Yesterday afternoon we had our highly anticipated re-match against BBELS.
When we played last time it was a disappointing loss for Lexis. After a close game, BBELS scored the winning goal in the final 5 minute tiebreaker.
Enrique was our designated captain for yesterdays game. He took it upon himself to get us motivated by practicing a New Zealand haka. The haka is a type of ancient Māori war dance traditionally used on the battlefield, as well as when groups came together in peace. You will often see New Zealand sports team perform a haka before a game.
Great enthusiasm from the students! I had stitches from laughing so hard!
The students had some warm up exercises before the match started and lucky for us we also had the loudest support crew!
With all of our shouting we managed to attract a new friend.. The adorable Cookie!!
He was definitely ‘Team Lexis’!!
The match went on as the sun began to set.
After 15 minute quarters we were all exhausted. Thank you Captain Enrique for keeping us enthusiastic! Unfortunately it was another close game, with BBELS taking the win with a final goal in the closing minutes. The final score was 4-3. Hard luck Lexis.
It was still a great afternoon. Thank you to everyone who played and came down to support!
Keep an eye on next months activities calendar to see when our next match will be.
