For all the schedules and results, please visit our sports website – aishk.socssport.com
U20 Boys Basketball
Our U20 Boys come into the season with a young squad, many of which fit into the U16 age group. However, they have also fronted up and all performed admirably so far in their two matches. Their first fixture was against our neighbours YCIS, which was a tough physical match. Our boys maintained a constant lead throughout and finished up winning 47-36. In their second fixture earlier this week, they visited ICS (International Christian School). With a few injuries and illnesses, we went with a light squad, however, once against punched well above their weight. The Kangaroos managed hold on in a tight match to win 43-36.
U20 Girls Basketball
Our senior girls team played their season opener last week against CDNIS (Canadian International School) in another physical battle. In what was a defence heavy game, our girls fronted up in the big moments to take a 20-12 victory over a strong CDNIS team. The girls second fixture against Discovery College has had to be postponed, so we look forward to watching another battle once that game has been scheduled.
U14 Boys Basketball
This year our U14 boys have been placed in division 1 of the basketball league, meaning they are facing the best of the best each week. We have a large squad of boys who are all keen play ball each match. Our first two fixtures have been against large basketball schools RCHK (Renaissance College) and ICS (International Christian School). Although the results have not gone our way, losing to RCHK 19-36 and to ICS 16-56, our boys have not been deterred and are still loving being involved in basketball and representing their school.
U14 Girls Basketball
Our girls also have been entered into division 1, and their first match was going to be one of the toughest. Heading out to Tai Tam to play HKIS (Hong Kong International School), our girls were not phased. It was always going to be a hard match, but our girls fronted and fought right to the end. In what many would call an upset, our Roo’s come home winners in a thriller, 30-29. Their second match was even more of a challenge against ICS. The height and shooting ability of the opposition was a little too much and girls went down 26-38.
U12 Boys Basketball
A huge squad of U12 Boys have been eager to play for weeks. They finally got their chance against a strong CIS (Chinese International School). Although the boys played well and everyone got game time, they couldn’t keep up with the height and skill of the CIS team, losing 14-30. They then took on ISF (Independent Schools Foundation Academy) earlier this week without our Year 5 players. It was extremely tough in what could be the strongest team in the league, going down 8-30.
U16 Boys Soccer
Our boys squad has grown with plenty at trainings eager to represent AISHK. We had our first match against our neighbours YCIS, starting strong and going up 3-0 at half time. There must have been something in the water as YCIS bounced back in the second scoring 3 of their own, finishing the game a 3-3 draw. Our next game was against ISF away, a strong team that had 2 wins under their belt already. Our boys playing well and managed to take it to another 3-3 draw.
U16 Girls Soccer
The U16 girls have many girls new to the game, just wanting to get out there and have some fun while developing their skills as a soccer team. They started their season with a challenging match against YCMA. The opposition were very strong footballers and didn’t let the Roo’s get into their groove, losing 1-4. We look forward to the girls second fixture this afternoon against NAIS.
