Pride Cup 2017 Report


Scorpions claimed their fourth Pride Cup championship in a row, taking the best-off-three series 3-0 on Sunday 9th of April, 2017. A clear victory in game 1 put early pressure on the Dragons who lead by two goals in Balloon Soccer early in the 1st half. The Scorpions fought back well and took the lead with a minute to go. Game 3 was also decided by one goal and bought about a very exciting finish to the series. Well done to both teams!

A big thank you to everyone who attended today and supported our players. It was a great turn out!

None of this would of been possible without the amazing support of our volunteers, committee members and sponsors. Your support gives our players the opportunity to do what they love which is to play sport!
