Statistics show that we Won 4, Lost 4 in the opening round of matches, but that doesn't tell the whole story. Marshfield year 5 boys played their hearts out against some very well-versed sides and kept their heads held high and managed to get a few wins on the bounce.
Goals were scored by Ismaeel, Abdul-Ahad, Hamzah and Muhammad Ali. There were some valiant defenses too from Ismail and Awais putting their bodies on the line in service of Marshfield's reputation.
The next round saw Marshfield playing far better tactics, and despite losing 4 and drawing 1 the boys learned an awful lot and gained invaluable experience in regard to competitive sport.
