After enjoying the success of their first season, the Warriors ending phase 1 on a high.
Having not played a match for a couple of months, the winter break and all the goodies they've eaten over Christmas. Hessle Sporting Warriors entered the Futsal Festival, the competitive element of the season.
* Results and tables are not published for any team under 11. These are FA set rules. However, Futsal is the only element of the season where this is allowed.*
Lack of match fitness, some porky bellies, the boys were still up for the challenge.
Warriors kicked off their Futsal Festival against Cottingham Rangers. Goals from Harvey, Charlie and Brooklyn saw the boys come out as 4-2 winners.
A 5 minute refreshment break saw the boys return to the field to play Sproatley. A very entertaining game of football. Lots of tricks, skills and commitment from all players involved. Warriors won the game 4-1 with superb goals from Hopper, Josh and Lucas all finding the net.
The final game saw the top 2 teams go head to head for first place in the league. A good North Ferriby side. A very, very closely contested game - 0-0 for the majority of it. A little lack of concentration saw Ferriby grab 2 goals, holding the lead until the end.
Ferriby finished winners of the group who will play Bilton United in the Semi Finals. While Warriors will play against a strong Sproatley side in their Semi Final.
It has to be said, star of the day goes to Harry the Goalkeeper. Confident, full of confidence, composure, his speed at coming off the line, and nice footwork!
Well done to all the teams who entered. Hope to see you again at the next one!
Good luck to all the finalists! Enjoy, have fun and play with a smile on your face!
