STS FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT

 
 

Jerusalem, 15 March, 2017
LANGAN John

It was a chilly and windy day this past Wednesday and the skies were threatening to rain, but in the end, to the joy of all the competitors, the weather held out and the annual STS Spring Football Tournament was completed without any interference from the weather.

This year the tournament was held at Kraft Stadium at the northern end of Sacher Park. It began soon after 2pm and the action continued until 5pm. It was an afternoon of high spirits for all the students and staff of the STS. The field size allowed for a team of 8 + 1 on each side and the games consisted of two ten minute halves.

Results of the first four games

St. Paul       2 Blues 1
Clusters 2 Jazz 1
Jazz             1 St. Paul   0
Blues           2 Clusters  2

After the initial round points were tallied, Clusters were leading, but St. Paul and Jazz had to go to a penalty shoot-out to determine who would face Clusters in the final. In the shoot-out St. Paul defeated Jazz 2-0.

The Final match was set between Clusters and St. Paul. After the regular time ran out and the score was still 0-0, the final match went to a penalty shoot-out. It was a tense few minutes for both teams, but in the end Clusters triumphed over St. Paul by scoring 4 penalty shots compared to Clusters 3.  It was a great tournament for all the players and we look forward to next year’s competition.

Final Points

1st Clusters 13
2nd St. Paul 10
3rd Jazz  5
4th Blues  3

A big thanks to Fr. Biju Michael the STS Principal, Br. John Paul Soro SDB, the STS student representative, the class leaders, and the team captains who organized and made this event possible.
