Our friends from Minnesota were not able to make the trip down this year. That left a full length match between Fox River and Madison to settle who would take home the Winter Cup.
Madison jumped out early with a few quick scores, and played solid in the backs throughout the day limiting Fox River's scoring opportunities. Movement, speed, and passing were good -- and are things we will continue to work on throughout the year. Fox River fought hard down the stretch, but ultimately the match went Madison's way.
The championship match was followed up with a stick toss match which was good fun. After that everyone went out for grub in downtown Appleton -- where the '49ers team bus would pull up outside and unload. Turns out that Anthony Davis was not impressed -- we hope it wasn't the hurlers which changed his opinion!
Thanks to the players and supporters who traveled, and to Fox River HC for hosting. We hope for the event to grow in years to come, and look forward to defending our cup!
