An EPS player (L) defends in the big finish to the small schools soccer competition.

Eureka Public School has finished third in the 2019 Small School’s statewide-soccer competition after travelling to Sydney during the school holidays to compete in the finals.

The semifinal involved a close and hard-fought game against Willow Tree public who came out the winners 3–2.

But in the playoff for third place Eureka triumphed over Kulnara Public 5–2, in a fast running game.

Willow Tree Public and Otford Public shared first place after finishing tied, after extra time.

The finals were played in Sydney at the Valentine Sports Centre, the home of NSW Soccer.

‘Seeing the team run out onto such a big and professional ground made you realise how enormous their achievement was to get to the final four teams in NSW,’ Andrew McPhee said.

Last year was the first time any of the students had played in the competition and one player has never been part of a soccer team before.
