Junior School Lead Futsal Success

For the first time this year, we were able to enter teams in five different age groups for the Futsal Tournament organised by St. Joseph’s College. The Junior School boys won four of their five games, despite it being the first time they had ever played a competitive game, with Kamille Le Berre scoring multiple goals. Our Under 13 and 15 teams acquitted themselves equally well, both qualifying for the Plate competition after winning most of their games to finish second in their groups. The Under 17 team was unlucky to lose on penalties in the Plate competition while the Under 19 team failed to qualify for the second round on goal difference despite not losing a game so also went through to the Plate. In total, over 40 boys represented the school in the tournament so it was wonderful to see so many students having the opportunity to play. It was also a great experience for our boys to play against teams from across Sri Lanka, with teams having come from as far as Trincomalee. A week later, we also entered two Girls’ teams in a separate tournament organised by CIS, one Under 14 and one Under 19. Special congratulations to Umaama Hussain for playing in the Under 14 team despite only being in Junior 4. Further progress with Junior School sports can be expected in the future, with a new Girls’ Basketball Squad being set up next term and Inter-House Football and Basketball matches now being played in two divisions.
