The U14 Boys Football team competed in the King's Al Barsha Football 7-a-side tournament on Saturday 22nd Oct. Having only trained twice since the start of the season the boys were apprehensive about this tournament. Our first game against Division 1 team DESC was not the perfect start, with an scoreline of 7 - 0. This was a learning experience, but although the team took a heavy loss they bounced back with a fantastic result against Division 1 leaders Dubai College, only losing by 2 goals. Our third game was a must-win match, again against a Division 1 side JESS. The team battled throughout the game having a few chances on goal but defending very well as a team. Special mention must go to Leonardo Casale (Year 8), who kept the ball out of the net despite many attempts from JESS. A draw was a very fair result but unfortunately this meant we were knocked out of the tournament. A great start to the U14 Football season and hopefully this preparation will help them in the league, starting next week.
