Bean-Fox inspires Force Red
Footy Promotions/Footy Force Futsal hosted the Youth Futsal Mini League for 8-12-year-old boys and girls at the CedarBridge Academy Gymnasium.
The tournament involved 53 players being drafted to seven teams, with Force Red emerging at the champions with 31 points and 34 goals scored.Their team included Samar Augustus, Harlem Bean-Fox, Jamarion Dill, Kruz Iris, Amir Johnson, Rajee Knight and Xion Smith.
Bean-Fox was the top scorer with 16 goals.
The Most Valuable Player award was handed to Force Yellow's Masaki Kitade. His team placed second in the league.
Vinzie Zuill, president of Footy Promotions/Footy Force, said: “We were exceptionally happy with the participation.
“The league began with a draft selection process, in which players anxiously watched their names being called and assigned to teams. It was the first time that we have held a futsal draft for players. The teams then went on to compete in a four-week league that was played on Sundays. The games were very competitive and exciting with an average of 40 goals scored each week.
“The players adapted well to playing with others that they would not usually have a chance to play with.
“Well done to all the youth players that participated as they have set the tone for more leagues to come.
“The players did not hold back when showcasing their skills, they showed great sportsmanship and played with passion.
“Congratulations to Force Red, they were very consistent with their performances.
Zuill added: “It was evident to see that futsal is growing in Bermuda. It was also great to see families, representatives of football clubs and fans come out and support the youth players.”
Futsal continues on April 25, with the Footy Force Futsal programme, which includes an end of season tournament. All players aged from 5 to 15 are invited to participate.
