Tri-Cities Soccer @ WAB
Home
Tiger Field

The 2017 Tri-Cities tournament was hosted here over the last weekend as part of a much bigger event of arts and sports called WABX to the MAX. It was a great weekend of sport, where our team had their first true opportunity to face some APAC competition in a tournament situation. This was the first time we have come together as a team, with highlight performances coming from Joose Harju, Eerik Harju, CC Olsen, Sandy Olsen and Sweder Jacobs.

Game 1 vs. ISB:

We opened the match playing our local rival ISB. The tension was high as the boys wanted to make-up for the draw earlier in the season and begin to show how they can play. The game started with us falling into some disorganized play, leading to a goal from ISB. This raised the stakes for the boys, feeling the pressure of hosting a tournament, and we answered quickly with a goal from Sandy Olsen. Towards the end of the 2nd half Sweder Jacobs opened his scoring record for the season with a beautiful shot that put us into the lead. We would use the rest of the game to continue building and developing our passing game, making big leaps forward in holding possession and creating attacking opportunities. This game also saw a welcomed return from 2 injured players – Buni and Sam – who both had a positive impact on the game.

Game 2 vs. AISG

The second game on Friday came after a very long wait. We were fortunate to see AISG play earlier and our team talk before the game focused on ways to maximize our impact against their organization and style of play. The game was hard fought, but we began to see our passing game develop much better than in any previous games. The confidence of the team was on the rise and we maintained possession and dictated the play throughout much of the game. The AISG keeper was outstanding, stopping several excellent shots from both close and long ranger; however, he couldn’t stop a potential goal of the season from Sweder Jacobs. Coming from a corner only minutes after the start of the 2nd half Joose Harju took the cross off his chest, passing to Sweder, who turned and volleyed a world-class finish to the top corner off his right foot. It is a goal that needs to be seen to be believed, so please take a look at the footage linked here.

Game 3 vs. SAS Pudong

The final round-robin game had us facing Shanghai American School Pudong very early on Saturday morning. We fielded a smaller squad, with a couple players out due to school commitments and injury. Using our previous experience against DCB playing with a similar squad we had a line-up we were confident to be successful against a well-organized SASPD team. This was the first time we began to see our possession game really take shape, dominating possession for long periods of time and forcing SASPD to play out of their comfort zone. The increased pressure from possession resulted in an early goal from Cam Grigg, opening his account for the season, along with a 2nd half goal from CC Olsen as he continues to lead by example. The final 2-1 score line was not an indicator of the number of scoring opportunities we had and did not capitalize on.

Game 4 vs. AISG Tri-Cities Championship Final

After going undefeated through the tournament our confidence was growing and new players were beginning to see how to work within our system. After a very focused and intense tactical talk before the game some key challenges were identified. With these ideas in mind we took the field in our first final of the year. We started to press the game early, using our outside midfielders effectively to support our striker, with more attacking opportunities coming in the opening 15 minutes than we had generated throughout the entire season. The passing through the defense and movement of the mid-field wreaked havoc with the AISG defense who were pulled apart at the seams as we opened the scoring in the 22nd minute of the first half with goals from Joose Harju, CC Olsen and Buni Sozer in the span of 5 minutes. Throughout the rest of the game we continued to dominate possession, culminating in Amory Gamet getting his first goal of the year from high in the penalty area.

Var Boys Soccer vs DCB @ DCB
Away
DCB
Tie 1-1

Our first ISAC league match of the year had us facing DCB again only a couple of days after the exchange. We came into the game missing 2 key players as well as only having a single substitute throughout the match due to injury. The team came away with a positive result, drawing 1-1 against a DCB team also missing some key players. A lot of credit goes to the team for being flexible and focused throughout the game, with several players moving between 2-3 positions during the match. As the final match before our first major tournament of the year this was a good final opportunity to work on formations, tactics and continue to refine our style of play.

