U14A BOYS FOOTBALL VS ABC
Year 8 student William Burden provides the match highlights from the U14a boys football match against ABC International School.
After a long break our U14 Boys Football Squad successfully kept our high intensity level throughout the match. Our style of play has significantly improved every time we play. Our passing style of play enhances us and we keep the ball moving so we can move the opposition. This match, we showed movement of the ball and ourselves to create space, therefore giving us chances to score.
Overall we played very well in this match, but there is still room for improvement. I believe we can improve by executing all chances we had. I say this because during the match we had a lot of chances on goal but half of these chances were shots off target.
One key player in the match was Ron Liu who is currently our top scorer so far with 3 goals in 4 matches. He brilliantly executed 2 critical chances in front of goal to lift up our team. Another key player was James Vandersloot who has improved greatly from the last match. He always won the crucial tackles that needed to be made.
Final Score: 4-1
U14A BOYS FOOTBALL VS AIS
William also provides the match highlights from the U14a boys football match against the Australian International School.
Another successful win after the winter break for our team. The first 10 minutes we outpassed, outscored and were up by 2. However, the second 10 minutes of the first half we started to struggle and got overconfident. Therefore, we conceded 2 goals so the outcome of the first half was 2-2. But with an overview of the first half from Coach O’Brien, we all focused on winning and fixed our mistakes. We started to play our football again to lead us to a 4-2 win over AIS.
Once again, Ron Liu stood out above everyone with his amazing hat trick against AIS. He is now very far ahead of the whole team with an outstanding 6 goals in 5 matches. He positioned himself in the perfect positions to be set up for a goal. Beautifully executing every chance he got which lifted the team up significantly. Another key player was Bento Horn who also scored a goal along with 2 assists. Christian Gladchuk also shined with composed shots on goal and had set up many plays that created chances on goal.
Final Score: 4-2
U14B GIRLS FOOTBALL VS AMIS (13/12/2018)
Year 9 student Tracey Le provides the match highlights from the U14 Girls Football match against AMIS that took place before the Christmas break:
On 13th December 2018, the U14B Girls Football team had a friendly football match against AMIS right here at the BIS football pitch. As the team approached the football pitch, tensions rose as it was our final match before the Term 1 break.
The first half of the match started off with our team keeping away as many goals shot as possible. Within a few minutes, Angelina Boulin, Year 7, scored into the opponents net. From there, we kept our focus on a high level and tried to score more shots but they were blocked by AMIS defenders. At the end of the first half, the score was 1-0 to BIS.
After half time, we went out the pitch as concentrated as we were in the first half. We were very attentive, trying not to let AMIS score as time in the second half whizzed through. As the final minutes of this match arrived both BIS and AMIS tried to score, trying to fight for glory. Finally, the whistle blew and the final score was 1-0 making it the best match our team has ever played this season so far.
Overall, it was an amazing match and I personally think that the whole team not only played brilliantly but also improved on our football skills since our last match with EIS. The player of the match, decided by our coach (Mr. Porter) was Jessica Hwang (Year 8) because of her great defending skills and her magnificent effort that was put into this tense game.
Final Score: 1-0
