The sun came out for day 2 of the annual TKU 9th grade tournament in more ways than one. Starting with the boys today, Algeria showed great heart and energy in their last two games to end up 5th in their pool, when, yesterday, going home after today seemed a real possibility. 5 of the 6 goals scored today were by Eric Couling, who is also showing his TKU pride with teal coloured hair. Morocco faced some tough opposition including front-runners Birkenhead, and ended up sixth in the other pool, making a TKU plate final a possibility tomorrow.
In the girls draw, Huddersfield continued to show great form, finishing in second place and progressing straight to the semis tomorrow. Special mention goes to Mia for a sterling defensive effort. Spurs finished fourth equal but unfortunately have missed out on the semis on goal difference.
