On Thursday March 12 Somerset College participated in the Schools 5 Cup. This Football Tournament for Year 7s took place at Goals Australia.

Goals Australia offered a unique five aside sporting experience for everyone to enjoy. It is safe, fully enclosed and floodlit, and features an all-weather 4G synthetic turf pitch.

In this first edition from the Schools 5 Cup, Somerset competed with Southport State High (who had three teams registered), Keebra Park and Foxwell College. After playing each opponent one time, we ended first in the league table. The team played a total five games between 9.00am and 12.00noon. After completing the group stage, the boys had a well-deserved lunch break.

Ending in the first group, meant playing in the Semi-finals verse Keebra Park. We started well creating many opportunities but the ball didn’t want to go in. It was Keebra who scored the first goal. But we continued creating opportunities and moved the ball around quickly. We made some great goals to go on and win 7 to 2.

After playing the Semi-finals, Southport State High School was waiting for us in the final. After beating Southport in the group stage, we knew they were ready for revenge. It showed when they scored two goals in the first half and took an early lead. Somerset underestimated its opponent. In half time we spoke and asked ourselves what our objective was? As discussed in the morning, we wanted to bring the Trophy to Somerset. In the second half we improved and showed some class scoring three goals. The final score was 3 to 2 to Somerset.

Well done to Alex Benson, Harry Mackintosh, Carter Dennings, Jayden McLean, Patrick Colville, Augustine Charisiou, Leo and Charlie Razack.
