A record four students were selected in the Glasshouse District Soccer teams to play at the Sunshine Coast Regional Carnival. Declan Martin returned for his second year in the team and Molly McCaughey, Ebony King and Cassidy Ferris were all selected for the girls team.
After weekly training and postponement due to huge rainfall the teams were ready to play.
Declan’s boys’ team worked really well together as a team creating and finishing many goal scoring opportunities. Declan scored two goals with one being a cracking shot off his left foot into the top corner of the net. During the carnival they defeated the eventual winners Coastal District, had some very close games and finished in 5th place overall.
The girls were part of the most successful Glasshouse Team ever. The team won four games, drew one and lost two. They had the opportunity to win the carnival if they beat Coastal in the last game but unfortunately were beaten 3-2 after a goal from Emily Roach gave Glasshouse an early lead. Coastal scored the winner in the last few minutes of the game.
Ebony was a solid defender keeping out many dangerous attacks. Molly was tireless on the wing putting many good balls into the strikers. Cassidy started the carnival as striker using her speed to run onto the ball but by the end of the carnival she had plYed in almost every position! She enjoyed getting the ball off anyone who had it and sending it toward goal.
The girls’ team finished in third place overall which was a fantastic performance as usually Glasshouse struggles to win a game. The students really enjoyed the experience and all three girls are keen to play again next year.
