On Saturday Regent’s hosted the U15 Girls TISAC Football Tournament.
We started our group games against a strong St Andrew’s team who underestimated our ability as we scored the first goal. They responded quickly with the equaliser, ending the first half 1-1. With quick thinking from Benz and Grace in midfield, we took the lead again in the second half but struggled to dampen their strong strikers and the game ended 2-3. Next, we faced Charter; we attacked early and were rewarded with the first goal although the game was a 1-1 draw.
We met an undefeated Bangkok Prep team in the semi finals. We conceded one goal in the first half but took to the pitch in the second half with a new energy and focus. Unfortunately were unable to convert this into a goal so we went into the 3rd/4th place play off against Ascot. We scored the first goal and dominated this game – conceding a goal late on, taking us to extra time. The girls gave it everything they had however a small defensive mistake was all Ascot needed to win a free kick and score from it. We proudly took 4th place and everyone enjoyed a lovely day of football.
Player of the tournament for Regent’s was Benz for her excellent determination and growing confidence.
Well done to all the girls!
