Elementary Girls Futsal
On Tuesday, October 16th our BFS Sharks ES girl’s futsal teams traveled to Handong International School in Pohang to compete in the 2018 SKAC ES Futsal Finals Tournament. Our girls were outstanding on the day outscoring their opponents 13-1 overall in 4 matches. The lone goal given up by the Sharks resulted in a 1-1 tie with DIS. Both BFS and DIS finished first in their pool and advanced to the championship match. In the SKAC championship match the teams once again were so evenly matched that they battled it out to a 0-0 tie after regulation time. This meant that this year’s champion would be determined by penalty kicks. The penalty shootout was full of excitement, anxiety, and tension as both teams were tied with 3 penalty shots apiece leading up to the final try for DIS. Unfortunately for our Sharks, the final penalty shot for DIS was drilled directly into the upper left side of the net resulting in a 4-3 advantage and win for DIS. There was nothing our goalkeeper could do to stop the Jet’s penalty shots as all the shots made were well outside of the range of our goalkeeper.
The boys brought their A-game to the pitch on Tuesday. The played with heart and sportsmanship and every player contributed to their success. It was this winning formula the got them through the semi-finals after a 4-2 win over ISB (the only team that beat them this year). Though it was in the final game that the crowd got to witness what it is like to watch champions in action. They were not phased by the size, the speed or the early 1 goal lead ISK threw at them. The came together like a team and answer with four goals of their own. They left it all on the field and returned home with a season they will never forget, the admiration of the entire BFS family and a championship trophy that was well-earned.
