Saturday 30th April - Previously defeated by this driven French team, the BIS girls were determined and focused on what lay ahead.
The morning started with pulse-raising drills prior the match where we warmed up to become optimally prepared. The game had commenced and immediately our heads were switched on.
In the heat both teams played with high amounts of perseverance, communication and passion and as a result many fantastic passes were made and received. We had come closer with every pass to a better quality of football however unfortunately the first goal was made luckily by the French. Within 5 seconds the ball was rolling again and after 4 minutes of countless on-goal attempts, a match-tying goal was produced.
During half-time the BIS team had understood the opposition; their defence was dense leaving only one or two players in attack, it was recognized: in order for a defeat, playing in union and utilizing the strengths of one another whilst communicating and continuously passing would help achieve. A few minutes after half time a goal was made by the BIS girls team which in response the French scored a powerful goal. Both teams aggressively defended and attacked before a corner was played and the BIS girls had scored the final and game winning goal with only minutes left to play.
It was a fantastic win and ending to the whole season, the game reflected all of our best skills and will definitely be a reminder of what we stand for as individuals and as a team.
