Soccer match against BBELS! 7 November

On Wednesday we headed to the sports fields for a friendly soccer match against BBELS!

It had been a very hot day, but luckily by time we started playing at 4pm it had cooled down enough for a run around!

We had a large number of players ready to lead Lexis to victory, so many that they had to take turns playing and supporting!

They were also joined by a team of Lexis supporters there to cheer them on!

One of our students, Manuelle, is a very talented photographer and came along to take some snaps and give me some tips on taking my own! These ones here are the ones I took, and I’ll be uploading Manuelle’s once he’s had a chance to sort through them all! Keep an eye out for this blog, there’s sure to be a lot of great photos on there!!

GO TEAM LEXIS!!

Man of the Match goes to Jeff who scored 3 of the goals, but he couldn’t have done it without the help of his team!

Scoring the other 2 goals that led us to victory were Fabio and Keigo!

Another great game guys, well done!!

Soccer match against BBELS! 23 May

Yesterday we played Soccer against another of Byron’s local schools!

We lost some of our sign ups due to rain, but still had eleven determined players who weren’t going to be put off by a little bit of bad weather!

After the first 20 minutes the blue skies were back and we were even treated to a beautiful rainbow!

Our team was made up of 8 boys and 3 girls and they all played amazingly together, with great spirit and teamwork.

The students continued to play even as it got dark and the rain came back! Real competitors!!

Well done to Fabio, Joao, Jeff, Cristiano, Sevie, Alex, Benoit, Gabriela, Patrick, Laurene and Helena for securing Lexis a 4 – 1 win!!!

GO TEAM LEXIS!!

Soccer! 28 April

Last Wednesday we joined one of Byron Bay’s other local schools for a Soccer Match!

Rather than competing against them we decided to keep it friendly and mix our teams,

this didn’t stop the students being competitive and playing their best though!

Nobody wanted to stop playing when the time was up so I left them to carry on playing into the evening!

After defeating them back in September, the pressure was on to keep the trophy firmly in Lexis’ hands.

Those who stepped up to keep our championship title were: Christian, Mauricio, Felipe, Angelo, Shogo, Gareth, Timo, Oliver, Helder, Tito and Juan!

With Helder doing an excellent job as team captain!

The boys all played amazingly and worked together brilliantly as a team,

so it was no surprise that WE WON!!!!

The final score was 4 – 3, with Helder, Juan, Felipe and Timo all scoring goals!

They couldn’t have done it without the skilled footwork of their team though and the support of their adoring fans on the sidelines!

Even a little bit of rain couldn’t dampen their spirits and the boys pushed on as the fans took cover, staying for celebrations after the final whistle!

We were even treated to a beautiful rainbow over the pitch as the game entered it’s final minutes 🙂

Both teams headed to the Bowls Club for drinks post match, where the competition with the two schools continued at the pool table!

Everyone was in great spirits and it was the perfect way to end the week and start the weekend!

Well done boys, you were all incredible and everyone at Lexis is so proud of you for keeping hold of our title!

Also special thanks to Let’s Go Surfing for providing the T-shirts for our team kit!

Soccer!! 2 February

Today’s activity was a very hot and sweaty game of soccer!

Well done Marta for representing the girls, you were amazing!!

It was a very tight win, with it coming down  to the last goal as a decider……..

…..but it was Lear, Raphael V, Philippe, Raphael M, Maxime and Adrian who took the victory and the beer trophy!

Soccer Challenge! September 30

A few months ago we were challenged to a match of soccer by another school in Byron Bay.  After a great, close match, we unfortunately lost by just a couple of goals.

Today, we challenged them to another match to try to win back the trophy…

…and WE WON!!! The scores were tied 2-2 at full time, so we went to a penalty shootout. It was goal for goal and Lexis made all their penalty shots, bringing it to 5-4 in penalties before the last SAE player took their shot…which was saved by our keeper Shin!

Congratulations to Team Lexis! It was an awesome game and you all played so well despite the heat! Well done on bringing the trophy back to Lexis! 🙂
