On Friday 23 April Mercy College entered two girls’ teams that played in the Whitsunday Futsal Titles at the Mackay Multi Sports Centre. Both teams put in a strong performance throughout the competition and made it into the semi-finals. In the semi’s, Mercy Blue played the eventual competition winners MNBSHS (Mackay Northern Beach State High School). Both teams played an entertaining style of futsal, however, Mercy was unable to hold off MNBSHS in the end. Mercy Gold played against Mackay SHS in their semifinal. Our girls put in a spirited performance but were beaten by a determined MSHS as well. Mr Cureton and Mrs Bettini were proud of the outstanding effort displayed by our Mercy teams.
