The High School Girls Soccer team came 3rd/4th place out of 6 teams at the SKAC tournament in Pohang. They finished the season with 3 wins and 5 losses. The captains were Jihong Lee and Stella Ma. The goalies were Min Jeong and Alice Shin.
The highlight of the final tournament was the quarterfinal penalty shootout that went to 11 shots for each team. Nastya Kim made the winning goal. Alice Shin made many saves. Rumor has it, the entire population of Pohang was watching from the sidelines. On top of that, many spectators even traveled all the way from Sacheon just to watch. What a game! Go sharks!
An abbreviated high school boy’s futsal season has come to an end. With the unpredictable spring weather canceling our first tournament it was a do or die situation at yesterday’s finals. The Sharks missed out on the quarterfinals by one point. There were many bright spots – the scoring came from a variety of players including Zenith, Yuri, Sergei, Luke, and William – four of those seasoned players will be returning next year. As a unit, we tallied 12 goals over three games. Excellent goaltending by both Hans and Tony kept us in all our games. Unfortunately, we caught the injury bug and by the second half of our last game, both goalies were injured along with starting players Yuri and Sergei. The team should be proud of the fact that during tournament play and in the friendlies they tied both BIFS (twice) and HIS – the eventual championship foes.
Great job boys! We are proud of you!
