Action between Wiggles and Thunder in the Junior Semi-Final

March 28, 2017

It was a big night last Thursday for junior Futsal players with the semi-finals and finals of various grades being decided at the Kingaroy State High School indoor sports auditorium.

Action was fierce on the courts in the sudden-death semi-finals in the Juniors and Teens, before the Grand Finals wrapped up the end of the summer season.

Minis players had a bye but will be back in action this Thursday (March 30) to mark the end of their season.

Also on Thursday, the finals of the Youth competition will be played, followed by presentations.

Training for the Regionals is now in full swing, with players taking to the courts on Sundays to practise hard.
