10 aside tournament

Today the year 6, 7 and 8’s played a soccer game in Sunnyvale against Green Island. The game was twelve minutes each way. We didn’t start very well because Green Island got a goal in the first few minutes. But we made a comeback scoring two goals in as many minutes. We got another goal just before half time. It was a little bit tiring because we had to go up the field and then back down the field.  We scored four more goals in the second half. We won seven to two. It was so much fun. I can’t wait to do it again.

Today the yr 6 ,7 and 8’s had a soccer game in Sunnyvale. When we got to Sunnyvale we had some kicks at the goal. When the game started I was midfield. The whistle blew at the ball went straight to the opposition teams goal. We had so many attempts at the goal but we didn’t seem to get it in the goal. Finally it got close to the goal but the opposition stole it off us and they got it down to our goalkeeper Alex. Suddenly they kicked it and they scored. We knew we had to make a come back and we did. They score was one all.
We were playing so well. It was halftime and we were ahead. After half time I was off for a few minutes. When I got back on the field I was not tired so I sprinted to get the ball and I got it. I was really close to the goal but I missed. The final score was 7-2 and we won. We all played a great and we were proud of our effort.


  1. Looks like great fun guys!
    I should have gone, what were the challenges and what were the successes? When I played soccer the boys would never pass the ball to me, did that happen or did you work as a team?

  5. Dear Room 6

    I think playing at tournaments are great fun! The wonderful thing about tournaments is you get to play sports and compete against people from other schools. You also get to make new friends while you are having all this fun.

    Your soccer tournament looks and sounds like it was a great success! Every year our school has a sports tournament with Ilminster School in Gisborne. We send teams up to them and they send other teams down to us. We have a shield at each school and this year, for the first time ever, we won both shields. The games that were at our school this year were Under 45 Rugby, Year 7 Netball, Boys Soccer, Girls Soccer, and Mixed Hockey. It was great fun having the Ilminster teams at our school. We all made friends with them, especially those kids that had billets.

    I hope you have more sports tournaments in the future. Do you have any that are coming up soon?

    Your friend
