The Varsity girls football team are close to concluding their program and were lucky enough to participate in the China Cup hosted by ISB last weekend. We opened with a convincing win against ISB 3-0 and followed this up with a 0-0 draw against HKIS in gale winds on the field behind the stadium. We finished the first day undefeated and had yet to conceded a goal.
On the second day of the tournament, we only needed a draw against SAS Puxi to get into the final and with just 5 mins to go in the match we conceded a goal from distance (again) to drop 1-0 and we ended up in the 3rd place play off game. It was tough to be motivated to play ISB (4th time this season) and they were desperate to avoid finishing last and in a scrappy game which we won 1-0 in an uninspiring performance.
That game aside, we had a successful tournament from the point of view of getting better at the things we need to do to achieve our goal of getting a medal at APAC.
