On Wednesday afternoon, Year 5 and 6 boys from Morasha competed in the first Maccabi Football tournament. Both Morasha teams did very well.
Morasha A which included Rafi, Asher, Liad, Noah, Alex and Joey lost their first game narrowly but went on to win their next four games and storm into the quarter finals.
Morasha B which included Amitai, Ikey, Asher, Koby, Elijah and Boaz had some mixed results – winning two and drawing one. This meant that there was a penalty shootout against Matlida Marks to clinch the last quarter final place. Despite missing their first penalty, Morasha B won their shootout 3-2. Morasha B unfortunately were to lose narrowly 1-0 in the quarter finals, but it was a brilliant effort from the side.
Morasha A won their quarter final match before losing to a late goal in the semi finals. Both Morasha teams did their coaches and school very proud, showing great sportsmanship throughout.
