After the massive success of the last tournament the girls wanted another! So in Week 22, we decided to have a second mini tournament. Again, we divided the girls up into teams of 3 with one of the coaches as the team captain.
The teams for the girls were as follows:
Chris’s Superstars – Coach Chris, Ruby and Melody.
Suzy’s Angels – Coach Suzy, Katie, Zoe and Katie S.
Simon’s Techys – Mr Foster, Kim, Beth and Beth S.
Each team played each other twice in a 6 minute game, with normal futsal rules.
After some pretty amazing matches the results were as follows:
Chris’s Superstars 3 – Suzy’s Angels 3
Simon’s Techys 1 – Suzy’s Angels 0
Simon’s Techys 1 – Chris’s Superstars 2
Chris’s Superstars 3 – Suzy’s Angels 1
Simon’s Techys 1 – Suzy’s Angels 4
Simon’s Techys 2 – Chris’s Superstars 5
So the final table was Chris finished top with 3 wins and 1 draw, Suzy finished second with 1 win, 1 draw and 2 defeats, and bringing up the rear was Simon with 1 win and 3 defeats.
Champions again, and for the second time of the Manor CE Academy Girls’ Futsal Tournament was Chris’s Superstars!
The boys decided they just wanted to play a full match. So we split the teams with Matthew and Noah as captains and they picked the teams they wanted, just like the good old-fashioned play ground way!
We played 15 minutes each way with a break for a drink and a chat about team tactics. The only change to the rules was that you could only score from beyond the last yellow line – this stopped players trying to score from anywhere.
Matthew’s team raced in to a 4 goal lead with some great team play from all but Noah’s clawed it back to 5-3 just before the break, helped by a mistake from Coach Chris in goal…
Second half was a much more even affair and Noah finally started to find the net with his shooting, making the final score a narrow win, 8-7 to Matthew.
At the end of each session tonight the players were all rewarded with an Easter Egg for all their hard work this half term – courtesy of Pro Coaching Academy.
