soccer4children Camp – January 2012 – Day 6

The final day had arrived. The boys were up early and eager to start the day. Breakfast was served and no time was wasted: they were out on the field warming up and practicing their chants.

Kings School arrived around 8am and too had some time to warm up before the first game. 9am was the juniors kick off, the game was won by the soccer4children boys, 10 – 0. At 10:30, the seniors played the second game which was also won by the soccer4children boys, 10 – 0. Congratulations Guys !

Mr. Maurice Radede from SASOL handed out the medals to the losing team players and they were congratulated on good sportsmanship and valiant effort, since they had not been given time to practice much as a team so early in the year. King School was also treated to lunch by soccer4children after that.
