9th Grade Prove Point at 2011 Nationals

The 2011 9th Grade top team had a successful season this year finishing 3rd equal in the league and also winning the league Championship Cup at the end of the season.


The boys achieved their goal and reached the top 8 to contest for Nationals Glory…by coming 7th after pool play after pool play they also jointly won the Best Defensive Team Award for the Tournament.


The final day saw the boys play Western Springs who placed 2nd after pool play. After half time our lad where 2-0 down, however lifted by a spirited team talk and having Head Coach Willy Gerdsen cheering them on from the sideline the boys battled hard and with incredible fortitude and ended up drawing 3-3 after full and extra time. Penalties then proved our downfall.


Battered and bruised afterwards the tournament was an amazing experience for our boys. And for the four 8 year olds, who, if they keep up their good performances next season may see them add valuable experience to the 9th grade Nationals Squad Next Year.


The team would also like to thank Willy for his support and for McDonalds after the tournament.
