Half the season done..

We have just returned from summer vacation.
Half of the season is behind us.
Our playing as a team has become better and better, unfortunately that has not translated to the scoreboard.
We have lost the first five games of the season and we have 3 more before the semifinal (two scheduled and the season opener that we postponed)

We played Södermalm Blues on the weekend (Aug 25)
Årsta fired on all cylinders and took charge of the game giving us a nice lead at the end of the first quarter.
The following two quarters Södermalm fought back good, slowly gaining on us and the third quarter finnished with a one point difference between the teams.
The last quarter was a stand off
Who could muster a little bit more than the opponent?
Finally we managed to get a bit of a lead and when the final siren sounded the final score was

Årsta 14.12 (96)
Söder 12.10 (82)

We hope that this will give us the strength, selfesteem and will to fight to end the season with a few more wins.
We will go to Norrtälje to play the Dockers this coming saturday (Sept 1) – let’s hope we can put a dent i their successfull season

If you find yourself in Norrtälje on saturday, come down and cheer us on!

All for one, All for Årsta!!

The 2017 season is here!

It is that awesome time of the year again.

The snow is long gone (hopefully), the temperature is climbing, the oval is dry enough for games.

That means it is time to get things started – and that we will!!
The season premiere is here.

On Saturday, May 6th, the first double header will be played at Skarpnäcks sportfält.
The first game is us facing the Solna Axemen. Everyone is eager to get back on the field and wants to start with a win so it will be an interesting game.
The second game of the day will be a repeat of last years grand final; Norrtälje Dockers vs. Södermalm Blues. A guaranteed nail biter.

The first game will start at 12:00 and the second game will be started at about 13:30

This year we will have a grandstand to increase your viewing experience. There will be a naming ceremony for it – do not miss it =)

As usual there will be a BBQ with snags from Taylor & Jones, burgers, soda, beer and rosé

See you all on Saturday

Go Årsta!
