Semi finals are the next step for our enthusiastic Community Cup Football team.
Throughout Term two our team of Year 6 and 7 players have played four games against other Sunshine Coast Independent schools in the after school Community Cup Competition. The team has won three games and drawn one game which will put them into the semi-finals next term.
The last game against Good Shepherd Lutheran Noosa was rather frustrating as our team had all the possession but Good Shepherd scored three goals against the run of play. Mark Kennedy scored a penalty after a hand ball in the box making the score 3-1 going into half time.
GCCC came out firing and very determined in the second half. The half was shortened due to time restraints but our gallant team managed to score two quick goals just before the final whistle sounded. The final came as the ball was crossed in across the face of goal, passing everyone except little Declan Martin who was positioned at the back post. He simply hit the ball into the back or the net. It was a great relief to score the equaliser just before the final whistle sounded.
The team is very grateful to the commitment of parents who transport students to each game and cheer enthusiastically throughout.
We now have to wait on this week’s results to find out who our opposition will be in next terms semi-final.
