ycis-news-football-acamis-1Last month, Yew Chung International School of Shanghai (YCIS Shanghai) held a successful three-day football tournament for international students from across China at the school’s Century Park and Regency Park Campuses. As an inaugural division, the Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS) Silver built upon the success of earlier competitions this year to produce an excellent football tournament.

As the youngest team in the competition, YCIS Shanghai’s girls’ team won their first match against YCIS Hong Kong and moved into the top four teams. Their win permitted them to play in the final two matches of the tournament and they ended up placing 4th in the girls’ division of the tournament.

The school’s boys’ team finished their pool matches in 4th position with two wins. However, with positional changes by Coach Ian Lee, along with committed teamwork and self-confidence, the team was inspirational as they worked together to score two goals in the final stages of their semi-final, claiming the victory from the number-one seeded school. In an all-YCIS final match, YCIS Shanghai played YCIS Hong Kong. The competitive and thrilling final saw the YCIS Shanghai boys’ team take an early lead and win the Boys ACAMIS Silver Championship 3-1.

In addition, YCIS Shanghai students also represented the school by being selected to participate in ACAMIS All Star teams during the competition. Anita (Year 9), Ian (Year 11), Toby (Year 12), and Spencer (Year 12) demonstrated their strong skills and hard work as part of these special teams.
