Football boys reach an excellent 3rd place

Football School Championchips Finals at SSV Scheveningen

Accompanied by great weather, our team cycled to Laan van Poot to play in the grade 6 finals at the football field at SSV Scheveningen.The tournament was set up for 4 groups, each with 5 teams with only the group winners qualifying for the two semi-finals.
We played our first game against "De Notenkraker". Unfortunately we were somewhat amiss in our defense and our opponents got the better of us on three ocassions with the corresponding result of 0:3. Our second game against "De Zonnestraal" was played more cautiously and also led to a goal by Lars bringing us to 1: 0. Unfortunately the other team scored a goal as well. Nevertheless we continued with our good performance and won the third game against Montessori Valkenbos School with goals scored by Justus and Lars winning 2:1.
Since the group we played in was so well balanced, we still had a chance of reaching the semi-finals right up to our last group game. We showed our best game against the Yunnes Emre School playing tactful and strong football. We had numerous chances and reached a 1:0 lead through an own goal by our opponent. As is so often the case in football, we were not able to take advantage of the many chances we had and the opponent took advantage of a shot at the goal to tie the game.
At the end of the day, we achieved third place in our group with “De Zonnestraal” coming in fourth. The tournament winner goes on to Utrecht to play in the country finals.
