Last Friday, the A and B Grade Girls ESF Basketball Finals were held at South Island School with both of South Island’s team participating.
The B Grade Girls tipped off at 3:30pm against KGV and within a minute from the jump ball Naomi Teng scored the first shot of the game. It was a very tight game with just 1-2 points lead throughout the 40-minute game. We even went to extra time as it was a draw at 40 minutes. Both teams scored but South Island B Grade girls eventually took the win!
Congratulations to the B Grade Girls Basketball team, well played and great team effort!
The A Grade Girls played after B Grade. It was Lisa Catalan and Netra Hankin’s last game at South Island School, so this game meant a lot to both the girls and the team. Unfortunately, the A Grade Girls fell short and were unable to claim the win. Despite losing to Sha Tin College, the girls played well but it was not their day. Farewell to Lisa and Netra, we will miss you!
At the same time, the B grade boys played in the ESF Schools final at West Island against Island School. We had already beaten them in the group stage, albeit by a point, so we knew it was going to be a tight game. However, we were always in control of the match, and only some slack defending allowed Island to close the gap although we held out to be comfortable 41-32 winners. With 12 boys present at the game, this bodes well for the future when most of the boys make the step up to A Grade.
Last Friday, we also had the ISSFHK U20 Girls Football game against WIS at Sandy Bay. SIS won 8-0 against WIS. Goal scorers were Vanessa Kwok scoring 4 goals, Andrea Chan scoring 3 goals, and Lily Brewster scoring 1 goal. Woman of the match goes to Vanessa Kwok. Congratulations to the team and hopefully we will be able to see some more outstanding performances in the semi-finals! The team now progress to the next round where they will face Kellett School in the new year.

Last Saturday, it was our Girls Tennis team’s last HKSSF game for the season. It was a great day for tennis and definitely a great day for South Island. The girls played against St Clare’s Girls school at Victoria Park and won 5:0. It was Elisa Hirn’s last game forSouth Island School and what a great last game for her to finish with a clean sheet. She even bought cookies for the team as a leaving present. Farewell Elisa and good luck! Well done to the Girls Tennis team and let’s keep it up!
