7 OCTOBER 2019 - MESSAGE FROM THE SPORTS DIRECTOR
XC Update
The AIMS Cross Country was initially scheduled for Monday 7th October but postponed due to the haze, which had affected most schools preparation. The new date is Monday 4th November and the venue is now MARDI (next to UPM). Final details will be sent out in due course. With this in mind, it is important that we step up our training so we are ready for the meet. Training will continue on the following days:

Tuesday - 7am (Sports Hall)
Wednesday - 2pm (KS2 CCA - Yr's 3-6 only)
Friday - 12.50-1.40 (Field)

This is also a team event so with that in mind we do need more runners, especially U15 (we currently have no runners (this will affect the U13 team as it is combined), and we do need more Year 4 & 5 girls for the U10 and U11 teams.

Please make sure you join the google classroom and the code is: uvwdyyb
Primary Swim Trials
The AIMS 2019 Swim Meet will take place on November 18 at IGB. There will be the annual Swim Trial on Wednesday 23rd October at Taylor's Puchong, times TBC (a letter will be out next week). Therefore if you want your son / daughter to be in this team then make sure they are training hard. A reminder that the swim team is for competent swimmers only, the standard is very high so those not in swim clubs will find it difficult to compete. Year 6 swimmers need to check their eligibility as many now fall into the U13 Secondary team.
KLSL O15 Girls Football
A clean sweep claims the Cup!

Despite the initial nerves, our Thunder girls 'thundered' through the competition with confidence and enthusiasm, winning every game in the round robin competition against 4 other international schools.

They started strong from the get go, going against a formidable HELP team. Our girls were intimidated by their opposition, but after Sarah's timely tap in from a set play, the team's confidence skyrocketed. Sarah came through for the team again in the second half, flying down the right side and shooting a killer strike.

Following that, all nerves were shaken off as every player carried their determination into the next game against Sri KDU. A handball in the box from the opposition won us a penalty, which was taken by our steady Korean forward, Yena.

The third match against St Joseph's further brought out the admirable teamwork and boss-like confidence from the girls. Our subs, Amelia and Sofea, stepped in and stepped up so much for the team. This proved that we have a deep bench! Once again, Sarah with her stinging right foot put us in the lead, and it was followed by Leena's eager left foot that brought it home for us in this match.

The last game proved to be our toughest as we went up against the home team TIS Puchong. Even after playing three games back to back, their legs didn't waver and the fire kept burning for a win. Competition was obliterated when we punched in two goals in the first half alone, thanks to Sarah and Leena...again!

Every player played a crucial role in this clean sweep for the Championship. Ai Xin, our goal-keeper, was a brick wall. Her long limbs and speedy reflexes saved some unbelievable, nerve-wracking shots that helped us walk away without any goals lost! MVP for sure. Also part of the wall were Sophie, who played every minute of every game at centre back stopping the strikers, Shung Yuiq, who sacrificially threw her body on the field to keep the ball out, and Ameera, who was a threat to every player in her way.

Elation is an understatement of what the team felt about the unexpected, but immensely well-deserved result. We hope to do it again next year, as defending champs!
KLSL U9 Boys Red Benchball Bowl
The development team went to Puchong having only trained a couple of times together and had a mixed bag of results!

The first game was against our sister school, Puchong, and we played really well - passing and moving into space. Due to this Team Thunder managed to win the game comfortably 6 - 1. The second game, against HELP, proved harder and it was a really close game but missed opportunities meant that we ended up losing the game 2 - 0.

The third game was one to forget, Team Thunder couldn't get out of their own half and were well beaten, 17 - 0, by APIS who played the best I have ever seen a team play in a competition (certainly should have been in the Cup not the Development Bowl).
AIMS U11 Girls Orange Basketball Round 1
Last Wednesday 2nd October 2019, we hosted the first-ever AIMS for the U11 Girls Basketball in a Home Game. The Round 1 seeing us, KTJ, Nexus Wolves and our sister school, Taylor's Lightning competing against each other so that the best top two can go for Final AIMS. The first game against Nexus Wolves, our girls started out fiercely and played their best to beat them 14-0. Second up against the favorite rival, Taylor's Lightning. Few quick passes and easy layups made these girls in the lead in the first half. However, few turnovers happened and that gave the opponents the chance to counter back and try to attack the hoops. We won with 16-8 and that put us in the lead and only need to play against KTJ now. The last match the girls played all out and gave the best results for today's match with a win, 20-5.

