It was victory for the Year 5 girls who won both of their matches in the group stages scoring 1-0 against Harrow and 1-0 against Shunyi. This meant the girls went straight through to the final stage against Shunyi. The final match was a very close game with 1-1 at full time which led to extra time playing the ‘golden goal’ rule. In the first minute of extra time the girls were awarded a free kick which resulted in a final score of 2-1 to BSB Shunyi.
The boys first match was against NTA. It was a tough match and the boys were beaten 4-2 but still the team played on with high spirits determined to play their best. The third match was against Shunyi B team with the boys scoring 5 goals against Shunyi’s 2. Shunyi accepted their defeat gracefully, congratulating the boys on their game. The fourth match was against HISB in the group stage. It was a close match with the score being 2-2 up until the final minutes when HISB scored the winning goal. In the boys final match against Harrow, the boys took the lead with a 2-0 score at half time. The game finished 4-4 which lead to extra time. No goals were scored which then resulted in penalties; unfortunately Harrow took the match scoring 6-5 on penalties.
Overall all of the children who participated played their best and had a fantastic day.
