After the half term break the TES squads returned to competitive action with a number of ISACK and KFSAC games this week. In ISACK due to heavy rain the girls netball semi final was postponed until next week but the boys played their semi final in wet conditions, unfortunately losing out 2-1 in extra time. The Y5/6 football squad had two fixtures this week. The A squad gained two victories to put them well on course to winning the league. The B squad unfortunately lost out in their games and the C team enjoyed playing their first game for TES.
U13 Girls Netball Semi Final

Due to heavy rain throughout the day the fixture was postponed until next week.
U13 Boys Football Semi Final
TES 1 - 2 BSK (AET)
On Tuesday TES took on BSK in the semi final of the ISACK U13 football competition. In a thrilling game BSK ran out winners 2-1 after extra time. However, TES should be extremely proud of the way they played and did not deserve to be on the losing team. The first half was an exciting affair and neither side could break down strong defences. The score at half time remained goalless. In the 2nd half TES started to play the better football and took the lead through a 20 yard strike from Basil. It looked as though TES were going to hold on for victory but with 5 minutes to go BSK scored as the ball skidded along the wet surface and squirmed across the goal-line and into the net after Andreas had done well to get a hand to the ball. TES had an opportunity to make the score 2-1 but the BSK keeper made a good save. At 1-1 the full time whistle was blown and the teams went into extra time. TES were again the better side in extra time and pushed for the winning goal. However, as the second period drew to a close and the dreaded penalty shootout loomed, a BSK player shot and the ball looped up from a deflection over Andreas in goal leaving him stranded, and into the net. With only minutes remaining TES could not force an equaliser and unfortunately lost out 2-1 as BSK progressed to the final. The boys were very disappointed but should be extremely proud of their efforts and can take great credit from the energy and passion they put into the game. Well done boys, a super season.
