CISSA Football Finals Weekend

26 November 2015

Last weekend, our CISSA teams competed across the city in their respective age groups and levels. The C1 Boys football team were outstanding in all their games playing six games and winning them all. Mr Tilly, their coach for the day was particularly impressed by the boys excellent attitude, skill and effectiveness going forward.

The C1 Girls had an excellent start to the day playing three games and winning all three but just dropped off in energy for the second half of the tournament. Mr Lewis, who coached the team for the day was very pleased with all the girls efforts across the day. One particular mention goes to young Sienna Dawson who scored a wonderful goal against Dulwich College Shanghai.

The Junior Girls, led by Mr Ramsden had a very wet and muddy day with lots of great times and team camaraderie.  They struggled in the wet conditions until the tournament was eventually called off but not before Mr Ramsden saw some excellent football from his team.  Mr Ramsden said that Floortje Ramaker was an excellent team player often changing positions with other members to ensure everyone got a go all over the pitch with Ella Josefsson possessing amazing attacking and defensive abilities.

The Junior boys worked hard all day in the rain with five games in their tournament. Despite some disappointing results, the boys held their heads high and triumphed in one fixture against NAIS with a solid 3-1 victory. Lucas ’goalkeeping heroics kept the scores in every game to a somewhat respectable level. David Lancaster pitted his wits against some commanding strikers, and in a rather apt David Vs Goliath match up, defended resolutely throughout. The other stand out performer was Lucas O’ Riordan, who ran the length of the pitch on a number of occasions carving out chances for his team mates.

As the football season draws to a close, the players will still be training over the next two weeks for a chance to be selected for the final of the U13 and U14 British Schools League games which will be held on Saturday 5 December.