Var Boys Soccer Exchange @ ISB
Away
ISB

Early this year we had the opportunity to play in a local exchange of ISAC association teams including ISB, DCB and BSB. It was an informal tournament, seeing us play 3 games over Friday, 24th February and Saturday, 25th February. The games were hosted at both ISB and DCB, providing us hugely valuable opportunities to develop, refine and improve our style and systems of play.

Game 1 vs. ISB - DRAW 1:1

As with any games against ISB this was a closely and passionately fought match, with possession changing frequently between two teams eager to set their team up for the season. ISB scored first, with a beautiful strike outside of the penalty area mid-way through the 2nd half. Immediately from the restart CC Olsen took the ball and proceeded to make a run through the entire ISB team and scoring a beautiful strike to pull us even. The game would finish tied, but not for lack of chances from both teams.

Game 2 vs. BSB - LOSS 0:2

An early start on Saturday morning had us face a well-organized and focused BSB squad. They have developed a strong style of play and earned a deserved win against us after scoring 2 unanswered goals. This was a good opportunity to see our boys playing in a challenging situation, and begin to recognize how we can come together and build ourselves up as a team moving forward.

Game 3 vs. DCB - WIN 2-1

After a long break in the afternoon our boys came back to face the DCB Lions in our 3rd match of the exchange. We began showing some better possession play and more focused passing nd build up play early in this game. With some tactical changes to the line-up we began to see the attacking opportunities we had been missing develop much more frequently. The game was not a walk-over and required a focused effort from the entire team. Sandy Olsen jumped into the scoring lead with 2 goals in the match, which put us ahead at the final whistle. DCB mounted a comeback, scoring a single goal, but we managed to regroup and settle our play down to finish strongly.



JV Girls Soccer vs CISB @ CISB
Away
CISB
Win 8-0

A much needed confidence booster for the girls, on a very tight pitch. The creche continue to rack up the goals with Caroline bagging 4 and Elise with a second hat-trick and then Machiya also getting 1. Excellent goalkeeping from both Julie and Irene both stepping up and keeping clean sheets , both girls managed to look confident and made important saves to frustrate the Canadians.

The focus of the game was to get back and cover more, and even though the pace of the game was slower than BCIS, we did get back and defend more and were not in a flat formation, we supported each other running up and down the field which was great. Throw ins were shocking and we will do a team drill on this on Wednesday (not too much though as its too cold to stand around)...... Some of the girls looked much fitter on the field and more confident , Shahar, EK and Noel did a great job tackling and staying more in their position and Tina was versatile playing in almost every position on the field and Sunny had a great opening game on the wing showing some good pace up and down the field. Special thanks to Adi for quick spells up front and spectators Manon and Daphne (did I miss anyone, gosh i hope not !).

JV Girls Soccer vs BCIS @ BCIS
Away
BCIS
Loss 5-11

A lot of positives to take away from the first game of the season, team spirit is excellent, effort is excellent and these attributes will allow us to move forward as the season progresses. Many thanks to Harmony for filling in as emergency keeper, but now its up to the rest of the squad to rotate the position and ideally i want about 4 players with good hand-eye coordination (Basketball / volleyball players) to step up and share the role. The four goals were scored by the creche dynamo of Elise and Caroline, with Elise probably deserving of the WOM (Women of the Match) for the Hat-trick!

The biggest initial worry is the fact that the two wingers and 2 midfielders never got back to defend as a unit of 4, leaving the poor sweeper exposed often against 2 attacking players. This NEEDS TO IMPROVE for Mondays game against CISB and will be the focus of the main training session on Wednesday. Lots of challenges ahead, but thats why we love the game !

JV Boys Soccer vs BCIS @ BCIS
Away
BCIS
Loss 11-1
Today, the WAB JV team went to BCIS to attend a friendly football match against the BCIS football team. Our goal was to improve our football skills and abilities that we were lacking of, so that we could do better at the next game and at the ACAMIS.
