CISSA Varsity Boys Football Tournament
On November 4th 2016, Hayah’s Varsity Boys Football Team played in the annual CISSA Tournament at The International School of Choueifat. Playing a host of regional International Schools, HIA went into the tournament in buoyant mood, with only one defeat in five games for the academic year. One win & one draw was only good enough for HIA to finish second in the group stages, purely on goal difference calculations. As a result, HIA were drawn in the semi-finals against AIS – the only team to have beaten them this season. Despite taking an early lead, HIA fell behind 2-1, which was eventually the final score. Not too disappointed to have missed the out on the final, HIA dusted themselves off for the 3v4 play-off to beat MES 2-1 & finish 3rd overall. Well done to the whole team & coaches Ahmad & Sherif for their dedicated & hard work for the season so far.
