The 2012 Coomera River Cup opened in style this week with 6 school teams from 5 different cities contesting the 15 Girls competition at Assisi Catholic College at Upper Coomera on the Gold Coast.
Assisi (Gold Coast) were joined by Deception Bay SHS (Redcliffe), Peter Claver College (Ipswich), Albany Creek SHS (Brisbane) and Rivermount College (Logan) in an enthralling evening of Futsal.
All schools showed great skill but Albany Creek SHS proved too strong in the end, although Assisi College pushed them in the Grand Final, eventually going down 2-0. Congratulations to the Albany girls and master coach, Paul Freeman (pictured with his team), for a deserved win.

This year the event is proudly sponsored by the Australian Futsal Association.
