The return of Year 5 and 6 Futsal Competitions run by Hunts School Sports Partnership saw Westfield do the double.
The mixed boys and girls competition brought eight schools to One Leisure St Ives Indoor Centre with the hope of becoming district champions.
The pool stages saw fast-paced play and lots of close games to determine the placing games.
Westfield Junior School from St Ives narrowly pipped Brampton Village Primary School in the final, with Bury CofE Primary School and Bushmead Primary School playing out a draw to share third place.
The girls' competition had six teams competing in a round robin format, giving the girls the opportunity to get lots of game time.
Some teams played back to back games which saw them grow with confidence and they had lots of fun too.
The afternoon went right to the last game played which made it so exciting to watch.
