U13 Football Squad secure Championship
On Tuesday, 26th November TES U13 football squad took on KES in the rescheduled final of the ISACK football competition after the bad weather the week before. At full time the scores were level at 0-0 after two strong defensive displays from both teams. The scores remained level after extra time and the game went to penalties. After 5 penalties the score was 2-2. After 3 more sudden death penalties the score remained 2-2. The coaches from both teams then agreed that the fairest result possible would be to share the shield so both teams were crowned champions of the U13 ISACK football competition for 2013/14. A fantastic achievement for the TES boys who have defended the title from last year. Please see the U13 football final blog post to read more.
