On Friday 15th November the BIS Boys and Girls teams travelled to the American International School (AIS) to take part in their invitational soccer competition.
The girls played against AIS and won with an excellent result: Michella Markey opened the match by scoring the first goal, not satisfied with only one goal Olaedo Okafor tucked the ball nicely into the AIS net to extend the lead to 2 - 0. Fatima Makama finished the game with a strong shot from the midfield to make it a convincing win at 3-0. The clean sheet was also well deserved by the efforts of the BIS defence, in particular Oluchi Okwu's talented defending skills were demonstrated by preventing the opposition from scoring.
The Boys played two matches. The first a 0-0 draw with Whitesands. In the second game they lost to AIS by 2 -1. The sole goal coming from Paul Coker thanks to an assist from Olugbenga Adeyinka.
