Wonderful Week for TES
It has been an outstanding week of sport for TES. The girls U13 Basketball team, boys U13 Volleyball team and the Y3/4 KFSAC football team have all been in action and the teams have yet again produced some marvellous results for the school.
Incredible week for the ISACK girls U13 Basketball Team
On Monday the girls played their 5th and final group game against BSK. The game was an epic encounter between two strong sides. Going into the 3rd quarter TES had taken control of the game and led 13-7. However with good pressing tactics in the 4th quarter BSK pulled the game back and at 15-15 took the game into extra time. Both teams exchanged points in the five minutes of extra time. Into the last minute of the game BSK led 19-18. A basket from Hessa Alrowayeh put TES into the lead 20-19 and with seconds remaining there was no way back for BSK. It was a thrilling game and a game that will long be remembered by the girls involved and the spectators watching. The result meant that TES finished top of the group and would meet NES on Wednesday in the semi final.
The semi final took place on Wednesday at TES. NES were able to call on former TES pupil Abbi Brocklehurst services as she is still young enough to play U13 sport although she is in year 9. NES played some very good basketball and went ahead early and kept their lead throughout the game with Abbi Brocklehurst controlling the game. However at 18-13 in the 4th quarter the game began to change in TES favour. Nawal Arfan and Ella Peterson both scored a free throw to make the score 18-15. Then with 1 minute remaining Hessa Alrowayeh scored to make the score 18-17. NES then had the chance to extend their lead from the free throw line, however they missed both shots which gave the opportunity for TES. Farah Du Lieu duly accepted the opportunity and made a basket to put TES in the lead 19-18 for the first time in the game. There was still time for NES to miss two more free throws and for TES to miss two easy opportunities to seal the game before NES gained 2 more free throws with 3 seconds remaining to try and win the game. Again NES missed both free throws and TES hung on for an unbelievable victory to take their place in the final. Well done to all of the girls involved, who dug deep and kept fighting when it seemed the game was over. The final will take place on Monday 13th May v BSK.
ISACK boys U13 Volleyball Team reach the final with super performance
The boys ISACK U13 Volleyball team reached the final of the competition with a comfortable victory over KES in the semi final. The team won easily 25-15, 25-12 to set up a final with BSK next Tuesday at FSIS. It was a very confident performance from the boys who controlled the game from start to finish playing some very good three touch play at times. The boys served consistently with Musaddiq Lakhana and Andrew Al Saleh in particular serving very well. Credit must also be given to Sam Watts who served amazingly well with one arm in plaster after a nasty fall at the weekend. Well done to all of the boys. They fully deserve their place in the final and now face BSK in what should be a very exciting and high quality game.
Year 3/4 KFSAC Boys Football Team triumph for second consecutive year
This week the Y3/4 TES KFSAC football team competed in the annual football competition held at Bayan football pitches. The boys won the trophy last year and duly defended their title in style over the two day tournament. The result is TES 8th victory from 12 KFSAC events this year and puts the school firmly at the top of the KFSAC leader board for the overall trophy with 3 events remaining. Mr Turner, coach of the Y3/4 football team writes:
An excellent performance from the YR 3/4 football team to retain the trophy. The boys had been training over the past 8 weeks and the hard work certainly paid off as they went unbeaten throughout the tournament. After cruising through the group matches GES provided tough competition in the semi finals but a fine goalkeeping performance from Yeochan Moon proved the difference with excellent saves in the game and a vital save in the penalty shoot out. It is also a fine achievement to go through the tournament without conceding a goal!
The final against KES was the second time the boys played against them and the outcome was the same. A 2-0 victory was fully deserved and all of the players deserved credit for playing such a big part in the success of the team.
I am very proud of the team for their attitude and I couldn’t have asked for a better performance in what was my last competition as a coach at TES. Thank you and well done.
