Last year's festival was hosted on various participating schools’ AstroTurfs, culminating with the final, held at St Mary’s, in the late afternoon of Sunday 8 April. This final, between Collegiate and St Mary’s DSG, Kloof was an incredibly tight affair, with no goals scored during regular time or during the five minutes of extra time. St Mary’s Kloof goalkeeper, Nicola Havenga, proved the difference between the teams in the penalty shoot-out, when she saved all three attempts, helping her team to a thrilling 3-0 shoot-out victory. This is the first win for St Mary’s Kloof since 2007.
