On Thursday, 1st March, and Friday, 2nd March, over 60 of our U14, U16 and U18 boys and girls football teams took to the field for the annual BISA Football Tournament.
The tournament this year was hosted by SEK-Catalunya International School, with teams from American School of Barcelona, Benjamin Franklin International School, SEK-Catalunya International School and The British School of Barcelona.
The matches were played as follows: U14 was 5-a-side; U16 was 7-a-side, and U 18 was 11-a-side.
Mr Cross, Director of Sport and PE at BSB, has shared his feedback with us:
“In the Thursday U16 competition, our girls and boys teams were simply fantastic and a pleasure to watch, with the boys clear winners and the girls just missing out on the top spot in the final. Notable outstanding performances from Tiago, Marcus, Miyu, Ariadna and Adriana.
The Friday competition for U14 and U18 players was again a pleasure to watch with all players contributing to a successful day of competitive sport.
Our U18 girls team saw some experienced footballers play alongside some very new ones. However, even against more organised and structured teams, the girls demonstrated their sporting quality, and like the day before, they finished the day as runners up, only by a small goal margin.
The U14 boys were unyielding in their pursuit for glory, scoring over 35 goals and winning every game by a clear margin. Their dominance was matched by the U18 boys who only conceded one goal and won all of their games, with some amazing football on show. Players from the other schools were clearly in appreciation of our BSB players and their quality. Therefore it would be difficult to mention any single player from the U14 or U18 teams, as all showed why BSB Sport teams are clearly a force to be reckoned with!”
Congratulations to all the participants!
Our next Football competition is with our younger students from Y5/6 from BSB Sitges and BSB Castelldefels in the EF Cup on Sunday, 18th March.
We are all looking forward to this new opportunity for our young sportsmen and women!
