Impressive shows all round from the Futsal teams this past round. The Under 8 Green, White and Blue all came out in action last week in the Varsity Champions League competition, while the Under 15s showed great form in The Carrara Elite League.
The Green team presented this week with Danny, Alex, Abhiveer, Ashton and Blue player Zhander, facing a difficult game versus Pac Pines. The Spartans were in very good shape at the start, a big achievement at this age to see players who keep their positions. Each week they are becoming better and learning more.
The White team of Hugo, Izaak, Logan, Imogen, Edward and Oliver played against Varsity Knights. Unfortunately, Will was injured and couldn’t play. We hope he recovers quickly from his injury. The White team was able to score one goal in the first half. We were looking for more goals in the second but luck was not on our side. Varsity Knights took their changes and had a good win. Like the Green team, we are seeing the White team improve every week.
The Blue played also versus Varsity Knights. The Knights were still a bit tired from their last game, this made it possible to get a few early goals. Second half the team got challenged to score only goals after having passed it to another player. This made the game more challenging for the Spartans. The Blue team got presented by Paxton, Zhander, Connor, Harper, Alex, Henry and Benedict.
The Under 15s played on Wednesday in the Carrara Elite League.
The Spartans played a great first half versus Potato FC, winning 6 to 2 but in the second half we lost shape and focus. This resulted in a come back for the Potato FC and the game ended in 7 all. Lots to learn from this game, including never to underestimate your opponent!
We have seen great goals this evening from Bongani Mhlanga and Peter Osborne.
