St Christopher’s School Intermediate Boys Football squad had an undefeated season this year in the Bahrain Private Schools Sports League. In the final tournament, St Christopher’s grew stronger throughout the knock out stages after beating the French school 3-1. In the final game, we faced our old rivals the BSB, beating them 3-0. The atmosphere was tense at the beginning of the game as each team’s defensive strategy was outstanding. We were without a goal for 15 minutes with both teams unable to capitalise on two strong teams. Eventually, Omar Jassim managed to sneak a goal, which lifted the team’s confidence. After the goal, our attacking formation was evident as the boys started to create space and believed in their own ability to win the game. The pressure grew as more and more attempts at goal were being made, testing the Keeper on many occasions. In the final 10 minutes Adam Shamma (Captain) scored a great goal from outside of the box, and a 3rd goal came from Aiden Shretta beating two defenders in the dying minutes of the game. Over all, it was a great show by both teams, the sportsmanship was high and challenges were fair. Well done to all on a great season.
