in finals 11-10 or something like that!
