Our Under 9s narrowly lost their Futsal Grand Final going down 6-5 after conceding a goal in the last seconds.
The boys had a terrific season, they played really well all year and deservedly finished on top of the ladder.
GeelongSC dominated the first half of the Final with goals from Alexander Matherson. The Jet Rangers kept clawing back with goals leaving the supporters from both teams on the edge of their seats.
A penalty was awarded to GeelongSC, but the kick was just put wide which would have made the score 5-5.
Two minutes later the ball spilt to Ed Creati in the middle of the court and he sweetly struck the ball in the top left corner to level the score, it was the best goal of the tournament. The boys and GeelongSC supporters erupted with joy.
With 30 seconds to play, Jet Rangers had a kick from the sideline, time was ticking away and with 8 seconds on the clock, a Jets player flicked the ball in the back of our net.
The Geelong Soccer Club would like to congratulate all the under 9 Futsal players for playing an excellent tournament. Next year we’ll have another go at the Final.
Big thanks to Berni Creati for coaching the team.
