Footie finals for the Phoenix teams in Ecuador

With Muenala unable to reach the finals, the Larcacunga teams stormed through two matches a piece. First up against the Larc boys played Urcusiqui. Rumiñahui scored his first goal with a sly spin of the goal post. This then lead to a hat-trick with additional goals courtesy of Bryans head following a strong set up from the goalie Alvaro. Final score 7-1 to Larc!

The Larcacunga girls team however topped the day, playing a strong defense against Urcusiqui and winning their final match 2-0 thanks to Rosa’s marathon sprint and keen boot. Overall the girls won 3 matches, drew 1 and lost 1 - earning them 3rd place and a whopper of a trophy - Yuupiiiiii go for it girls!
