The Somerset Spartans Futsal Club kicked of last week and this year Somerset College has 10 Futsal teams playing each week. Please read a few match reports below.

Under 8 Pink

The Under 8 Pink, all girls Futsal team played their first match versus the Dolphins. The opposition had some good players and better opportunities during the game but the Spartan girls had a great experience, lots of fun.

Thank you to all parents for the support and cheering the girls up during the game.

Under 8 Blue and Orange

The Under 8 Blue played their first match this season versus Under 8 Orange. Both teams are made up of Year 2 students.

Well done to both teams, good luck for the rest of the season.

Under 8 White

It was a very promising start to the Futsal season for the boys who clearly picked up right where they left the football season. It was an intense game with the opposition putting the boys under pressure. Despite this they managed to work some nice passes and score some great goals. A special mention to Ethan’s chip over the keeper. The goalkeeping efforts were also very commendable with a special shoutout to Franklin for pulling off a series of very impressive saves during his stint in goal.

Overall, it was a very even and enjoyable 5 to 4 defeat.

Under 8 Green

The Under 8 Green team kicked off their 2020 Futsal campaign against a well-rehearsed and evidently experienced Magic line-up. Ambitions and hopes were high, as for many it was their first official game of Futsal. Magic started with purpose, quickly putting Somerset on the defensive. Despite some brave goal line defence from Knox and Dylan, Magic converted their first goal.

The boy’s tried relentlessly to keep the opposition at bay but Magic kept the goals rolling following some impressive counterattack and pinpoint passing. The game saw Sam, Hunter, Levi and Jakub all try their hand in goals, an exciting new addition to our formation. Despite going down to a classy opponent, 19 nil, the boys showed great character playing to the very last minute.

We were immensely proud of all the Spartans who played and we look forward to next week's game.

Under 8 Black

What a great start to the season for the Under 8 Black Team. For their first game, the boys were very impressive and their defence was outstanding. Right from the start it was evident it was all about teamwork and this created some solid pressure on their opposition. In the end, Lachlan scored two fantastic goals and Alex shot one past the goalkeeper.

Well done to Joshua, Will and Max for your efforts as well. The final score was 4 to 3 to the Sharks, however it was a very well-matched game and could have gone either way.

Under 9 and Under 10

The Under 10 Somerset had a very strong and competitive first match, narrowly defeated to Somerset's Under 9 team. For many of our players it was their first game of Futsal ever! As such was very impressive how they all performed and came together as a team. There were some amazing saves in goal by Dash, great passing and dribbling from Miranda, Farri and Eli as well as some beautiful goals from Zac. In summary the game was one all players can be proud of.

The first Under 9 Futsal game for the season saw two Somerset teams go head to head. It looked as though it took a while for both the Under 9s and the Under 10s to warm up and get into the swing of the game. Maybe it was the transition from having just completed a season playing on grass and now having to play on a hard surface. Or maybe it was because the U10s started the game with only three players but were able to borrow Harper Loon from the U9s while they waited for their missing players to arrive.

The U10 team were only short players for approximately five minutes, but within that five minutes Harper scored a goal against his own team, and accidently kicked the ball into the face of his own teammate, Danny Wang. Danny went down rather theatrically, and we thought that he may need to go off injured. But with a bit of encouragement from his dad (Coach Sean) he continued. Once the Under 10 missing players arrived, Harper swiftly returned to his Under 9 team. Just to put things into reality for Harper. One of the dads yelled out "you're now on the losing side”. Harper quickly realised why and evened out the score. The Under 9 team won 8 to 4.

Under 11

The Under 11 play in the Carrara Super League, with their first game against Robina. The Spartans led for almost the whole game but in the last minutes of the game Robina showed their strengths and took a few late goals. The side had no subs and this led to players getting tired towards the end of the match. The final score was 5 to 6 to Robina.

Under 13

First game will be played on Saturday October 24.
