This weekend saw a revived Sweden Cup take place at the excellent grounds at Norrtälje Sportcenter. The Dockers sure set the bar high for next year’s organizer, and short of the wheather, nothing was left to chance. Unfortunately, this was the factor which would come to put it’s mark on the tournament.
Södermalm had convincingly defeated the Bromma Vikings, the far-traveling Crows from Oslo, and Kårsta Sweagles (the joint Årsta-Karlstad team). While having the home ground advantage, the Dockers struggled to keep up, and the only clear competitor was Solna Axemen. Every result was pointing towards a de facto final between The Blues and The Axemen, when the the wind, rain, and temperature got to be too much, competition was aborted half way through, due to risk of injury and hypothermia, leaving Södermalm on top of the ladder with the highest percentage. The post game sauna was much apreciated.
In combination with the prize ceremony and social the Elks squad for Euro Cup 2012 in Edinburgh this September was presented, and Södermalm can happily inform that club young gun Natis Johansson was once again selected for the national team.
