Under 12 Girls and Under 8 Boys have had victory at the South Queensland Champion of Champions 2020. Both Somerset teams qualified for the Futsal titles earlier in the year, to compete against winners from Brisbane, the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.

The Girls played their tournament on Friday October 23. The first match was played against our rivals King's Christian College. It was a great game from both sides, ending 2-all.

Somerset won the following three games against Calvary Christian College, St Andrews Lutheran College and Islamic College, to make it to the semi finals versus Islamic College. The girls won for the second time to make the Finals, again facing King's.

After the earlier game, the girls knew they faced a tough challenge and had to perform their best to become the best of South Queensland. And the girls did it! Great teamwork made for great goals and brought us to victory.

Well done Sarah Nickels, Natalia Zotti, Ellie Davies, Zara Ryan, Ari Thake and Georgie Zerbst. Big thanks to Coach Nigel who worked with the Girls during the Futsal season.

After success from the girls, Monday October 26 was the opportunity for the Under 8 Boys. Only having two Under 8 teams qualify meant both teams were automatically placed into the final.

During the day the Boys played the Under 9s from King's Christian College, Calvary College and Faith Lutheran College. It was a great opportunity to practise against futsal players a year older. They picked up new tactics and set pieces.

The boys were all pumped for the final. In the first minutes Somerset created many changes but couldn't get the ball in goal. The side then managed a goal and gave the team confidence until end to book a well-deserved win over Calvary. Congratulations to William Baillie, Danny Wang, Harper Loon, Conner Millar-Martin, Zhander Griffiths and Oliver Ng.

Big thanks to Coach Sean who coaches the team in Futsal Club. It was evident the experience from playing Club helped during the school tournament.
