Pulsating afternoon of football for DCIS Under 9 B Teams

04 October 2018

On Tuesday, Mr. Johnson’s and Mr. Handley’s under 9 football teams travelled to Nexus International School for matchday 2.

Mr. Handley’s Team

The first match was the second DCIS derby between the Dover Court sides in as many weeks. Mr Johnson’s side were out for revenge, having suffered a tough defeat two weeks prior and they were duly rewarded for their efforts, securing a convincing 2-0 win. This was the first defeat of the season for Mr. Handley’s side. Could they bounce back…?

The second match of the afternoon was against a strong DCSG side. After chances went to both teams, it looked like the game would finish in a 0 – 0 draw. However, with less than 3 minutes remaining, it was young Zach who came up with the goods - a ferocious half volley strike leaving the keeper stranded. 1-0 to the Lions.

And the drama continued in the third game of the afternoon against matchday hosts, Nexus. Countless chances fell to both sides with Ramiz and Harry providing robust defending throughout. The game reached a climax in its dying embers; a wonderful lifted through ball from the ever creative Diego put Felipe (who was playing in a new role as striker) through on goal… only to be bought down by a Nexus defender! The resulting injury time penalty was coolly fired home by top goal scorer Adam, 1-0 Lions!

However it was the final game of the afternoon that proved to be the pick of the fixtures. Mr. Handley’s side would play the German European School Singapore (GESS) and this match had it all; industrious performances from Sid and Diego in particular who worked tirelessly for the team. At 2-1 to the Lions, the GESS strikers forced a truly outstanding save from Jung Woo, drawing a round of applause from Parents and teachers from both sides. However football can be a cruel game and, only moments later, a last gasp goal kick from the GESS keeper bounced high over Jung Woo who was unable to keep it out of the goal. The match finished 2 – 2 which was a fair result for both teams.

Overall it was a pulsating afternoon of Under 9 football. Well done to all of the boys on a fantastic effort and some great results.
