Sunday 26/02/2012 the Hunters are invited to play a friendly game against Machelen Minotaurs. Face off will be at 15h00 at the fields of the Minotaurs (Heirbaan 10 at Machelen) entrance is free and cafetaria is open for all fans.
The Minotaurs are founded almost the same time as the Hunters, but are not yet active on the highest lacrosse level in Belgium, but this will change soon. At the moment they compete in the new founded Development League. The Minotaurs play friendly games against the Hall’gators and the ISB Raiders. With Belgian Beast attacker Arnor Lahor (currently active for the Red Rhinos lacrosse team) they have one of the best belgian attackers in their squad, who also acts as their coach.
The Hunters will use this oppertunity to practise some game situations for their BLL12 campaign. Also they will introduce playing a full field lacrosse game to their new and young lacrosse players. “At the moment we have 3 extra players who are interested in playing lacrosse. Because of their age (< 15 years) they can’t act in the BLL12 games, but during this friendly game we hope they will get infected with the lacrosse virus.” (Erwin van Veen, Heist Hunters Lacrosse vzw).
Who will win is not that important on sunday in Machelen. The most important thing is that new players can play lacrosse on a friendly and fun way and hopefully they will continue playing lacrosse in the future for their teams…
