Thirty teams challenge at Clifton polocrosse
ANOTHER spectacular weekend heralded the third polocrosse carnival of the 2013 season at Clifton.
Thirty teams competed in the two-day event, which saw the Family Challenge Competition held for the first time.
Clifton Polocrosse Club president Mark Hoey said it was the first time such a competition had been held at the Clifton carnival, now in its sixth year.
"There are not many sports where children can play with their parents and we wanted to highlight that in this new competition," Mr Hoey said.
Winner of the A-grade Family Challenge was the Gold Coast 1 team consisting of four members of the Cooper family, while in the B-grade Family Challenge the Clifton team, made up of the Hoey and McMaster families, won the trophy.
The Tansey Club, which was represented strongly by eight teams at the carnival, dominated the A-grade final, with Tansey 2 finishing too strong for Tansey 1.
All polocrosse action will be centred on the Bony Mountain Recreation Reserve this weekend for the Cunningham club annual carnival.
