9x9 Soccer Team Make Semi-Finals


The upper primary soccer boys took part in the Pacific Pines 9-a-side Soccer Tournament on Wednesday 28 April, playing against teams from many northern Gold Coast schools. The competition is held annually at the Pacific Pines Soccer Club.

King's Pimpama Year 5/6 boys played three tense group stage games before being eliminated in the semi-finals by Park Lake State School in a nail-biting penalty shootout. Eight teams from six schools participated on the day, creating a hugely competitive day for all schools.

"Our team of boys played extremely well. We made it to the semi-finals. The score was 3-3 and went to a penalty shoot-out. The boys did their very best. However, the other team managed to get the win. I am so proud of our team and how well we did," said Year 6 student Mitchell Garcia.

The team would like to thank Mr Ruben for coaching them on the day and Mr Spink for the training leading up to the competition.
