Another exciting term of Junior Futsal concluded at the ASB Arena on Sunday the 26th of March.
A healthy number of IBU teams once again flew the Futsal flag including the girls-only Broadfins and in the mixed leagues the Sushi, Burger Boyz and South Coast Strikers. IBU was also well represented with many players turning out for the Project Futsal Academy and Samba Futsal.
For the 12th Grade Sharks it was another great result, winning the U12 title. The Sharks bounced back from a 7-6 loss to Olé in the penultimate round to take a final round 11-3 win over Team Wellington to snatch the title on goal difference as other results went their way.
Led by the goal scoring heroics of the Hale brothers the team is looking forward to carrying their form into the winter season as well as pressing for selection into the Capital Football U12 teams due to contest the 2018 Futsal Youth Nationals in Palmerston North in July.
Well done to all of our teams, players and supporters for a great off-season.
