Finals & Moving day

Today was mostly comprised of having breakfast clearing out our rooms, watching the semi finals and final and moving to Bucknell for our second Tournament the Bison Brawl!

The final was an amazing game between Alcatraz Outlaws and Looneys of Maryland, the Looneys are made up of teams from powerhouse prep league the MIAA, teams like Loyola Blakefield and Calvert Hall etc watch the final from 2013 at the link below, it was a one goal game with an exciting end, Alcatraz had the chance of scoring on a one on one with 30 seconds left but their Coach called a timeout! Looneys where the Gait Cup winners in 2013!

We then checked out on the dorms and returned to the gym to hand in our keys! (Well most of them), The Coach Jancyk thanked us for coming he has had some great feedback about us and is excited about our return in 2015! He was surprised how well we did against the elite competition in the highest division and praised us for our high standard of play!

We got back on the school bus at 4pm which left some time to kill, I discovered that the playstation generation do not like to have nothing to do and can't sit still for too long!

The Bus ride was fine and they played music and had a laugh whilst a number of us slept and arrived at the beautiful Bucknell Campus. I was met by Joe Conner and he showed us around the air conditioned dorms! The lads seemed happy and went off to explore after settling in, it is a bigger campus than Gettysburg but we are finding our feet!

More pizza tonight for the boys! And an early night is in order! 

I'm excited about the tournament as we finished off strongly at the Gait Cup!

Zac and Vav have arrived also.

Look out for the return of the unknown Knight blog today!
