For a while now, I have been playing futsal, otherwise known as indoor soccer. I play with a bunch of the guys from Cenqua, some former workmates and friends. We play mostly for fun and fitness.We also mix this with to get better fitness results. This season (winter season), we did pretty well and ended up in the final, which we played last night.
We went into the match without great expectations as we were without our only star player, Daniel. Since I seemed to be coming down with the flu, I decided to play goalie. Even without Dan, we played really well so that the scores were locked at 1-1 even after extra time. That meant we had to have a penalty shootout. Maybe goalie wasn’t such a good choice after all.
The shootout consisted of 5 penalties for each side. After the first two shots by each side we were down 2-0. It looked pretty grim. I was able, however, to save the next 3 shots so that we came out on top 3-2.
Futsal is a great game – you should give it a go.
