A string of impressive performances by the Solomon Islands national U-12 futsal boys led them to claim the 2018 FFA National Futsal Championship title in Canberra, Australia.

The local boys defeated the New South Wales Thunder 6-5 in their category’s grand final this morning.

They defeated the mighty Queensland Metro 6-1 in their semi-final last night at the AIS Arena after winning all of their pool games this week.

This is the third time for Solomon Islands’ U-12 side to win the title.

The country’s U-14 futsal team is in the second spot after losing 4-1 to the New South Wales Thunder in the semi-final yesterday.

Parents and supporters expect the teams to be back in the country next week.
