Strong Opponent Munich Brings First Defeat for JV Boys

This weekend, the JV Boys Football team traveled to Munich, not for the beer or Weisswurst, but to defeat Munich International School.

Instead of wearing Lederhosen, the boys were shin-guard-clad for the 6 o’clock kick-off Friday evening.

The game was very tight, with both teams having several opportunities but neither side managing to convert them into goals. The second half became increasingly nail-biting though the final score remained 0-0. We all knew autumn was upon us when dusk fell and Mr. Lakin said, “my old eyes could not see to the ball on the other side of the pitch”.

The next morning, fresh and brisk, the boys were even more determined to win. At 11:30 the game started. Soon after, MIS managed to sneak through our defense and take the lead. Fighting back, we managed to equalize with a beautiful goal from Tim Reif (‘18), which made it 1-1. With one of our key midfielders, Sam Reza (‘19), injured, we struggled to maintain control of the game and unfortunately we ended with a 3-1 defeat.

The team made strong plays but sometimes the ball just seemed to slip through; hopefully, when we meet Munich again at SCIS, we will show them what we are really made of.
