Solomon U12 and U15 Futsal teams impressive in Australian championship

The Solomon Islands junior futsal teams have preformed impressively in the recent futsal national championship in Canberra, Australia which ended last Friday.

The U12 boys managed to reach the grand-final after beating NSW Thunder by 5-4. They eventually went down to Victoria Magic by 3-10 in the final to collect silver and came second in their category.

In the U15 category, the Solomon team came 4th after loosing to NSW Thunder in the semi-final. However, pride was restored after Alex (pictured below) was named as Player of the Tournament in the U15 category.

Indeed the young futsal boys have made the nation proud with their exceptional performances.
