The British School of Houston’s Bulldogs regularly compete in the TAPPS Fall Soccer Championship, previously winning the District Championship and reaching the quarter finals of the State Championship.

This year’s competition was once again fiercely fought, drawing 26 teams from across five districts state-wide. However, it was clear from the early minutes of their first game that this year’s Bulldog’s squad had great potential.

The team were named District Champions with one game still to be played, and continued their dominance with a 6-0 defeat of Edinburg Christian Academy. A confident performance in the semi-final saw the team come from behind to triumph 2-1 over Longview Academy.

Over 300 students, staff and parents cheered the team on in the final against Sherman Texoma Academy. The Bulldogs dominated throughout the game with controlled possession and superior fitness and strength, but were unable to break down the defence. After five penalties for each side, the score was still even at 4-4. Hearts pounding, the match went to a sudden-death penalty shootout, but a great save by Bulldog goalkeeper Jonny ‘Max’ McBain won the match and the title of TAPPS Fall Soccer All State Champions 2013.

Stephen Foxwell, Principal of the British School of Houston, commented, “Competing against much larger schools from all across Texas, this is an outstanding achievement and every member of the team, as well as the coaches, Paul Wright and Gavin Boak, and Chris Scott, director of sport, deserve enormous credit.”
