Yesterday saw a great day of Futsal at Bankstown Basketball Stadium with the 12, 14 and 16 Boys doing battle during the Bankstown Regional’s.
The under 12 Boys Final All Saints Grammar took on Panania North Public School. This game was a great contest with both sides playing some nice attacking Futsal. All Saints Grammar were to strong on the day running out winners 4-0.
Condell Park High School played Christian Brothers College Burwood in the under 14 Boys Final. Condell Park HS didn’t lose a game during the group phase and was looking to extend their winning ways. This game had some current Futsal Premier League players on show. Condell Park was too strong on the day running out 5-2 victors.
The under 16 Boys was an epic encounter between Liverpool Boys High School and East Hills Boys High School. In the group round East Hills won 4-3 in a tight encounter. The final this was always going to be even East Hills took an early lead Liverpool Boys fought back to and equalized, both sides had a number of chances to win. Neither side could find the winner and we entered extra time Liverpool Boys took the lead in the first period. The drama was building, East Hills hit the post, and Liverpool Boys had some chances to seal the game. East Hills found the equalizer with 5seconds remaining after Liverpool Boys were in foul trouble and got a 6 foul penalty. East Hills equalized and forced the game into extra time. The scores were locked at 2all at the end of extra time.
The Shootout was full of drama East Hills missed the first two penalties Liverpool boys mad no mistakes, East Hills then put the next one away. Liverpool boys also converted their 3rd penalty while East Hills scored the remaining two penalties. Liverpool Boys hit the post and the keeper saved the final two penalties. The shootout entered sudden death with the 6th penalty East Hills missed the target and Liverpool Boys stepped up to win the game. Liverpool Boys penalty cannoned off the post into the keeper and into the net to give them victory. This was truly an entertaining game of Futsal and both schools showed great sportsmanship after the match. Both sides did their schools proud.
