Under 11’s BIS Boys A vs ISHCMC Boys A
Final score: ISHCMC 0 BIS 4
A superb result for the team bouncing back from a defeat last week against AIS. The boys played much better football today and this was reflected in the result. We passed the ball very well and were resolute in defence with Norbert, Duc An and Hadrian Making superb tackles to win possession and then pass out from the back. Jay made a couple of crucial saves in goal. The goals were shared around the team with Khoi, Ethan, Robbie and Tai all netting one each. Ba Khang and Taisei also had a fabulous game by keeping possession well and looked threatening going forward. Man of the match this week going to Norbert for his fantastic effort and encouraging the rest of the players on the team. Well done.

The U11A team (made up of all Year 6 girls), travelled to ISHCMC on Wednesday. They continued from last week with an excellent first half and kept ISHCMC away from goal with some excellent defence and great saves from both Hoai Anh and Tia, however ISHCMC managed to squeeze one past us for it to go to 1-0. In the second half, Phuong Anh scored and excellent goal which put us 1-1. However ISHCMC can back with vengeance and scored to winning goal in the final minute. This made the final score 2-1 to ISHCMC. A great game all round, with some strong goalkeeping and defence from both sides. Well played girls!
The U11B team (made up of Year 5 girls) also went away to ISHCMC on Wednesday. It was their first game this season and they were ready for it! They worked hard to keep their formation and they certainly showed determination in the defensive end. They had a few chances but both teams had excellent goalkeepers, with Tu Anh making some fantastic saves. The game was so close it wasn't until the end of the second half, ISHCMC managed to score and end the game with a 1-0 win for ISHCMC. Great games all round!

Our U9 Boys strode out onto the field against the ISHCMC team, full of confidence and excitement as they prepared for their second game this term.
This game would prove to be a harder fought challenge as both teams attacked with skill and determination. Having gone a goal behind early, our boys rolled up their sleeves and applied constant pressure on the visitors defence and goalkeeper. This resulted in a handball in the area, allowing Jake to score the equaliser from the resulting penalty. In the second half, a fortuitous goal put us on the back foot again, but within a few minutes, a sweeping move and cross down the left flank was smashed into the roof of the net by Alex resulting in an eruption of cheers from the crowd. BIS were definitely the stronger team, and it only took the athleticism of the opposing goalkeeper to stop us from scoring more. Final score: 2-2
High excitement and big smiles were seen by all as the U9 Girls team got ready to play their match last Wednesday. Having played the AIS boys team a fortnight ago, our girls were ready and determined to face a disciplined ISHCMC team. Attacks ebbed and flowed from end to end, as our girls defended stoutly and created a host of opportunities in front of the ISHCMC goal. It could be easily said that the visitors goalkeeper was the busiest player in the game! Goals did come in the second half of the game, when from a corner, the ball came out to Hoai Mi, who deftly chipped the ball over the advancing ‘keeper, into the back of the net. The game continued in similar fashion, and with a few minutes to go to the end of the game, ISCHMC stabbed in an equaliser. Final score: 1-1
