Soccer season had began on the 12th of March. Practices took place on Monday, Wednesday for the girls and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for the boys. There were 18 players including middle school students who really wanted to play, so the coaches divided them into two teams, team with A and B.
But only 12 players out of the 18 players only could go. So, chosen 12 players of our school soccer team went to Zheng Cheng (one and half hour by bus from Guang Zhou) to have matches against 5 International schools DCSZ, CISB, ASU, ISU and UISZC. The soccer team had never won the game before so some people were worried about the game they really played well in Zheng Cheng which was cloudy, wet and close to 30’c.
On the last day of the tournament, our team had to win the last game against ISU to play for the Championship. Our team and ISU played game very intensely. We scored a goal first but as soon as we scored we lost a goal. A few minutes later, we scored again but ISU scored again. That cycle repeated itself over and over again and so we tied against ISU by 3-3.
Luckily, we got 4th place in the tournament so we could participate in the championship round. The team against us was CISB which beat our school by 2-5. We did improve a lot during the ACAMIS tournament, so our team was not afraid. We were so close to win. We even played an extra 10 minutes. But we finally lost a goal in the extra-time so we lost by 3-4.
Let’s cheer for our Boys Soccer Team!
