Sport Sunday, 04 Oct 2020

Congratulations to the St James QLD City Central U19 Boys team for winning the Queensland Invitational Futsal Championship undefeated. Two students also named 19 Boys Golden Boot and All Star 5 Selected Court Player.

The St James U19 Boys team was invited to compete at the Queensland Invitational Futsal Championships 2020 hosted by the Australian Futsal Association over the September school holidays.

The tournament ran for four gruelling days with intense high tempo futsal games with two-three games a day and only a game break between matches.  This style of competition tests the mental and physical attributes of all players throughout the competition. 

The St James team progressed through the tournament undefeated - they were crowned champions and shocked the crowd and tournament officials with this massive achievement.