There are still some rooms for development for them and working out on the fitness before the Finals. Hopefully, Taylor's Thunder Team will bring back the gold as we finished third last season. All the best girls!

Coach : Ms. Bella
Team Orange : Maya, Sara Fujita, Megan, Natalie Koh, Mikayla, Yan Toong, Mayra, Aarini and Rania Sofiya.
KLSL O15 Boys Orange Football
The boys headed to Puchong on Thursday 3rd October firstly hoping to play (as the poor weather crept in closer and closer) but also to replicate the girls performance just two days prior. Turning up late didn't help the boys prep as first up where HELP, the only boys to have beaten them in the previous 4 years of KLISS and KLSL action. HELP were primed for action after their 2-0 defeat over Puchong and started off brightly with the Thunder boys making some uncharacteristic errors. Captain Keenan soon steadied the ship as he blasted home the opener from a free kick. The second half started in much the same fashion and as the clock ticked down Chee Syuen then went on a Maradona-esque run through the whole team and slotted home to make things safe. Or so we thought. HELP fired a 30 meter effort into the top corner and the last minutes would be a little more nervous than they should have been, but as always, the goal poacher Madhav made things safe as he scored with the last kick of the game and start things off with a 3-1 win.
Next up where St.Josephs and Madhav stepped up and scored with his first touch of the ball. Despite all the possession the game ended 1-0 but the boys know this wasn't one of their better performances.

With Ijaz missing due to injury and Timmy not allowed to attend, coach Mr.Ratcliffe brought in 3 boys for the U15's and another debutant (Ian) from Year 9 who all contributed significantly.

Game 3 against Puchong was a strange game. Only 6 weeks earlier the boys had defeated them 12-0 (double the length of game) but this was a completely different game as the puchong boys made things difficult from the off. Despite shot after shot with 3 minutes remaining the score remained goalless. Then Kuhan scuffed his shot which somehow and extremely fortunately trickled through the legs of the goalkeeper. On the next attack, Keenan made it 2-0 with another strike that wasn't perfectly struck. A win that the boys will try to forget very quickly. With three wins from 3 and other results going their way, it meant the boys were Champions with a game to spare. The final game against IGB was a formality as the thunder loomed in the background only the first half was played. By this stage it was 3-0 with debut goals from the U15 boys Roshan and Niyaz and another from Madhav.

Well done to the boys, good luck to the Year 11 boys for their exams and we will get together again to try and win back the AIMS (formerly KLISS) title at KTJ in November!
ISKL U13 & U14 Invitational Boys & Girls Football
The annual ISKL Panther tournament suffered a blow as the fixtures scheduled for Friday were postponed. This meant all fixtures moved to Saturday. The girls teams gathered and with only 5 U14 players, some of the older U13 girls had to move up which in turn weakened them a little.

The U13 girls started off against ISKL B and were 2-0 at HT with goals coming from Maya and Maisy. This allowed coach Mr.Ratcliffe to give all the substitutes a game and a 2-0 win was a great start. Next up were Alice Smith and despite the 3-0 loss it was a very even game. The KLASS GK saved 4 of Maya's shots and despite some fine saves by our own GK Ayuni the KLASS striker fired home a hat-trick.

Another 3-0 defeat by Marlborough College JB, mainly due to fatigue and naivety in defence meant they had one final game vs ISKL A. This turned out to be their best performance. Half time was 0-0 with GK Ayuni again in fine form, saving everything thrown at her. In the second half Maya Jasmine (usually the U11 GK) put Team Thunder ahead and with time up it was still 1-0. In time added on luck struck for ISKL as they equalised from a deflected shot. Nonetheless drawing with ISKL A shows that the girls should be confident for the AIMS and KLSL competitions coming up.

This meant the girls went into the 3rd/4th place play off vs KLASS. The scores were 0-0 at half time and it was anyone's game as the girls continued their impressive form from the previous game, especially the back 3 of defenders Hui Xin and Beatricia and GK Ayuni. Two quick goals from their nemesis KLASS striker made life a little harder but the girls showed their grit and resilience as Maya G side footed a goal back. As the girls pressed for an equalizer KLASS scored a somewhat undeserved third on the counter attack meaning the girls finished 4th which isn't a negative as the quality of schools finishing 1-3 was very high.

