On Sunday 5th June we travelled the short journey to Brunel University to compete in the regional tournament, having won the Essex tournament back in February.
The boys didn't really get going in the first game, our movement was poor and we held on to the ball for too long which enabled CM futsal to take a 2-0 lead. We managed to pull a goal back through some lovely individual skill from Aurelien, but it wasn't enough and we lost the first game 2-1.
In the second game we were up against Escolla Futsal, both teams pressed well and intent on attacking on the counter which meant the game was open from start to finish. Goals from Eric, Xhejsson and Excellence got us our first win of the tournament.
In our final game we played our best futsal, our astute game plan worked, pressing high and forcing Gainsborough Futsal to make mistakes. The potent three of Alan, Eric and Excellence were able to demonstrate their usual attacking flair and all scoring brilliant team goals to win the game 3-2.
Well done to the futsal squad for being runners up at the regional tournament. Considering we were the only school and were playing against established futsal clubs the boys should feel proud that they held their own and played against better teams.
