Our 5 a-side girls football teams travelled to Bayan School in May to take part in their indoor tournament. As usual they were a credit to our school, not to mention the best dressed teams there, in our new kit! One of our teams finished with 3 draws and 1 win under their belt, with some great goals from Adi and a hat trick from Chloe! Our other team made it to the final after 2 draws and 2 wins. Nayfah, Imaan and Gracie all scored magnificent goals! Throughout the tournament there was some great goalkeeping from Beatrice and Charlotte, fantastic defending from Amna and Freya and great team play from Kate, Ophelia and Iona. Well done, girls!
Last week, two of our boys 5-a side teams travelled to take part in the annual Bayan indoor tournament. Both teams were drawn into separate pools for this tournament but from the off seemed to be on a collision course for an all St Chris final. Team 1 were decimating teams in their group, winning matches easily thanks to a free scoring Callum Dawson. Team 2 were also winning matches with considerable ease with goals coming from the hot-shot duo of Fritz Tautenhahn and Faris AlKhalo. As expected, both St Chris teams had to contest the final to see who would be the eventual tournament winners. This match was a tense affair with chances few and far between. However, the deadlock was broken when Tautenhahn drilled a free kick which screamed into the roof of Altman’s net. The next talking point was a Szecowka goal which was chalked off as the official deemed the ball to be handled in the area. This nerve jangling game ended 1-0 to St Chris 2. Overall, the tournament was a great success and was a fitting end to a superb year for all involved with Year 5 and 6 Football Squad. Well done, boys!
