This past weekend the Northbridge International School Cambodia Junior Football teams went to Hanoi to compete in the VinSchool Times City ASAC tournament. The boys and girls teams competed against Concordia, VinSchool, Wells and ISHCMC.
The Junior Girls Football Team had a strong start to the tournament playing controlled and confident football.
As the Nagas consisted of only Grade 6 and 7 players, the girls were generally playing against more experienced teams. However, the girls did not back down and were able to tie their first two games against Concordia and Wells, both 1-1.
The girls won their pool play game against Vin School not conceding any goals but then were defeated by ISHCMC in their final pool play game.
The girls were ranked 2nd overall and played another very strong game in their semi-final versus Vinschool to secure their spot in the finals.
Although the girls played well in the finals they were unable to defeat ISHCMC and placed 2nd at ASAC.
The girls showed amazing determination this season and consistently worked hard to improve. The All -Tournament Team players for the Junior Girls were Evan Ho and Angelina Ly.
The Junior Boys Football Team went to Hanoi with high hopes after their dominant win at ISSAPP this year.
The boys come out strong in day one winning their first game against Wells by a large margin; this pattern continued with wins against Vin School and Concordia.
On the last round of pool play the Nagas faced ISHCMC who were also undefeated in the tournament. The boys lost this game ranking 2nd overall.
In their crossover game the boys played Vin School again, and although there were many great moments in the game the boys lost 2-1. The boys then played Concordia in the bronze medal game.
The boys once again showed their dominant style of play and connected well as a team to win 5-2. The all tournament pick for the Junior Boys Football team was Chetra Sreng.
Congratulations of all of our athletes on another strong season and making our community proud.
