Pakenham AFO Champions -- Again!

Congratulations to the Pakenham Floorball Club, for their outstanding efforts resulting in back-to-back titles in both the Men's and Junior Divisions!

Whilst 2012 saw the Pakenham Men's 1sts winning every game by close to ten goals, 2013 was generally a much tighter affair.  Stunned by the annihilations of last year, the competition stepped up a notch in Wollongong - but once again PFC 1sts went through the tournament winning every game, culminating in a hard-fought final with only three goals - two of them belonging to PFC.  That second goal made history, making PFC the first ever back-to-back winners of mens AFO.  Well done everyone!  As the only club to enter two mens teams, the PFC 2nds also fought hard, and were unlucky not to win more games.  Likewise Sale men fought hard all tournament, including leading Glebe until the dying minutes, and were unlucky not to notch up more wins.

Both Sale and Pakenham battled valiantly in the Women's Division, though unfortunately both missed out on the trohpy.  In the Junior division, Pakenham provided two of the six teams, and played extremely well to also win back-to-back championships.  The Sale Juniors also played a very good tournament.

Can Pakenham do it again next year in Perth?  The smart money says yes...

Also, congratulations and thanks to VFA Committee Member Gavin Staindl, who was honoured with the Victorian State Contribution Award for his huge contribution to Victorian Floorball over the last 15 years.

 
Pakenham Squishees Claim Australian Title

To those who've been around Australian floorball a while, Sunday, April 15, 2012 was a historic day. Coining the day "four fifteen"
a la "nine eleven" might be a touch disrespectful, yet the tears shed today by some victorious players were no less real for being 
born of joy.

Pakenham was one of the earliest floorball venues in Victoria, as a bunch of children under 10 were introduced to the game over
fifteen years ago. Today those boys came of age.

Many of us have watched over the last five years as the Pakenham Squishees AFO team has looked so promising, but lacked
the experience to deliver the goods. Today that changed, as they comfortably outclassed the well-oiled Northern Beaches machine
to take out their first AFO title, winning 10 goals to 4.

The Squishees were hungry - but that they've always been. Today, however, they showcased the results of a very dedicated
training schedule, and an ever-increasing maturity and court presence aided by their one (yes, just one) overseas-raised anchorman.

For those of us who've witnessed their dedication and perseverance over the years, today was a glorious day indeed. That it
should happen during the first year of "PFC Incorporated", at perhaps the best run AFO yet, at their home venue, made the
fairy-tale all the more surreal.

Congratulations to everyone involved both on and off the court - and best of luck to whoever hopes to wrestle the trophy away
from the boys next year in Brisbane.  We've a feeling you'll be needing it - not least because the Pakenham Squishees also won
the Junior title earlier in the day.  

Congratulations Squishees!!!!
