FOOTBALL: Frenchville Boomers' Jacob Wright was named the under-14 player of the carnival after his team's thrilling 3-2 grand final win in the inaugural Southside United Football Club's six-a-side carnival.

Frenchville stormed through its four round games, scoring 27 goals and conceding just one.

The impressive unbeaten run booked them a place in the grand final against Bluebirds.

The decider proved a thrilling contest, with the two teams locked at 2-all at the end of regulation time after Frenchville's Wright and Simbareshe Mugebe found the back of the net.

It was teammate Reece Humphries who broke the deadlock with a goal in extra time to give Frenchville the title.

Manager Adrian Moessinger said it was a great performance from the team, the nucleus of which played in the FootballCQ comp and finished as runners-up this season.

"This same group has been playing together since under-11 and they've had the same coach in Mark Muldoon. He's an excellent coach; he lives and breathes the game,” Moessinger said.

"I've been involved for three years as manager and the team has really grown together.

"We are very proud of their performance in this carnival, and the grand final was really exciting.

"We would also like to congratulate carnival organiser Helen Tracey. She did an excellent job and it all went really well.”

Bluebirds took the honours in the under-16 division.
