After three days if Futsal, the Under 9 Boys are the winners of the 2023 School Futsal Titles with our Under 10 Girls and Under 11 Boys, runners up.

Under 9 Boys

Coach Ryan

Working with the Under 9s was a blast not only for myself and the players, but for those watching the spectacle they put on across all three days. These players have established themselves as a competitive and disciplined team on court showing they can use flair and technique to their advantage. 

They faced tough competition against Peregian Beach College in the semi, a top team from the Sunshine Coast who they lost to on the second day. The loss meant a greater effort was required to win win, which they did, to set the tone for a fantastic final. 

Well done to Zach Sanders, Edmund Lee, Hunter Sharples, Denham Barry, Sam Thompson, Thomas Chudzinski, Lachlan Watkins, and Leo Chen

It is great to see all your hard work paying off!

Under 10 Boys

Coach Kydra

Entering the last and final stage of the school titles, on the back of success in Rounds 1 and 2, the Under 10 boys were ready to play. Friday's fixtures proved tough, with Game 1 delivering a nail-biting loss to Gold Coast rivals, St Andrews. 

The second fixture would be a grand-final rematch against Mary MacKillop, with the opposition playing a highly disciplined brand of Futsal and ultimately coming away with the win. The second day saw standout performances from Jakub Pitura between the posts along with trademark creativity from Oliver Moir. The weekend's final fixture would see a local rivalry play out between Somerset and King's Christian College. 

Saving the best 'til last, our Spartans sealed a convincing 8 to 3 win; a result of the entire team rising to the occasion. Sion Kim, Ethan Kelly Correa, and Kai Edgley provided considerable value through their quick ball movement, whilst Jesse Kim and Louis Hodge did well to slow the oppositions attack. The boy’s perseverance was rewarded with a plethora of goals to Knox Black amongst others. 

Well done to all involved! The teams focus now turns to the Johnny Warren Cup at the end of the month.

Under 11 Boys

Coach Jonno

Day one saw the first game being Somerset Green verse Somerset Blue. A truly entertaining game in which the game was tied 2-all with a couple of minutes to go. Somerset Green winning the game narrowly 3 to 2 late on. Following an incredible start, Somerset Green finished their first day strong with two convincing wins.

Day two, an intense day which saw the main goal to try and help Somerset Blue reach the finals. Coming up against Peregian, a very good Sunshine Coast based school team. Both teams met the former champions. Somerset Green narrowly losing 7 to 5 in a neck and neck game, only to have been beaten with a couple of minutes to go. Somerset blue faced Peregian later, although the boys went down 2-nil early on, they scaled an incredible comeback to 3 to 2 right at the death. The game ended 3-all, a deserved result for their amazing efforts. Unfortunately, the day didn’t end as hoped, Somerset blue getting knocked out by Stretton.

Day three, finals day! Somerset Green having progressed through, came up against King's Pimpama. Having beaten them in the group stage, the boys needed to be focused. A great team display saw them win comfortably, moving onto the final against Peregian. Peregian was too strong in the Grand Final, deservingly winning the game which led Somerset to be runners up. 

It was a brilliant effort and I am proud of both teams who showed great intensity and resilience at all moments during the tournament. The organisation and focus before, during and after games were always spot on, a big thanks to Under 10 Coach Kydra for always supporting the group on and off the pitch. 

Under 11 Blue: James Baumfield, Alex Pourre, Andrew Blatchford, Vaughan Furlong, Hugo Hasselle, Edward Hassett, Josh Thompson and Danny Wang.

Under 11 Green: Max Bowden, Paxton Stewart, Harper Loon, Connor Millar-Martin, Zhander Griffiths, Oliver Ng, Benedict Thompson, Izaak Barclay and Henry Pevy

Under 10 Girls

Coach Sean

Through winning the Stage 1 and Stage 2 earlier this year, our Under 10 Girls Futsal Team entered Stage 3 of the School Futsal Titles which saw the young Futsal players challenge themselves through the three day, seven games tournament.

On Day 1, our girls played two games, both versus Under 11 teams. It was a great experience for the young girls to feel the intensive and physical final stage of the AFA Futsal tournament as this is their first year to play. Our girls still managed to score some goals in both games even though they couldn't win them.

On Day 2. The young Spartans played two games against Under 10 teams from Ironside and St Andrews. The games were very intense as both Ironside and St Andrews defeated many other schools in the earlier stages. Our young girls won both games with the score of 3 to 1 and 5 to 3, this was achieved with great teamwork. Our girls finished their group matches versus another two Under 11 teams.

On Day 3, our young girls played the Grand Final against the St Andrews. Unfortunately, we had three players injured from the games on Day 2, our young Spartans still played their best but just not at their full potential. The girls lost the game, but they should still be very proud of themselves for being the Runners Up.

Well Done, Robin Wang, Alex Lee, Chloe Li, Edith Hilbert, Ava Meyers, Scarlett Hasselle, Emma Cordner, Indi Toomey, Mayuko Takahata.

Under 11 Girls

Coach Nigel

A very excited and slightly nervous Spartan Under 11 Girls team started their last stage of the Futsal titles on Friday with one win and two loses. With the hope of better result on the day, the girls were in their results. However, throughout each of the six games, every opposition got tested and in most games the Spartans had the most possession and opportunities. Quality combination plays and the right spirit shown by all players helped the side to finishing fourth. While it was not enough to qualify for finals, overall it was a good performance. 

Well done to all the Under 11 Girls on an amazing school Futsal year. 

Bronte Butler, Emily Barry, Evie Ladbrook, Mayuko Takahata, Arianna Reading, Luella Zerbst, Audrey Hilbert and Imogen Sounness
