ISACK U13 Boys Swimming Gala

Sunday saw the first of many swim galas to be hosted here at TES. Kicking off the swim season, were our U13 boys, which comprised of students from Years 5-8. And what a performance it was! Our boys – comprising of Max, Owain, Orestes, Matthew, Christian, Maxwell and Sam – won the first round gala by 29 points! An amazing start for our Under 13 boys winning the first round of the ISACK swim season. The boys swam exceptionally well, against tough opposition. KES and NES also put out excellent swimmers, winning some of the races through the afternoon. But our boys excelled today particularly in the Medley relay where they won by half a length outstanding swimming! A great start to the swimming year for TES. Next week, it’s the U13 girls turn- good luck!

ISACK U13 Girls Netball

TES 30 – 1 ESF

The U13 girls have made a fantastic start to their season, winning 2 out of 2 games so far. On Tuesday, we were home once again against ESF. As the scoreline reflects, today’s win was a good one for our girls. They played some fantastic Netball and at times, were simply sensational to watch. A huge improvement in their passing and movement around the court, meant that the ball remained in the opposition’s half for most of the game and indeed, spent most of the time in our attacking third. Darcy and Angelina were on excellent shooting form today, rarely missing an opportunity to score for TES. Maisy did a sterling job alongside Josefin keeping their shooters out of the shooting circle and were supported extremely well by Mia, Sienna, Zeina, Emily and Mackenzie. A job very well done by all of our girls today- a win showcasing your training paying off. Now, we prepare for next week’s fixture, which promises to be an exciting one away to NES good luck girls, you can do it!

ISACK U13 Boys Football

TES 0 – 1 KES

In a top of the table clash in the ISACK football competition TES and KES played out a very close game. TES started the game slowly with KES on the front foot attacking our goal. But the defense of Cassius, Jack, Omar and Matthew limited the opposition to long distance shots which did not trouble Benjamin in goal. After a slow start, the TES boys then began to create a number of chances but were unable to score. At half time the score was 0-0 in a very competitive match in which both sides had chances to score. The second half was more open with both sides pressing for the first goal. The midfield of Owain, Max and Danny had to work hard with Orestis to get up and down the pitch in an end to end game. Unfortunately for the TES team, KES managed to get the decisive goal of the game late in the second half
from a corner where their striker hit a shot into the bottom corner just out the reach of Benjamin in goal. TES threatened late on to get an
equalizer but were not quite able to get a good shot on goal. A very competitive game against tough opposition in the form of KES. Next week, we take on BSK in our penultimate league match, before facing TEA the following week to determine who we will come up against in the semi-final.

KFSAC 5/6 Boys Football

A Team: TES 3 - 0 KES

TES under 11 teams performed very well on Wednesday evening and achieved two good wins against KES. The first match played was by the A team and they started at a high tempo that their opponents couldn't match. The TES attack put some very slick moves together and created a number chances early on in the game. The attack of Ciaran, Maxwell and Sam put the KES team under lots of pressure and opened the scoring with a goal by Maxwell.
By half time the score was 3-0 with further goals by Ciaran and Maxwell again. Our defenders were moving forward and creating scoring chances with Christian, Omar and William also having shots on goal. Our goalkeeper Jad had very little to do, but what he did do he did very well. Ali and Felix also came off the bench and contributed to what was a very good win in the end. The second half was a controlled performance which TES dominated but did not add to their lead. A great win for the TES A team after their unfortunate defeat last week- well done boys!

B Team: TES 3 - 2 KES

TES B team followed the A team and put in an equally impressive performance. Early in the game it was end to end with KES and TES both creating chances to score. The TES defence looked more solid than last week with Chad, Haydn and Thomas protecting Ilyas in goal. The midfielders of Aayan, Finnley, Patrick, Oliver and Rocco had chances but were unable to score by half time. The second half was a lot more open with 5 goals scored in 10 minutes. KES got the breakthrough and went 1-0 up early in the second half, but TES fought back and showed great determination to get back in the game. TES scored an equaliser through Rocco with a good finish, then took the lead with a great strike by Patrick that flew into the top corner. TES maintained their attacking threat and increased the lead with good attacking play that resulted in a goal for Aayan. KES fought back and had chances to score but Ilyas in goal made a couple of great saves to keep the score 3-1 to TES. KES managed to get a second goal late on but TES showed great workrate and desire to keep the win they deserved. A huge improvement on last week’s performance and a well earned victory indeed!
