The girls battled hard throughout the day and faced so many challenges. Knees were black and blue, arms scratched and egg’s on heads but they never gave in!
The U13 girls started their campaign with a convincing win against BIS Jakarta. It was a good way to start giving the girls time to settle. This match had all the coaches talking. Everyone knew that GIS were the team to beat.
Next up saw the team buckle under the pressure put on by Alice Smith giving us a disappointing defeat. Next up was Patana, a strong athletic team who while not as skilful as the GIS girls, they were quick and strong. GIS lead all the way through only for Patana to equalise on the buzzer. 2 mins extra time and they did it again. With 10 seconds to go – another crushing defeat.
The girls were down but not out. Two convincing wins against Tanglin and Harrow put GIS in 2nd after the groups ready to take on Patana again in the final. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be as the Patana girls attacked from the tip off tearing ahead by 10 points in the first few minutes. But GIS never gave up and gave a very good account of themselves. A very well deserved Silver medal for a team who looks very promising for next years U15 title.
