This past weekend our U12 boys soccer team played in the Beijing World Cup Soccer Tournament in Chaoyang Sports Center, where 32 of the top Beijing Soccer clubs played off. The boys were 1 of 3 international teams to compete in the tournament, the other two being from Club Football and Beijing Kickers. The quality of competition is high, with almost all other teams training all year in their clubs or sports schools. While Club Football and The Beijing Kickers were eliminated from the tournament this weekend, the WAB Tigers elevated their skills and played strong solid football finishing first in their pool.
Keep up to date with the latest WABX news.
Goals were not as easy to come by this year, but some excellent individual performances led us throughout the season. Goal of the season goes to Sweder Jacobs for a beautiful right footed volley from a Joose Harju chest, followed by Sandy Olsen's goal in APAC against SAS Pudong, finding the net from a ridiculous distance. By far the most memorable goal of the season will be CC Olsen's opening goal against ISB, taking the pass off of a restart, dribbling through the entire opposing team and finishing with clinical precision.
The WAB Tiger's Varsity Boys Soccer team went to Super APAC at SAS Puxi. The tournament was hard fought with our boys winning their group and quarter final match, only to lose to HKIS in the semi-finals. The boys walked away with a 3rd place result in a very competitive tournament.
Watch live all weekend long as the Tigers defend their five consecutive APAC championships.
More than 500 swimmers came from 22 international schools to compete, and the WAB team placed sixth overall.
