Footy Finesse at Futsal Zone Day

Three Northcross Boys teams took part in the North Harbour Intermediate Tournament at the North Shore Events Finder Stadium in the last week of the term .

Year 8 Boys Team 1



Year 7 Boys Team 1

Many of the Y7 Team 1 players had football experience but very limited experience on a futsal court. Game one they won by default and were fortunate enough to have a friendly game to get an understanding of the speed and pace of the game. The boys faced a very strong Rosmini team first up. NX were up by 1 goal but unfortunately conceded a goal in the final stages of the game to close out a 1 -1 second game. They then played Glenfield and combined some great passing to come away with a 7-0 win and nake it through to the play off rounds. Whangaparaoa finished first in their pool – no easy beat. Our team started well and shot out to an early lead 2-0. However Whangaparaoa came back strong with 2 goals of their own. It could have been more but credit must go to Llewellyn –  in goal – who saved two outstanding shots. In the end the boys drew 2-2 and were very unlucky not to go through to the next round due to count back rules. The players had a great experience, learnt more about the game of Futsal and did not lose a game! Many of the boys are keen to give it a go next year – that’s a win!
