Under 19 Boys
The Boys Tournament took place on Monday July 26 at the Nissan Arena versus Helensvale State High. The first game was all entertainment, with goals on both sides. The Boys put in all their effort and had a lead of 6 to 5, unfortunately they lost 6 to 7. 

This performance gave us hope for the second game against Robina State High. The result was a 5-nil win! We were then unluckily beaten by Mansfield in Game 3 and in Game 4 we went down to a superior St. James. 

Thank you to our team who represented our College to a very high standard. Oliver Leal, Peter Osborne, Raffi Anderson, Will Burns, Rylan Kennedy and Phoenix Crampton.

Under 19 Girls
The Girls Tournament took place on Monday July 26 at the Nissan Arena. After coming runners up in the Byron Bay tournament, the girls landed themselves in a difficult pool. The first game was a warmup for the girls, who had to find their feet again after a big break between futsal games. They unfortunately went down 4 to 1 in an exciting match. 

After an early start, the girls went on to play three more games, all with difficult opposition. The girls always invest 100 percent and represent Somerset College with pride at each game. It was all smiles and laughter for the day, with the girls' sense of friendship and fun a major factor. 

Congratulations to Lisa Sinclair, Serenity Thake, Jessica Nguyen, Nina Gray, Phoebe Ross, Victoria Jones, Emily Mai and Vivian Milosevic on representing The College with pride.

Under 13 Girls
The Girls Tournament took place on Tuesday July 27 at Coomera Indoor Centre. The girls were ready from the first minute versus Mabel Park. This resulted in a win for the Spartans. The second game versus Corinda went smoothly with great combinations and goals. 

In third game against Helensvale, the girls maintained momentum and showed some class in great teamwork. The girls had a tie against Kawana Waters placing first in the group. They met Islamic College in the Semi-Finals in an a very intense game. Somerset had a deserved win to head into the final against their biggest rivals, King's Christian College. 

King's managed two early goals before Spartans scored a great goal by Zara. Unfortunately, King's managed another two goals in the second half, with the final score 1 to 4. Well done to the team who reached the finals two years in a row. 

Georgie Zerbst, Zara Ryan, Ari Thake, Livi Budd, Havana Lopez and Pearl Shipley.

Under 12 Girls
The Girls Tournament took place on Wednesday July 28 at Coomera Indoor Centre. The girls seemed nervous but won 1-nil to King's in their first game. The second game versus Corinda State High ended in a 4-nil loss.

The third game the team defeated Islamic College 3 to 1 to advance to the semi-final.

In one of the best performances, the girls took on St. Andrews but their opponents were too strong. 

Well done to our Year 6 and 7 students; Arya Bathols-Denzongpa, Ellie Davies, Lava Lopez, Natalia Zotti, Emiti McNamara and Sarah Nickels
