Excitement and drama at 2016-17 Football House Cups

Report by Year 5 Leader Martin Breen

After an exciting two weeks of football, the 2016-17 Football House Cups have been decided. Both competitions were full of excitement and the level of participation, effort and sportsmanship was truly outstanding.

In the Year 3 and 4 tournament, the Tigers got off to a shaky start – barely having enough players to field a team! They scraped through to the final after some outstanding effort from those who turned up.

There they met the Lions – who had made it through their semi-final matchup – in a thrilling final. With nothing separating the teams at full time, it went to sudden death! Yuya just managed to edge out Yuu, sealing the win to claim the cup for the Tigers.

In the Years 5 and 6 tournament, the Tigers were knocked out in the semi-finals by the mighty Bears. They were joined in the final by the Lions, who had won a gripping semi-final, with Krish settling the game with a last minute goal to break the Elephant’s hearts.

The final was a nerve wracking match! The Bears pushed forward with skill and fluidity, but time and time again met an unbreachable Lion defence! With the scores all square, the match went to sudden death.

Two rounds of sudden death still couldn’t separate them, so it came down to one-on-one, Cameron vs Ashvin. After a heroic effort on goal from Ashvin, Cameron stole the ball and finished calmly to give the Bears the win and the trophy. Nailbiting stuff!
