Under 11 Girls’ Netball, Friday 10th February 2017
The BSME Under 11 Girl’s Netball team played against El Alsson in a series of games, to help both teams prepare for the BSME games in March.
Our girls played well and were able to practice some of their set plays, from centre passes and back lines, they played a variety of positions to find their best fit. We still need to play some tougher competition to finalise ‘who will be playing where’. Malak Ehsan played centre very well and was able to cover the whole court comfortably, due to her great fitness levels. Leyla Ramadan shot excellently as goal shooter, as did Jana Gaber. Jana Gaber, Zeinab Bashier and Salma El Hashash also made some lovely interceptions as our defenders and they all worked extremely hard. Solid performances came from Maryam Banaja, Maya ElShishiny, Hannah El Ghamrawi, Aida Abdel Razek and Alia Abouel Makarem, who all played a variety of positions.
The next game will be against our own Under 13 team - some experienced players.

On the morning of Friday 10th February, BISC hosted a friendly Under 9 Touch Rugby competition that involved the participation of three Schools: BISC, MBIS and El Alsson.
BISC were able to field two teams, as were El Alsson, while MBIS fielded a very strong single team; this meant that the two Under 9 boys’ teams were able to have four games each, to gain some valuable match practice. BISC team ‘2’ began the tournament by losing to MBIS; they then went on to beat El Alsson team ‘1’, drawing against El Alsson team ‘2’ and losing to BISC team ‘1’. BISC team ‘1’ beat both El Alsson teams, then beat BISC team ‘2’, before losing to the strongest team in the friendly competition MBIS.
The Under 9 boys thoroughly enjoyed their morning Touch Rugby. This was their first experience of a competitive fixture. The boys showed some excellent skills when running with the ball, while avoiding opposition players, they also exhibited some good organizational and teamwork skills.