The U14 boys also started off with a 2-0 win over ISKL B, goals coming from Naveen and Tom. Sadly this was to be their best result, as the other games were hard work, especially as this was a team put together just for this competition (the boys train as U15 and are in different teams). ISKL A finished in a 2-0 loss(due to two defensive howlers) before Jakarta completely outplayed them in a 6-0 rout. The final games both came against our arch rivals from Puchong. The group game ended 0-0, meaning both finished level on points so we played out the 3rd/4th place play off. With GK Min Jin having to leave early, Andre volunteered to go in goal. Captain Seunggoo fired the boys ahead before a defensive lapse from a free kick allowed Puchong to draw level. TISP went ahead 2-1 after the break and despite the best efforts to equalise it was Puchong who took home the bronze medals.

As the U13 girls were busy on the Zurich Grass field, the U14 girls started their game against Sunway. The girls started well even though it was a little slow at the beginning for both teams. Our goalkeeper, Sylvia who was pushed up from the U13 made a great save when she blocked the opponent attempt with just one hand. Maria had a few attempts in both halves but managed to score just one goal whilst Clarissa scored two. The game ended with a 3-3 draw. After half an hour of rest, the girls were back on the field and this time they played against ISKL. It wasn't an easy game and we lost this game 4-0, which probably due to more experienced players in the opposition team. The third match was played against TIS Puchong. It was a good start when we had a few attempts while the goal was open but luck wasn't on our side. The highlight in this game was one of the goals not being accepted by the referee despite him blowing the whistle, Puchong claiming they weren't ready. Either way the goal didn't count and Puchong won 2-1. The last group match against Jakarta International School (JIS). This really made a difference to the players when we had to move to the Zurich Grass field which is bigger. In this game, Sylvia was in a pressure position on the first half when penalty was given to JIS team due to hand ball by one of our players but she saved it well. Our team gave 100% effort despite playing under the hot, sunny weather. We didn't score any goals in this game (they scored 6 and were crowned Champions) but the spirit that they put into this match was admirable. Even though it sounds like we didn't get a chance to play again but we actually got the opportunity played for 3rd and 4th place with Puchong team. It was a long day for most of our players and this didn't help them to play well in this game. Clarissa had a few attempts but it seems we need more luck and practice. We lost to Puchong 5-0 and went back home in 4th position. Overall, more practice is required. Not just in the skills but also fitness.

CALL OUT FOR U13 & U15 GIRLS - THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR WE HAVE NOT HAD TWO TEAMS IN EACH AGE GROUP. PLEASE COME ALONG AND HELP THE TEAM. U13 TRAIN ON TUESDAYS AND U15 THURSDAY, BOTH 3.45 - 4.45.

Under 13 Boys played in the Zurich grass field. It was their 1st match after 3weeks training minus the haze and holidays. It was a shaky start going down to ISKL 'B' 1-0. ISKL were very much prepared and caught our defend by surprise. As it was the 1st match, we went back to the drawing board. Coach Mr Sarveas changed our tactical as we now have to win all three matches to qualify for the finals. Next we were against KLASS 'A'. They had an early lead but our boys didn't give up. We had our chances but their defends were strong. Half time we had changed tactics again and it worked out by Peter scoring the equalising goal in stoppage time. It was a beautiful set up from the goalkeeper, Kaesern setting it for Mihir. A through ball from Nicklas to sprinting Peter who made sure he finish it this time, and he did it. Placing the ball on the right corner of the goal post. The game ended with a draw.

Match against Marlborough College JB was a nerverecking game. Both teams came close to scoring and it was Nicklas who made a screamer with a shot from half field. He noticed the keeper was not concentrating and took advantage with his powerful left kick. The keeper caught the ball but it was not enough to save the hard kick, the ball bounced of the keepers hand in their own net. Kaesern made some world class goalkeeping save when he jumps 1 meter to the right to block the ball which was shot to the right top corner.With that save we had our 1st win.

The last match against ISKL 'A' was a must win match. We defended very strongly for the 1st half. They tried all their way to score a goal but failed. They begin to stress out as they couldn't penetrate our defence. We had our chance but was stopped by their goalie. 2nd a mistake in our midfield made an opening for their best player to come in a take a shot which resulted in a goal. After that goal our players were down. With that the opponent took advantage by scoring another goal. We had to sub 3 players to get the team back on track but it was to late.

We qualified for the 3rd & 4th match against KLASS 'A'. For the 3rd and 4th placing we played on a much smaller pitch with artificial grass. The artificial grass was heating up from the scorching sun indirectly heating up the football boots. As it was almost 2pm and the kids were already playing since morning. Our boys didn't have the fitness to maintain anymore. We went down 1-0 and went back home in 4th position. Overall, more practice is required. Not just in the skills but also fitness.
