It was a feast of futsal football at Menai last week as school teams across Sydney battled it out in the 2008 Football NSW Schools Regionals Futsal Championships. A total of 45 teams competed in the indoor football under-14 boys and girls, under-16 boys and girls and the under-19 boys and girls divisions.
The highlight of the tournament was a sudden death penalty win to Kogarah High School over St Johns Park High School. With the scores tied at 3-all at full-time Kogarah were able to clinch the win 6-5 in a penalty shoot-out.
Sutherland Shire based schools dominated the competition winning every event. All grand final teams will play in the Football NSW State Championships being held at Penrith next month.
