Our Lady of Fatima 6-a-side tournament
Sunday 12th July, 2009

This year Our Lady of Fatima Parish has once again organized a 6 a side football tournament. The laurentian football club has entered 4 teams namely LFC “A”, LFC “B”, LFC “C”, LFC “D”. It was fortunate that all the teams were placed in different groups.

The first match was of LFC “B” against Christ Church. They lost the match 3-0. They really played badly and the goal keeping was terrible. LFC “A” played their games well and topped their group, 7 points scoring 7 goals and conceding just 1. LFC “C” did try hard but they could only manage 1 win and lost the other 2 games. So they are out of the tournament. The surprise was LFC “D”, consisting of the juniors, led by JARED, with BRUCE, KENDRICK, CALVIN, RYAN, ANDREW and anchored by RONNIE with support from EVAIRIST in the goal with his lucky goal keeping gloves. They drew 2 of their matches and the 3rd was a walk over. This way they came 2nd in their group by score just 2 and conceding the same. Now back to LFC “B”. since their first match they had a big gap and eagerly waited for their second match which was a walk over.

Their last and final match was a do or die situation as they had to win to qualify. It was against the ROYAL DAREDEVILS who came into the tournament with a reputation as they won their first match 10-0, and have seasoned and experienced players on their side. The match waited for eagerly by our players and many supporters of FOOTBALL. The match started with a very firery pace and instantly our boys took the lead through GOOGIE. This really was a shock for the Royal DareDevils. Soon ALAN added another 2 to strengthen the lead. The score line ended as 3-1, an own goal was scored, but nothing can take away the great victory our boys achieved in this game.

The quarterfinals are on and its GOOD LUCK to our teams and hope they make the semi-finals. GUYS KEEP UP THE GOOD and HARD WORK...
