D1 Boys v Dulwich Coach: Steve Scott
After two heavy defeats back to back, the BISS Tigers D1 boys team pulled off an amazing victory in Dulwich's backyard to clinch 2nd place in the D1 East division. Playing 3-4-3, BISS started brightly, constantly keeping the opposition in their own half and limiting them to random long shots, which the inspired Nils Scholten dealt with easily. It wasn’t until the 2nd half that BISS got their deserved break through, when Tommaso Corte sent in a free kick just inside the Dulwich half. The goalkeeper looked favourite, but had one eye on the on incoming Lorenzo Ruisi, mistimed his punch. 1-0 BISS. This sparked a mini revival from Dulwich and the defining moment of the game. A Dulwich midfielder, wriggled free and unleased a powerful shot towards the top corner, Nils threw his huge frame across the goal tipping the ball over the bar, applauded by his captain, coaches and supporters from both teams. BISS seemed to regain focus and with a swift counter, Tommaso, feeding the ball across goal for Lorenzo to rifle in. 2-0. Dulwich rallied again and whilst the defense, consisting of Ben Smith Cullen McDonald, Fraser Pearson held firm, a brief lapse in concentration led to Dulwich to pull a goal back late on. Great performance from the whole, team. MOM: Nils Scholten

SISAC Girls Football v Dulwich (Division 1) Coach: Mr Northedge
On Tuesday April 8th the D1 Girls played an intense match against Dulwich. We knew from the start that Dulwich had won all of their previous matches and were in the top of the League. Also knowing that the game was a double-header and that we could walk away with an extra 6 points if victorious made us extremely determined to win. This determination and fighting spirit was consistently shown throughout the whole game, especially in the second half were the girls played some brilliant football. However, sadly this was not enough and Dulwich walked away with yet another victory on their hands with the final score being 1-0. It was an extremely tough game as they were the toughest competitors we have met all season, and the game was by no means over until the very end. Congratulations to Jule Scholten for being announced player of the match! We now look forward to our final game of the season this Thursday against SCIS at home.

C1 Boys Basketball vs SMIC Coach: Mr Meehan
In our first game of the season we had a very promising start! After a disappointing first half, where we missed several opportunities to score and lacked energy, we started the second half on fire. Great performances from Sam, Efe and Sebastian got us into several scoring chances. The big duo of Ben and Dimitri then took advantage of their size and dominated the opposition. Filippo, Gerald and Eric continue to develop and improve. Overall, it was a good start to the season with us winning 55 – 32. Team: Efe Bilgin, Sam McKellar, Seb Costantini, Filippo Carnelli, Ben Francis, Gerald Gun, Eric Chan, Dimitri De Klebnikoff

C2 Boys Basketball vs SMIC Coach: Mr Scrymgeour
The C2 team travelled to SMIC this week, excited about the thought of playing together for the first time. It was clear from the outset that the pre-season training had prepared them well. All the players quickly settled into our passing style of play, with Anakin Wan, Tommy Cohen- Tannugi and Charlie McKellar all distributing the ball well and contributing with scores of their own. The BISS side’s overall movement and defence were far superior to the
opposition with Brad Francis, Giacomo Gaido and Killian Cohen-Tannugi doing well. The score line remained comfortably in BISS’ favour due to powerful forward play and rebounding from Ben Murphy and Luca Ruisi who both stood out during the match. A great start to the season! Team: Anakin Wan, Tommy Cohen- Tannugi, Matt Dodd , Sage Brandini, Simon Jenson, Charlie McKellar, Ben Murphy, Leonardo Amadei, Luca Ruisi, Brad Francis, Killian Cohen-Tannugi

Junior Boys Basketball vs SAS 2 Coach: Mr Uddin
With eager anticipation we took to the court for our first Junior Basketball fixture. It was great to see a team including some absolute beginners as well as some more seasoned players. The boys started slowly and found the tempo of a real match a challenge in the first period against a more experienced SAS team. Some good defensive rebounding by Jake Lonsdale kept the game close. In the second half the boys found better rhythm, adapting well to the demands of full court play. Louis and Niccolo looked more assured in possession as the Tigers came back into the game. By the final whistle the team came off with heads held high knowing they had put in a good showing against strong opposition. It was a great first fixture and the boys have learnt a lot about game play from it. Team: Matteo Dressino, Louis Du Tilly, Kevin Pang, Jake Lonsdale, Niccola Goretti, Matt Kazantzis, Emile Bolon, Alejandro Suarez Serrano
