It was a perfect setting: a sunny – but cool – Saturday morning, a smooth pitch and a football. Parents, teachers, students, exstudents and even aggregates* joined in to play in the First Founder’s Day Football Mini-Tournament. Four, teams one dream: the privilege to be called the best in school! The mini-tournament consisted of two semi-final matches, one thirdplace match and the Grand Finale! In the first match of the day, the Alumni Falcons Team (former Falcon Team) played against a mixed Ex-Student-Teacher-Parent-Aggregates Team and came out with a close victory 2 x 0 thanks to the fantastic saves by Alex, the Ex- Student-Teacher-Parent-Aggregates Team goalkeeper! After the match, this is what one unidentified teacher had to say “We did not lose! We just did not win!!” That just about sums it all up! In the second match of the day, the Current Falcons Team faced a mixed Current Student-Teacher Team. The Current Falcons came out with an exciting victory 3 x 1 to reach the much anticipated Final Match-up against the Alumni Falcons Team. In the battle for the honorable 3rd Place, the mixed Ex-Student- Teacher-Parent-Aggregates Team counted on some new and rested starters to try and stop the dynamic Current Student-Teacher Team. That didn’t seem to intimidate the fast and young students who came out with their first victory of the day, 2 x 1 to earn 3rd Place. The Grand Finale was a true battle! The referee, somewhat distracted in the first two matches, had to keep a close attention at all times! The game was well played, with hard, but clean plays by both teams. After two 20-minute periods, the Alumni Falcons Team came out with a slight edge to beat the Current Falcons Team 2 x 1 in a thrilling finale to win the First Founder’s Day Football Mini-Tournament. In the end, great sportsmanship prevailed and both teams recognized each others strengths! After the matches the general feeling was “Why don’t we do this more often!?” cried Igor Santa-Maria’94. “When is the next school event? We need another football tournament!” concluded Marcelo Sá’96.
TAABS has promised to organize another football tournament in the next school event, as well as promoting more integration between ex-students and the school community. This friendly atmosphere is what The British School has that is so special. We ought to nurture this more often! Thank you to all of you who, current students and alumni, families and friends, were present at the event and have been supporting TBS and TAABS always!
