IBSB took away two teams to the inaugural International Schools Girls’ Football Tournament, on Saturday, January 17. Although our teams were newly formed and relatively inexperienced, their abounding enthusiasm served the girls well as they played against some well-trained and organized opponents.
Interestingly, the most memorable game came when IBSB A team played against IBSB B team. Our A team thought they had sealed victory before the B team scored an equalizing goal in the dying seconds to for a well-earned 1-1 draw. And in the final game of the day, IBSB’s B team played incredibly well to earn a 0-0 draw with ISB.
Ms Becky and Mr Ennion both said they left the tournament feeling very proud of the girls’ achievement, noting we have two superb goalkeepers in Melissa and Meea, two reliable defenders in Lara and Kathleen, and also some skillful midfielders in Alina, Elian, and Kiki. They would also like to remind all the girls that the Girls Football Club will start again in the summer term.
Thank all the parents who came along to support, and especially Deva (Pre-School) who was the biggest IBSB supporter on the day.
