Last saturday some of our Lumberjacks traveled to play in the Bundesliga West Cup, the season opening tournament in Münster. We left Kaiserslautern at 6am and arrived in Münster at 10:30am, having the longest distance to travel of all the teams participating. Fortunately, Münster did a good job about planning and our first game started at 11:30am, so enough time to warm up. The weather was quite rainy, but who cares? We just wanted to play some lacrosse and enjoy the day. We succeeded!
In Münster our first action was to recruit a goalie, since our own could not make it. Fortunately, we almost always found one for entire games with the exception of one half of a game where we played with no subs neither a goalie. 8 players and a goalie were allowed on the field and only 7 Lumberjacks were there. So, there was plenty of game time for everyone, even our rookie who joined only a few weeks ago. He could get some impression of real game situations and great teamwork.
Thanksfully some of the other teams helped us playing our games. Thanks again to all of these awesome guys!
