After taking the Ice Factor Challenge Cup by storm last year the Boomerangs set their sights interstate: The vision from the leaders Marie Shaw QC and Brittany Armstrong was to take the team interstate to play games and eventually overseas. From there started the project to take this team to represent Ice Factor, indigenous people and South Australia to Darwin.
The team was full of excitement before the tournament and attended all the promotional events that were organised. This close and positive mentality followed the team all throughout the tournament with players experiencing bonds like they never have. One of the big mentors and leaders in the team was Northern Adelaide Senior College teacher and the first Indigenous player to play for Australia Jarrad Chester. His experience and knowledge was able to lift up every player in the team. Max Black from Hamilton Hornets was a wall in nets but was also well supported by the tenacious defence.
The First game Boomerangs struggled with the small rink they are not used to. The Tiger Sharks took the win in that game. However after some guidance from Jarrad and Joey the team bounced back with a top effort in the game 2 to take the series in the decisive game. In game the Boomerangs were all over the Sharks and took on a convincing victory.
Now the sights are set for an even bigger catch and taking the team international. We would like to take the time to thank a ll of our supporters for this project! once again we could not have done this without you. THANK YOU!
