The Under 14 Girls and Under 8 Boys became Champion of Champions in the School Futsal Titles. The Under 9 Boys and Under 10 Boys were Runners Up.

During Term One, the Somerset Futsal teams participated in the Regional School Futsal Titles (Stage 1). Teams that ended in the top two from their group were invited to play the Champion of Champions (Stage 2). All Matches were played at the Nissan Arena in Brisbane.

Under 14 Girls

The Girls played three matches in their group. They played very well in their games getting the results they wanted. This gave the side a good draw for the knockout games in the afternoon. The Quarter Final and Semi-finals were a win. This brought us towards the grand final versus Kawana Waters State College. The girls gave their best, and this led to a win! 

Congratulations to Sarah Nickels, Havana Lopez, Livi Budd, Ari Thake, Ellie Davies, Georgie Zerbst, Zara Ryan and Arya Denzongpa-Bathols.

Under 10 Girls

The girls started the semi-final with a lot of confidence and a combination of play to make shots on goal. But King's Christian College played their best and this made it a very hard game. The result was one goal for Somerset and two goals for King's. Congratulations to King's who also won the Final. 

Well done to our girls who were undefeated in morning group stage: Emma Cordner, Audrey Hilbert, Mayuko Takahata, Arianna Reading, Luella Zerbst, Evie Ladbrook, Imogen Sounness.

Under 10 Boys

In the Under 10 Boys category, Somerset had two teams qualified for the Champion of Champions. With a very difficult draw in the morning our Spartans met challenges in every game. This resulted in wins and defeats. But we still qualified for the knockout stage! Somerset had two teams in the semi-finals, which meant two under 10 teams in the top four from Southern Queensland! 

Only one team progressed into the final. In the Final we were defeated by Peregian Beach College. 

Well done to our Spartans! William Baillie, Danny Wang, Zhander Griffiths, Harper Loon, Oliver Ng, Connor Millar-Martin, Max Bowden, Paxton Stewart, James Baumfield, Henry Pevy, Izaak Barclay, Hugo Hasselle, Edward Hassett, Benedict Thompson, Andrew Blatchford, Vaughan Furlong.

Under 9 Boys

Similar to the Under 10s, we had two teams qualify for Under 9. Unfortunately, only one team progressed into the knockout stage. The team was undefeated in the final and played Mary MacKillop Catholic College. After a win in the group stage, they took their revenge and defeated the side. Runners up was a great result! 

Well done Jakub Pitura, Ethan Kelly-Correa, Kay Edgley, Sion Kim, Louis Hodge, Oliver Moir.

Under 8 Boys

Our youngest futsal Spartans won the Regional Gold Coast Titles versus a very strong Luthernan Ormeau District Rivers School (LORDS). At the Champion of Champions, we were facing LORDS again in the Final. Spartans made a good plan to stop LORDS from scoring, which worked well. At the end of the match, it was tie. Extra time with the golden goal rule (first team that score, wins) made a descision. The Spartans scored the winner after five-minutes in the extra time. For the second time this year, the Under 8 became the winner in their age group. 

Congrats to Denham Barry, Dylan Hu, Hunter Sharples, Zach Sanders, Sam Thompson, Thomas Chudzinski, Lachlan Watkins.  

What is next? The Australasian Champion of Champions (Stage 3) is the pinnacle event of the programme. This is where all qualifying schools from each of their respective Champion of Champions will compete for the title of best school in the country. This tournament will be held in September in Queensland.
