St Joseph's Primary School has never competed at the East Coast School Futsal Titles.
They took no time in providing some surprises through their under-12 boys side on November 20 when they banged in 11 goals in their opening two games.
A 4-2 win over St Columba Anglican School followed a first-up 7-0 hammering of Tacking Point Public School with impressive youngster Hudson Bell leading the way.
"It's the first time I've played with the school, but I've played futsal out of school before," he said.
Bell found the back of the net twice in the 4-2 win over SCAS, but he admitted it was hard competition.
School sports coordinator Leah Toole said the opportunity to field sides in the competition came about due to the lack of sport available to students this year.
Since the competition's inception in 2014, St Joseph's haven't nominated a side.
"It was really important to us to provide some opportunities to get the kids out playing and having some fun," she said.
"When we put an expression of interest out for the kids, they were really excited."
The positive response from the students has ensured the school will again field sides next year depending on when the competition is held.
"We saw it as an opportunity and the response has been so good we didn't want to pass it up," Ms Toole said.
"Half of our girls have really wanted to get involved in futsal so we'll definitely come back next year if the timing suits."
