On Saturday, 3rd of December, the IAA U18 football teams participated in the knock-out stages of the AAC. Both IAA girls and boys were on hand to give their all for the shirt.
The U18 boys played against ABS at the ABS campus for the semi-final, and after a very tough and physical match, the U18 boys did not manage a comeback to beat the ABS, losing 2-1 in the semi’s and finishing 3rd. It was a great performance by the boys, but sometimes, a little luck is needed to break through. Our Hawks did not have enough luck to go through!
As for the U18 girls, the girls went on to win their semi-final game comprehensively and then continued to win their final after an amazing match under the floodlights and great suspense with late goals by both teams. Our Hawks girls finished the match in penalties and brought home the GOLD!
I would like to thank everyone involved in this great achievement. Our Hawks are performing well, with a wonderful spirit and great sportsmanship.
