Senior Girls Football Team: SIS 2 v 1 ICS

SIS 2 v 1 ICS

ISSFHK Division 1

Goals: Vanessa, Andrea

MVP: Sophie 

A stunning victory against last year’s champions. It took 2x wonder goals to seal the victory. After 5 minutes Vanessa volleyed home a deep cross from Kate and that’s how it stayed until half time. The second half started brightly for SIS and they extended their lead after a nice interchange of passes between Vanessa and Hana ended with Andrea blasting a 25 yard strike into the top corner, a pile driver of a shot. After 50 mins SIS nearly extended their lead with Lily B curling a left footed shot onto the post from 20 yards. With 10 minutes to go ICS pulled a goal back which made for a tense finale BUT SIS held on for a well-deserved victory.
