This week we had two Senior School teams attending the Gold Coast AFA School Futsal Titles. Read on about the performance from our Senior Futsal teams.

Under 16 Boys

The Boys tournament took place Wednesday 5 August. Having 10 teams in the competition, the Under 16s needed to end in the top two from the group to reach the semi-finals.

The first game versus Pacific Pines was the most difficult. We lost this game and knew from then the day was going to be a tough one. The second game versus Robina State High the boys won and gave us hope for the following games.

In game three versus Shailer Park State High the boys played their best game of the tournament. We deserved a win but unfortunately did not score one. Shailer Park came out winners one minute before full time.

Somerset needed to win the final game to end on second in the group. And we did! We were then counting our goal difference between Assisi and Shailer Park. The boys were very unlucky missing out the final by one goal difference.

Next time hopefully the luck is on our side for Peter Osborne, Oliver Leal, Ethan Robinson, Bongani Mhlanga, William Burns and Hayden Goldsmith.

Under 19 Girls

The U19s played the following day. The Girls were in a group with Hillcrest and Robina State High and needed to play both schools two times to decide which two teams will play the final at the end of the day.

The first game kicked off at 8.00am, which meant the girls needed a few minutes to wake up. The team played well and scored two goals for a win with the final score 2 to 1.

The second game we lost against Robina State High but we shifted focus to winning the third game which would qualify the side for the finals. The girls won and qualified the finals meaning scores from the fourth game against Robina State High did not count. We took the game easy and saved energy for the final, hoping Robina would underestimate us in the final.

We made our master plan to beat them. This plan worked great at the start of the match but the game took too long to get the result we wanted, leaving us runners up at the Gold Coast AFA School Futsal Titles.

Congratulations Serenity Thake, Amy Jackson, Nina Gray, Jessica Nguyen, Amy Barry, Nikiah McNamara.
