Somerset Spartans Year 6 Boys came runners up in the Gold Coast School Futsal Titles. In the Final we were defeated by Albany Creek before a total of six games led us to the final showdown.
After weeks of practising on the Friday morning during the Somerset Spartans Futsal training and the Wednesday lunch time training, the boys were ready for this event. On Monday morning at 7.00am Coach Maarten took the team to the Coomera Indoor Centre. Arriving in Coomera we warmed up and then played our first game versus Tamborine Mountain State School. We began full of confidence ith after the first win, this resulted in four wins in a row versus Kimberley Park State School A, Canungra State School and Kimberley Park State School B.
After each game the boys reviewed their performances and set up their goals for the next game. The Year 6 boys’ objective was to reach the grand finale.
For our last group game, we played versus Albany Creek. We were defeated in this game. This left us finishing second place in our group. We qualified for the semi-finals!
In the semi-finals, we played versus Varsity College. A slow first half when the boys looked a bit nervous, was followed by a great second half by scoring all our opportunities. We won! For the final we versed Albany Creek for the second time in the day. The first 10 minutes Somerset had the best of the game and the most opportunities. Unfortunately, the ball didn’t want to score in the goal. In the second half Albany Creek came off better and scored. This left Somerset as runners up.
A lot of respect must be given to Harry Mackintosh, Carter Dennings, Ryan Palmer, Augustine Charisiou, Joshua Pieri, Advaid Naik, Jayden Mclean and James Kirk for going hard at it for a full day. Their first game kicked off at 7.55am and the final kicked off at 4.30pm.
Thanks to all parents for supporting the boys during their games.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
