On Thursday, November 15th St. Peter’s entered their first ever team into the Cork Schools Futsal Tournament. Futsal, a variation of 5 a side soccer, is played on an indoor hard court and focuses predominantly on the skill and fast decision making aspects of the game of soccer.
Drawn in a group with St Brogans and Hamilton High, both of Bandon, and hot favourites St. Francis College Rochestown, St. Peter’s emerged as group winners with a 100% record defeating Brogans 5-2, Hamilton High 4-2 and upsetting Rochestown College 5-4 in a thrilling encounter.
They joined the winners of the other 4 sections in the grand final on Tuesday November 20th and despite being rank outsiders beat Midleton CBS 4-2, before succumbing to a 2-1 loss to Douglas CS & a controversial 3-2 loss to eventual winners Kinsale Community School.
The whole squad contributed massively throughout both days and Mr. McSweeney expressed how proud he is of not only the effort but the positive attitude and togetherness exhibited by the whole squad. Well done all and we will be back to take the top prize next year!
