14 years girls perform solidly (NSW)


The 14 years girls travelled to Runaway Bay to compete at the Australian Futsal  Titles from November 22 to 24.

The girls had five new team members mixed with four members from last year  all looking forward to the challenge.

They started the competition strongly with a 3-2 win over Maclean High School  in what was a very good game.

Unfortunately, following this game the girls found it harder to find the net and  despite some good displays went down 2-3 to Clontaf HS, 0-2 to Assissi College  (the eventual winners), 0-2 to Southern Cross Catholic College and 0-3 to Mt  Alvernia High School.

All the games were close and at this level the difference between scoring and  just missing is crutial.

Many of the girls will still be eligible for this age group next year so will learn a  lot from this experience.

This was the last Futsal team to attend the Australian Championships.

Four teams – the 19 years boys and girls, the 15 years boys and the 14 years  girls missed out on the semi-finals, with the 16 years girls falling just short of  being Australian Champions finishing runners up in their age division.

These teams could not have enjoyed this opportunity without a lot of help.

The teams send a big thank you goes to all the parent helpers, community  transport, for use of their vehicles, and especially Bellingen Diggers Swimming  Club for their generous support of these teams.
