The 2014 Beerfoot 7s tournament is now in the books. Both the Jacksonville Men’s and Women’s team traveled together to make the long trip down to Fort Meyers Beach. Aside from being stuck in traffic for 2.5 hours, the teams arrived LATE Friday night. With little sleep, Jax Mens had one of the first games in the morning at 9:00am against the Pelicans. Jacksonville woke up and score a number of tries during the first game with an end score of 11-5. Scoring is different in Beerfoot as the points are either 5, 4 or 3, depending on where you score in the try zone. No conversion kicks. Next game was not scheduled until 12:20pm, so the Men had the opportunity to mingle with the other clubs as well as cheer on for the Women’s team. Our next match would be are closest as we faced Fort Lauderdale. We kept the game close the entire match, but lack of faster player was our downfall and Fort Lauderdale would exploit it. Final score 19-20. The final match would be played against Naples B just after the game we just played. The game would be sort of sluggish and their speed could not be match by our players. Final score 5-30.
The theme of the trip was SPARTAN. At night we dressed light we were straight out of the movie 300 and had chants and explored the Fort Meyers bar scene. A great trip capped off with an epic kangaroo court. Thanks for all that participated and can not wait for Beerfoot 2015.
