Bisac U11 Soccer tournament
NIST Falcons joined Bisac under11 soccer for the first time. The NIST Falcons had six teams going to the tournament. They were A, B, C1, C2 and 2 girls teams. We had trained for 8 weeks. As the NIST field rose we got to use the artificial pitch and it became much easier to train.
Then just 3 weeks before tournament the A-team needed some experience so Ms. Jane and Mr. Sam organized some matches against year sevens and u13 girls. This helped us a lot with our movement and passing. It also helped us with Formation in A teamour fitness.
On the 5th of February all the NIST teams which include sixty kids and the coaches met up at NIST and went as a team to Bangkok Patana School (BPS). As we reached BPS we all gathered and got ready for our first match.
NIST VS BIST
It started well for the NIST falcons as the A-Team won their first match 4-0 against BIST with a hat trick from Sebi and a goal from Billy. Our defenders played a good game but could have improved on not letting any of the opponents get behind them. Johan went storming up and down the right and Aayush doing some beautiful passing. Rossi could have come back a bit more but when we were attacking he was storming up as well. Sebi was doing a great job upfront and getting a hat trick with him. Billy showed what he could do and scored a beautiful goal. Vikrant made some good saves and kept a clean sheet. After our first games everyone in the A-team were in a good mood. Then everyone had something to eat and drinks so they would have energy for the next match.
As our second games approached all the teams were training hard because we were facing hard competition. Some boys in the NIST A-Team new some players in the Harrow squad and new they’re playing style.
NIST VS HARROW
When the A-Team faced Harrow they won a comfortable win 4-1 with 2 goals from Johan, 1 from Sebi and 1 from Aayush. In this game the defenders shouldn’t have let some players behind because it conceded harrows goal. But Vikrant played a good game and made some very impressive saves. Up front we all played well in our passing game and the harrow defenders couldn’t keep up with it.
After the second game the A-Teams heads were up as they were going to face one of the best team in the tournament which was ISB. We needed to win this game because we didn’t want to face Patana in the semifinals.
NIST VS ISB
As the game against ISB began NIST couldn’t really get there rhythm and their passing game done. Then out of nowhere the ISB team scored and they were leading 1-0. NIST kept fighting until the half time where Mr. Sam our coach gave us an encouraging talk that got us pumped up and ready for the next half. In the second half we got our rhythm back but still didn’t play that well. Then Aayush did a perfect pass straight to Sebi who flicked it through the goalkeeper’s legs and scored. We then concentrated on our defense and we were lucky that ISB hit the post and didn’t go in. Luckily the final score was 1-1 and we won our group by goal difference.
We were all happy about our group stage performance but then in the Semi-Final we had to face the tough team Shrewsbury.
NIST VS SHREWSBURY (SEMIFINAL)
The semi finals started with both teams playing well. Our opponents played very well and at half time the score was 0-0. Then Johan got substituted to have a rest and on came Billy. It was a perfect substitution because 2 minutes after Billy had come on he scored a wonderful goal into the bottom left corner. Then Palmy from Shrewsbury scored and the game went to penalties. Where Mr. Sam chose Billy, Johan and Sebi to take the penalties. Vikrant then saved Shrewsbury’s last penalty and Johan then easily sank it into to the net and NIST were through to the final.
Everyone was incredibly happy and Billy, Sebi and Johan were even happier because they all scored a penalty.
Then we had to get ready for our toughest game of the tournament. We were facing BPS. In this game Mr. Sam told the team that Aayush was going to man mark Tenali and Calvin was told to man mark Ethan.
NIST VS BPS (FINAL)
As the rough game went on BPS had all the possession and scored a goal. NIST then woke up and attacked much more but couldn’t get a goal with them. Calvin then accidently did a hand ball in NISTS penalty area and Patana got a penalty. Though it was a good penalty vik still managed to save it and kept our hopes alive. Then in the second half we attacked again and Calvin had a really good chance of scoring but still couldn’t get it in the net. Then Aayush got subbed for Billy and Billy also played well. In the end we couldn’t get our goal and sadly we lost the big final against patana.
In the end we were happy because we reached our goal which was to reach the final. Then we had the medal ceremony were we got our medals and NIST A-Team got the runners up trophy.
We would like to give a special thanks to Ms. Jane and Mr. Sam for giving us the opportunity to be able to play in this special tournament and for coaching us.
From the A-team
Written By Johan and Aayush
Quite a lot of boys in the class have written about becoming a professional football player. Here’s a little video clip by Zlatan Ibrahimovic about what you need to succeed – it’s not easy!~
CHELSEA: Chelsea have 99.9% won the Premier League after a 7-0 thrashing of Stoke at the Britannia Stadium [Stoke’s field]. Even though Man Utd won 3-1, Chelsea are winning by 1 point and 7 goals difference.
LIVERPOOL: Liverpool thrashed Burnley 4-0 at the Turf Moor. Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard scored 2 goals whereas Maxi Rodriguez and Ryan Babel were added to the scoresheet. All 4 goals were scored in the second half. This is a good tuneup to the second leg Europa League semi-final match between Atletico Madrid which Liverpool trail 1-0.
Manchester lost 2-1 to Chelsea at Old Trafford earlier tonight. Joe Cole got the fine start for Chelsea as he scored a masterclass in 20 minutes. Drogba came on as a sub and made it 2-0 when Van Der Saar lost his footing. Pipo [Frederico] Macheda scored his third goal for Man United exactly 2 minutes 24 seconds after Drogba scored. 20 month absentee Owen Hargreaves came on as a sub at 90 minutes to play for only 3 minutes [test his physical fitness and get him warmed up] and tested Chelsea keeper Cech with 1 of his magical freekicks which hit the crossbar.
Andy Roddick put an end to Rafa Nadal’s run to the semis with a 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 victory.
Tomas Berdych continued his magical run to the final beating Robin Soderling 6-2, 6-2 and will meet Roddick in the final tomorrow. In his run, Berdych beat Federer in the 4th round.
Fernando Torres has said that if Rafa Benitez is sacked, the club’s problems will not resolve. Torres believes that its the players to blame, not the manager. Torres and Benitez both signed long term contracts earlier this April-keeping them at Anfield till 2014. Torres told BBC Sport that Liverpool can overcome the problems of losing 7 games this season whereas last season, Liverpool were still unbeaten. “It happens sometimes. Like every top team in the world, Liverpool will also overcome the situation” Torres told BBC Sport.
Mark Hughes has been sacked from Man City after they beat Sunderland 4-3 at Eastlands. Man City have appointed former Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini in charge until the end of the season. The players tried to defend Hughes but it failed.
What do you think should happen with Benitez and why?
