Small school, huge title

KARANGI public school's soccer kids have done it again.

The New South Wales small schools football knockout began in 2004 and Karangi have just won their third title, with captain Chris Gentle leading the 16 boys and girls in the team to Moorebank on their latest winning adventure.

“We had to beat Willawarrin and Repton to get to the finals,” Chris said.

“Then we went to Sydney, staying overnight at the Sunnybrook Hotel before our games. We beat Central Mangrove in the first match 4-1 and then Vacy 4-0 to win the title.”

He gets a bit shy when teammates point him out but the side generally agree Zack Smith is their best player after scoring two goals on the city trip.

But the chances of wearing the crown in 2009 are not so certain with 8 or 9 of the side heading off to high school next year.

“It depends on how good the players coming up a grade are,” captain Chris added.
