The Somerset Spartans Under 8s played on Saturday in the Varsity Champions League. This was the last Futsal round for our Spartans this season.
Somerset Spartans U8 Green was the first team to play. Their opponent was Varsity Knights. Presenting as a very physical side gave our Spartans a difficult afternoon. The game ended 9 to 2 for Varsity Knights. Thanks to Hugo from the Whites who helped the Green team.
Somerset Spartans U8 Blue played straight after the Green team. Their opponent was GCFA. Unfortunately, Zhander was injured in the first half and watched his teammates playing from the bench. The players needed to give more effort. Improving the quality of passing in the second half saw the Spartans score some great goals and end the game 4 to 2.
Somerset Spartans U8 White was the final Somerset game of the afternoon. White versed Victory, number one on the league table. Before the game started, we spoke about the scenarios that could occur in the game. No matter what happened the players were to continue doing their best, show good sportsmanship and be positive to our teammates.
Ending in the Top 4 qualified the Spartans Blue team for the finals. This is an impressive achievement for the side, given the boys are born one year below the other players in the League.
Should they win the semi-final, the Spartans will play the grand final in the same afternoon, at the indoor courts at Robina High School.
