Sports Friendlies: Pelita vs. Tenby (Football)
Pelita International played two friendly matches at Tenby's ground on the 2nd of November. It was the first match of the semester.
The girls' match started first. It was the first girls match in Pelita school's history. Though they showcased strong enthusiasm throughout their debut match, they did not manage to defeat the other team. Our only goal was scored by Angela Wu from Y11, who is also captain.
The boys, mostly juniors from KS3, were playing for the first time in the absence of their seniors who have graduated last semester. Only 4 students from KS4 made it onto the team. Playing against a strong Tenby side, our boys started well as they managed to deny many chances which were created by Tenby. They created a few chances for themselves but poor finishing let them down. Tenby gained momentum and managed put a few shots past our goalkeeper Leon. Our only goal was scored by Chiin Yinn from Y9. Despite the defeat, it was a good outing for the boys, as they have realised that they have to come out of the shadows of their seniors who were the backbone of the team previously. All the players vowed to train harder and perform better in the next game.
