It was joy and fun at Beit Jala seminary soccer stadium as STS soccer team for the first time since it was officially constituted faced the Bethlehem Oratory team. The friendly match was organized by Fr. Vincent Raj John Bosco, the director of the Salesian oratory in Bethlehem. Everybody was excited and ready as the match kicked off at 6.30pm. Each team was qualitatively constituted and took their skills into action. In the first half STS took control of the game keeping it to their opponent's side, but unfortunately Bethlehem oratory sneaked in a goal that shook the STS. Thus was the end of the first half, 1-0 for the Bethlehem Oratory. Up to their toes the STS tactfully made their first goal by Samuel Sessay, sdb in the beginning of the second half, by dribbling their defenders. Within a short time he did it again and got STS leading 2-1. Then the game became tough as both teams sought to win and defend at the same time, Bethlehem team made a goal making it 2-2. STS was in control of the game that made it tough for their opponent who struggled and wanted to make a goal by all means. Things changed for STS as their goal keeper Samwel Severin Sagut, sdb got injured and had to be substituted by David Vernon Lushibashi, sdb. Towards the very last minute Bethlehem got a free kick that helped them make a leading goal. Bethlehem team won against STS 3-2. Speaking to their captains and players of both teams, they appreciated the game as both accepted that it was challenging for them to make goals. They look forward for more matches to come. All had snacks together at the end of the game organized by the Bethlehem Oratory.

We congratulate our STS team under the leadership of their captains Herve Tougma, m.afr. and Vernon Lushibashi, sdb.
