The Under 8 Green, White and Blue came out for action last week in the Varsity Champions League competition. The Green team kicked off first versus Victory, who we know from our pre-season games a few weeks ago.
The Green team scored three great goals, an achievement they can be proud of. Unfortunately, Victory claimed a few more goals to take the win.
While the Green team was playing the White team was warming up. After discussing the formation and starting line-up, the boys and girls were ready to go. The opponent GCFA took the lead and was bit stronger than us. The White team was able to score one goal in the first half and one goal in the second half. Well done everybody!
The Blue team practiced against each other. With their opponent not turning up, we took the opportunity to play a practise game on Saturday. Through this game, the players will be stronger for next week. Thanks to the GC Futsal referees to help the players with explaining the game rules.
The Under 15s started their Futsal season last Wednesday in the Carrara Elite League. The Spartans played their first games versus The Rangers, who exist of players from Robina City Football Club.
After discussing the team tactics the boys were ready to go. Being a bit nervous, we started slowly on the ball. This resulted with a goal for The Rangers but Somerset came back to 1 all with a great goal from Ethan Robinson. This was also the half time score. In the second half we were the better team. We created lots of opportunities but the ball didn’t go in. The Rangers' goalkeeper had some great saves and had two successful counter attacks. The game ended in 3 to 1 for The Rangers.
Sometimes the result is unfair but the way we played and the amount of opportunities we created gives us lots of hope for next week.
