Once again St Edward’s College entered two teams into the Futsal competition and with new schools participating, it made the standard of Futsal much tougher than in recent years.
Both teams got off to a good start and had some convincing wins in the group stages, scoring plenty of goals. Due to finishing positions in the groups it meant that both St Edward’s teams were to face each other in the quarter finals. A quick reschedule by the organisers prevented this from happening although the boys were quite keen.
Unfortunately Eddies 2 lost their quarter final to a strong MacKillop College, Tuggerah team, which meant that Eddie’s 1, after winning their quarter final game, faced MacKillop in the semi final. A great end to end game finished with St Edwards’ 1 winning 8-4 to make it through to the final against Berkeley Vale High. The St Edward’s team were experienced with three players; Owen Bradstreet, Charlie Entwhistle and Chase Huxtable who had won the title the previous year.
Another great game from the St Edward’s team resulted in a 3-1 win to see St Edward’s crowned Central Coast Champions for the second successive year. The team will now go to Broadmeadow in week eight to contest the FNSW Champions of Champions.
