ISACK U13 Girls Netball:
TES 19 – 13 BSK
Game 2 of the U13 Netball season, saw our girls at home once again- this time to BSK. As the score-line shows, it was a hard fought contest from start to finish. BSK took a 2-0 lead after just 2minutes of play, meaning we were on the back foot. But as always, the determination of our girls came through, and we lead 4-2 after the first quarter. Going into the second quarter, we knew we had work to do and that the opposition were just as fired up for a win as we were. Nonetheless, the girls started strong and scored 3 consecutive goals to take it to a 7-2 lead. For the remainder of the match, both teams were throwing everything they had into the game and it was clear that whoever won today would be the deserved winners.
Our girls remained focused and began playing some outstanding netball as they moved into the third and then final quarter of the game. Our pressure began to build and, in the end, proved too much for BSK with the girls clinching today’s win after a very feisty performance against tough opposition. Well done to all of our girls though who played extremely well and earned today’s victory in a closely fought contest. They played some superb netball at times, showcasing their hard work in training paying off. Onwards and upwards now- 2 out of 2 so far for our netball girls. Next week, we face ESF at home.
ISACK U13 Boys Football:
TES 2 – 0 ESF
In the second game of the season, our boys came up against a tough opposition in the form of ESF. The start of the game was very nip and tuck from both teams with each side giving away possession easily and neither side generating many attacks. TES had a number of efforts that went close with Owain and Max troubling the opposition keeper from distance. Danny scored his third goal in two games when he collected the ball from the edge of the box and fired a shot into the bottom left corner of the goal. During the second half TES were presenting a greater challenge and won more individual one on ones against the opposition. The team defended very well throughout the entire game and limited ESF to shooting from long distance which did not trouble the goal. TES put some very slick passing moves together in the second half and created a number of goal scoring chances and were unfortunate not to score a couple of goals. Late in the game TES doubled their lead with a good strike by Cassius from the edge of the box that flew past the opposition goalkeeper. Another win for TES, this week built on a solid defensive performance by Cassius, Matthew, Jack and Omar, as well as the rest of the team. Next week will be a top of the table clash against KES.
KFSAC 5/6 Boys Football
A Team: TES 0 - 1 NES
The TES A team were very unlucky to lose their opening game of the KFSAC Football season. TES started the game well and had a number of attacks through Maxwell, Sam and Ciaran. TES dominated possession throughout the game and came close to scoring in the first half when a strike from the edge of the box hit the post. The opposition,NES,were very resilient and did well to stop the TES A team from scoring. The second half went pretty much the same as the first, with TES attacking but unable to score the vital first goal. NES had a very lucky break towards the end of the game with a long distance shot that was not likely to trouble Ben in goal, but unfortunately deflected off of one of our defenders and into the net. The TES team fought really hard to get an equalizer at the end of the game and had a number of chances- they struck the post 3 more times but luck wasn't with the team today. Next week, we take on KES, another tough game no ,doubt, but I am sure our boys will rise to the occasion.
B Team: TES 0 - 0 NES
The B team started the season with a draw against NES B, ending 0-0 in a very close game. The B team started slowly and withstood a lot of pressure from NES but managed to defend well and prevent the opposition from scoring. TES created a number of chances in the game but were also unable to score today, much like the A team. TES B had a good game all around with the players working hard and challenging the NES team all over the pitch. They displayed a positive performance, and move onto next week’s fixture against KES in high spirits. A solid start to the season for the B team with the opportunity to grow and develop over the coming games-keep up the hard work boys!
