Wednesday 7th of March saw the first outing for the elementary school girls’ soccer team this year, and another tournament for the boy’s. Hosted by our friends at CLS, it was a three school tournament with the British School joining us. This tournament was seen by all coaches as a warm-up/preparation tournament before the big PRC Association tournament at the end of the month. Let’s hear from the coaches:
Boys (Mr Bowden): The boys team have played together in a few fixtures this academic year, and this tournament was another ideal opportunity to test formations and get more playing time together before the big tournament on the 24th. The boys showed great enthusiasm throughout, and scored three great team goals in the first match against CLS, and showed determination against a very strong BSG team in the second game. Plenty of things to learn and practice before the tournament. Overall, a big well done to the boys!!
Squad List: Taylor Percy, Ahmed Bashir, Eric Huang, Henry Cross, Issac Hui, Feras Muthana, Delcio Fernandes, Asim Alanazi, Alan Zhang, Shawn Yang & Min Seok Baik
Girls (Mr Bartlett): After one training session on Tuesday, these girls were fantastic! They showed great commitment and team spirit, all working incredibly hard for each other. We played three games and we didn’t concede any goals, a huge well done to goalkeeper Kaitlyn Li and the defenders. We managed to win one game and draw two, I am very confident with a few more training sessions, these girls will be ready for the tournament in a few weeks time!
Squad List: Anna Chen, Tota Hassan, Kaitlyn Li, Ivy Zheng, Hannah Uren, Ethel Tang, Aisha Tsao, Julia Ding, Susie Yang & Lulu Khamis
