Yesterday afternoon we all gathered out the front of the school to walk down to the soccer field together. Our nominated captain Tommaso led the way.
We arrived early so had some time to relax in the shade before our opponents arrived..
Those who were very keen began to warm up..
There was a little bit of confusion about what field we would play on, but as soon as Max and the students from BBELS arrived they pointed us in the right direction.
We had a solid team from the beginning.. and more talented players continued to arrive throughout the game.
With the other team only having 8 players in the beginning we started off playing 8 a side for 12 minute quarters.
The first quarter set the tone for a very fast paced, competitive game!
The score at the end of the first half was 2 – 0 to BBELS. The scores evened out in the third quarter and Lexis scored a goal in the final minute to bring the sore to 3 all.
By this stage Team Lexis had a large crowd to cheer them on!
We played on for another 5 minutes to determine a winner.. no body scored! So with another 5 minutes on the clock it was a tense match, but BBELS managed to fluke a goal leaving the final score 5-4.
Special mention to Jvana, who played excpetionally well, representing the female students from Lexis. Go girl!!
It was a great game. Thank you to everyone who played! You were all amazing. Looking forward to the rematch Wednesday 22nd May at 3.30pm!
