December saw our Inter House Football tournaments.
Year 2 Inter-House Football
On Monday 7th December Year 2 participated in an Inter-house football tournament. It was a fantastic occasion enjoyed by all. When the boys were in Year 1, the 2014 champions were Ravine and with a new improved format it would be interesting to see if they could retain their title.
The champions in the Premier League were Ravine, claiming all nine points available with a fantastic goalkeeping display by Alastair van der Meer. Most Valuable players of the tournament were Ibrahim Choudhry for giving 100 percent and making good defensive tackles; and Alexander Morawitz for his determination which led to him scoring an absolute cracker of a goal.
In the Europa League Ravine and Kingsmere were crowned joint winners on 8 points. Most Valuable Player awards went to Hyon-Soo Pak for his excellent individual ball control and Ishaan Chinoy (who despite being injured) contributed superbly well as an assistant referee.
Ravine were the winners in the Champions League, and overall winners of Year 2 Inter-house football. Most Valuable players of the tournament were Kameron Litten for his impressive attitude and determination as well shooting and scoring with both his left and right foot; and San Lee for his excellent work rate and scoring a fantastic left footed volley.
Year 1 Inter-House Football
Tuesday 8th December saw the Year 1 boys participate in their first inter-house event. As the rain eased off towards kick-off and supporters turned out in huge numbers it made for a terrific start. The boys showed their excellent individual ball control dribbling in and out of oncoming defenders. There was also top quality passing which contributed to plenty of goals being scored.
The winners in the Premier league were Queensmere scoring 9 points with Peter Stockil contributing by scoring a hatful of goals. Most Valuable Player in the premier League was Sammy Hull (Kingsmere) for determination and excellent ball control. Milo Lennon also won the Most Valuable player award for his determination and ‘Never Say Die’ attitude.
In the Europa league Kingsmere were the champions collecting 8 points out of a possible 9. Arran Clay scored the vital winner with only two seconds left to play in the final match. Oliver Elliot in Bluegate won Most Valuable Player for his determination trying his very best in every game. Scott Lee was voted Most Valuable Player for his great defending and ability to find space on the pitch.
The Champions league winners Kingsmere finished on a total of 9 points and were nicknamed ‘Mini Barcelona’ due to the outstanding passing. Most Valuable player of the tournament went to Aiden Ahmad for making great runs into space and when he received the ball he always had his head up looking to see which teammate he could pass it to. Gabriel Mungavin in Ravine won Most Valuable Player due to his great defending making it hard for the opposition to go past him, earning the nick name “The Wall” over the course of the tournament.
After all the points were added up, Kingsmere were crowned Inter-House football champions.
