Somerset College participated in the Summit Sport Futsal Cup Finals Day and the Queensland School Futsal Cup during Week 10 of Term Three.

The Girls were runners up in the Shield division from the Summit Cup and in the QSF Cup, our Boys and Girls teams both reached the semi finals.

U14 Summit Sport Futsal Cup Finals Day

A great start to the week was coming runners up in the U14s Shield Summit Sport Futsal Cup!

Earlier this year, we had won our futsal match verse Hillcrest Christian College. The win put us at the top of the South Coast Region. This meant we were able to attend the finals day this week! A total of 56 schools participated in the Summit Cup and Somerset was one of the final eight schools invited for the Finals Day!

Monday 11 September, the Under 14 Girls Somerset Futsal Team arrived at their first game, nervous but eager to play against one of the better teams in the tournament, Islamic College Brisbane. This game determined whether we would play in the Cup or Shield division of the tournament. 

It was 1-all for a majority of the 40-minute game, however, in the last 10 seconds, the opposition received a penalty. The pressure was on- a win, they get to play in the Cup division, or a miss/save, we would play another two 5-minute halves. With an impeccable penalty shot, we had lost 2 to 1.

Fortunately, we did not let that stop us as we won our next match which put us in the grand final of the shield division. We put great pressure onto the opposition in the grand final, but with a few injured players missing, this was not enough to beat Chancellor State College.

Thank you to Coach Nigel and Maarten for their effort and support in leading us through this tournament.

U14s Queensland School Futsal Cup (Girls)

After starting our week getting runners up in the Under 14s Shield Summit Sport Futsal Cup, we were eager for success in the U14s Queensland School Futsal Cup.

Due to injuries and the Celebration of Entrepreneurship, we were missing key players, however, our first two games on Tuesday (12 September) were great as we scored six in each and in the third game, we won 4-nil.

On Wednesday, we knew we were going to be up against harder teams as we progressed in the top division. In the quarter finals, we won 6 to 1. Our semifinals were up against one of our biggest rivals: King's Christian College. Unfortunately, we lost 5 to 2. This meant our next game was the play off for third place. 

With a 5 to 4 score, we took fourth place with Islamic College Brisbane taking third.

Thank you to Coach Nigel and Maarten for their effort and support in leading us through this tournament. Our team really enjoyed representing Somerset College at this state tournament.

U14s Queensland School Futsal Cup (Boys)

The Under 14 Boys set out to compete in the QSF Cup at Coomera Indoor Centre on Tuesday and Wednesday, a big event with lots of quality Futsal teams. Day 1 was tough with only five players available, but the boys battled through winning one of their games, which was enough to progress to the cup knockout round. 

Day 2, backed by more reinforcements saw us win our quarter final, we then narrowly lost to a good Kawana Waters College side 4 to 2. Finally, playing for third, we beat Chancellor 6 to 4 to wrap up a great tournament, finishing third overall. A great achievement. 

I am proud of all the boys, this being an U14 tournament, with only one U14 player: Nash Kennedy. The rest from Under 13: Eli Dirckze, Zac Marshall, Will Bittar, Jacob Kellij and two courageous u12s in Mila Oldfield and Liam Seymour. 

A fantastic two days out, showing the progression of our programme, representing the College!
