The second week back at school after the winter break brought about the school’s first fixtures of 2016. In ISACK the girls played their 4th game of the season and the boys volleyball team played two games to complete their league programme ahead of the semi finals. In KFSAC the girls Y5/6 netball team played their first friendly games of the year in the build up to the BSME Games.
U13 Girls Basketball
TES 16 - 14 NES
In a very exciting game, TES triumphed 16-14 against NES on Sunday. The result puts TES top of the league and guarantees the girls 1st place going into the semi finals with one game remaining. TES went into the game having won 3 out of 3 matches so far. However, having lost 4 players before the winter break and two very strong performers, TES knew it was going to be a tough ask to beat a good NES team. The game started well and TES went into the lead. The scores stayed very close throughout the first two quarters with TES staying narrowly ahead. In the third quarter TES moved ahead 12-8 and looked in control going into the final quarter of the game. The TES girls scored two quick baskets to move further ahead. However, NES pulled one back and then with a couple of minutes remaining, after good pressure, NES scored to make the scoreline 16-12. In a tense finish NES claimed one more basket to make the score 16-14 but the TES girls held on for a well earned victory. It was a terrific performance from the girls who should be extremely proud of their hard work, endeavour and attitude – well done Next week the girls play ESF before the semi finals a week after.
U13 Boys Volleyball
TES 1 - 2 NES
The U13 boys volleyball team travelled to NES for their fourth game of the ISACK season on Sunday. The first set started well with the boys playing some good volleyball and winning comfortably 25-10. However, in the 2ndset, after starting brightly, TES made a few errors which allowed NES back into the game. NES didn’t look back and took the second set 25-18. In the third set it was nip and tuck. Either side could have won the set but it was NES who eventually made the decisive points and won the set 15-13 and the game 2 sets to 1. It was a disappointing defeat for TES but the boys soon have a chance to make amends when they play ESF on Tuesday.
U13 Boys Volleyball
TES 2 - 1 ESF
The U13 boys volleyball team played against ESF on Tuesday and the boys were anxious to make up for their defeat on Sunday against NES. After both teams exchanged points TES started to take control and built a commanding lead with some good volleyball. The boys went on to win the first set 25-18. In the second set TES started well and led comfortably 16-12. However, a few good serves from ESF brought them back into the game. At 18-18 ESF took control and went on to win the set 25-21. It meant that within the space of 2 days TES had to play another deciding third set. After a couple of points were exchanged TES started to get on top of the game. Through some very good serving from Andreas the boys built a commanding lead and comfortably won the third set 15-6. The result means that TES finish the league season with 4 wins and 1 defeat from their 5 games and a home semi final is assured.
