This has been an amazing season of soccer for both divisions, and lessons were taught and learnt in the process. As a new coaching staff, we were very pleased to win to the Vaal River Soccer League. The self-esteem of many players has improved. SHS supported us well, allowing the coaching staff to use the school’s facilities. Many parents supported our players during matches.
The respect and discipline that the players and coaching staff had towards one another is absolutely humbling. When the U/15 did not make it through to the semi-finals, they accepted it graciously and even trained during the holidays with the U/17 in order to help them win the Vaal River Soccer league.
The U/15 and U/17 opponents were the following high schools: Suncrest, Vaal High, Suiderlig, Prestigeous, Riverside, General Smuts, Carel de Wet, Drie Riviere.
Results for U/15s:
The team lost 4 games and won 4 games.
Results for U/17s:
Lost 2 games, won 5 games, drew 1 game. The U/17s played against Suncrest and Carel de Wet in the semi-finals and finals, and won the Vaal Triangle Soccer League.
