The Saturday 19 October Futsal competition was a very exciting event for Southern Hills Christian College. The venue was packed with players and families from Christian schools and churches. In this round of Indoor soccer competition, the College fielded three teams; Under 14, Under 12 and Under 10.
The Under 10 team played a very fast paced game. They consistently put pressure on the opposition and played as a single unit, displaying fantastic teamwork and showing significant improvement in skills. It was exciting to watch them play and make their way to the final. The Under 10 final was a nail biter and they played exceptionally well until the end. Everyone was so proud of their performance and they finished in second place.
The Under 12 team gave all they have and ended up in a nail-biting penalty shoot-out final. Three players were chosen to represent the team in the penalty. With the crowd holding their breath combining the perseverance and experience of our three representatives, they booted in 3 penalty goals winning the champion trophy. The spectators erupted with big cheers of appreciation and celebration.
This is the first time we have had an Under 14 team and they played the greatest number of games overall. The team played valiantly until the very end and were up against bigger and stronger players. Their resilience pushed them to the limit, bouncing back every time they conceded a goal. The Under 14 team managed to score numerous goals and finished fourth place. The crowd was proud of their performance and pleased to see they played until the last game.
We would like to congratulate and thank everyone who turned up to play, cheer and support the Southern Spirit Futsal team. Special mentions go to our wonderful volunteer coaches who have assisted significantly. In Term 3, Mr Steve Enright, Mr Wes Van Den Hoogan, Mrs Melissa Lee and senior student Daniel Parris have all invested a tremendous amount of time and effort in developing Southern Spirit Futsal teams. We also want to thank God for all the wonderful opportunities presented to us, helping us to build lasting relationship with the wider communities.
