St John Bosco Catholic Primary School

Our boys did themselves proud in a tough competition between 10 teams. Futsal is essentially indoor 5-a-side football but with a heavier ball and square shaped goals. In our group we had to play 4 games, with the top two progressing into the semi-finals. Our objective was simply to do our best and enjoy it but we actually adapted to the game very quickly and scored plenty of goals. We won 3 and lost 1 to finish second in our group and qualify for the semi-finals, which was a great achievement.

We started the semi-final really well but just couldn’t score, then conceded a break-away goal which seemed to knock our confidence. We kept battling but unfortunately went out and ended up 4th overall. This was still really good, although the boys were disappointed not to win a medal. Well done to everyone though for some great football. Player of the tournament was Mati, who was fantastic, scoring 9 goals!
