Fast & Furious 21 – Summer Futsal Grand Finals Wrap

Fortunately, the 20-21 Summer Futsal season went unhindered by you know what. The Grand Finals were not without their upsets with there being four. The Grand Finals results are as follows.

UNDER 8s: The first game of the night and the first upset. The Super Sonics took the sting out of season Premiers Malanda Hornets in a closely matched game with the result 2-1. Sonics’ Buster McArthur was awarded the Best Player trophy which came with a $20 SportsPower voucher. Hornets player Braxton Palmer won the Sorenson Medal for the Most Valuable Player of the season with 23 votes from the referees.

UNDER 9s: The second upset came when the Bin Chickens defeated season Premiers Burra Boys 3-2 with Archie Kefford binning a hat-trick. Burra Boy Banjo Kratzmann was awarded the Best Player trophy which came with a $20 SportsPower voucher. Another Burra Boy, Bailey Mete won the Sorenson Medal for the Most Valuable Player of the season with 29 votes from the referees.

UNDER 10s: The Joeys continued their winning ways with a 10-3 victory over Fireballs. The major goal scorer was Simba Makoti who put 4 into the back of the net. Marco Tognola was awarded the Best Player trophy which came with a $20 SportsPower voucher. Joeys’ Dane Portelli won the Sorenson Medal for the Most Valuable Player of the season with 20 votes from the referees. Joeys also won the Club’s Most Successful Team trophy for the 2020-21 Summer Futsal season, the only team to be undefeated.

UNDER 11s: The Malanda Wasps outstung the Malanda Hornets 6-4. Hornets’ Tom McKean was awarded the Best Player trophy which came with a $20 SportsPower voucher. Wasps’ Corey McKinnon won the Sorenson Medal for the Most Valuable Player of the season with 20 votes from the referees.

UNDER 12s: Savage savaged the Eagles 7-2 with Luca Tognola booting a hat-trick of goals. Eagles’ Miren Garate was awarded the Best Player trophy and $20 SportsPower voucher. Jeremiah Michael from the Randoms team won his second Sorenson Medal for the Most Valuable Player of the season with 20 votes (after a countback with Luka Tognola also with 20 votes).

UNDER 13s: The third upset of the evening came when Redbellies terminated season Premiers Terminators 10-3. Redbellies’ Kai Hammond scored 6, a double hat trick, and for this and other efforts around the court was duly awarded the Best Player trophy. Kai also won his second Sorenson Medal for the Most Valuable Player of the season with 18 votes from the referees.

UNDER 14s: Arguably the greatest upset of the night was Ninja Knights victory over The Amigos 12-7. Previously, The Amigos had won all there encounters with the Ninjas convincingly but on Grand Final night the Ninjas found their passing game and outplayed the Amigos despite a resurgence by Amigos late in the second half. Major goal scorers were Jacob Bye with 4 and Brodie Cahill and Cooper Watson with a hat-trick each. Ninja’s Jacob Bye was awarded the Best Player trophy. Ninja’s Kayde Cummings won his second Sorenson Medal for the Most Valuable Player of the season with 17 votes from the referees.

MIXED: All 4 Fun whipped the muleta away from Skeletors Matadors to chasten them to 7-1 defeat. However, the scores belie a very close game that was marred by inaccurate, at times unlucky, finishing by the Matadors. Funster Calem Sorenson was awarded the Best Player trophy. Eddie Murgha from Destiny FC won the Sorenson Medal for the Most Valuable Player of the season with 31 votes from the referees.

MENS: It promised to be a doozy of a game with so many experienced good players across both teams and the crowd wasn’t disappointed. Despite having Dylan Cummings out with an injured ankle, Hot Favourites ran out winners against the strong and fast Howe FC 5-4 in a game that was goal for goal. Scores were kept to a minimum by very acrobatic work from both goalkeepers, Dillon Duesbury for HF and Peter Lalao for Howe. Major goal scorers were Jacques Wanemut with a hat-trick for Howe FC and Calem Sorenson and Lachie Binnie with two each. Jacques Wanemut was awarded the Best Player trophy. Dylan Cummings won the Sorenson Medal for the Most Valuable Player of the season with 24 votes from the referees, for the fourth time equalling the Club record for the most Sorenson Medals won by a player.

Thankyou to all the players, SportsPower for donating prize vouchers, the parents and carers who bring their junior players along, the referees, the players and parents who help pack up at the end of the night and the committee that keeps things humming along. The next Winter season of futsal begins in April after the school holidays. You can find more info on the Tableland Futsal Club home page.
