BIS HCMC were the first team to arrive, giving plenty of time to warm up and practice. The first game was against SSIS. The girls were nervous but raring to go. This was a tough game as SSIS continued to challenge our midfielders and defenders, creating goal scoring opportunities, however Khanh Linh and Jenny worked tirelessly to prevent the ball from getting past them and that they did. At half time it was 0-0. After a gripping first half, it was time to play again. The ball kept being pinned back and forth, both teams close to scoring. Finally, Rachel intercepted the ball from SSIS, dribbled confidently around a few players and belted the ball in to the back of the goal! A 1-0 win for BIS.

The second game was against ISHCMC. This team was challenging as they had some very strong players. BIS were communicating, passing, moving in to space and working their positions incredibly well, creating chances but could not kick the ball in to the opponents’ goal as their defence was solid. ISHCMC had numerous shots at goal but thankfully Jasminh, our Goalkeeper, made some brave saves. Unfortunately, ISHCMC managed to score just before halftime but the game was not over yet. During the second half BIS were ready to come back stronger than ever. They kept one another motivated and persevered. Rachel made a fantastic tackle, sprinted off with the ball, dribbling with beautiful skill and took a powerful, accurate shot at goal - making the final score 1-1 at fulltime. A great game.

The third team BIS were playing was AMIS. This was another exciting game. The girls showed strength, speed and resilience throughout. The midfielders; Chaeyoung and Rachel were running well with the ball and executing some brilliant passes up to Sabrina and Michelle. The top goal scorer for this game was Rachel – well done to the whole team on the 2-1 win!

Following two wins and one draw, BIS progressed on to the final! Here, they met ISHCMC yet again…

The first 15 minutes of the final were tight, both teams were defending and attacking incredibly well resulting in a 0-0 score at half time. Early in the second half, BIS were given a free-kick due to an infringement occurring. Rachel was the chosen player to take it. From 20 metres out, Rachel blasted the ball, it hit the corner of the post and went in the goal – the crowd roared! Devastatingly, the referee disallowed the free-kick and the score remained 0-0. Soon after this, ISHCMC found a new source of energy and out of nowhere, took a shot and scored the Champions goal.

Despite BIS A Team feeling gutted that they lost the final, they held their heads high and kept smiling. I feel incredibly proud of all the players.
