The TISA Titans Middle School Girls Football
team travelled to participate in the MS Girls Football Tournament 2018 Riga, Latvia on November 2nd.

The team started the day off with an amazing 7 - 2 win against ISB. Their winning streak continued for the remainder of the day with a 4 - 0 victory against IICS and 3 - 0 against AAS. AAS were the team who beat us in the final last year in penalties. The girls were ecstatic after playing a day of amazingly entertaining football, pressing their opponents in their own halves.

On the second day of the tournament, we played two games back to back. We met ISL first beating them 4-0 followed by PSI with yet another victory 4-0 without conceding a single   goal. This lead us to meet ISB in the final and yes, we did it, we are now CEESA Middle School Girls champions for the first time in TISA history.

Maytham Al-Rubaye, TISA Athletics Director and MS Girls Football coach mentioned about the teamwork demonstrated by the girls throughout the games:‘I’m so proud of the girls. They played beautiful football. Some families came to watch TISA girls play after hearing how great they were. They worked as a unit throughout the entire tournament. Every single girl did the job to perfection and gave no chance to the other teams to gain control, pressed them the entire game. They had most of the possession being cool headed and trusting one another.’                                                                                                                                                                                                

I loved being part of the CEESA football trip. It was an amazing experience to travel with such a great team and I haven't had that much fun in a long time. ”


Participating in CEESA was an absolute honour for me and I truly had a wonderful time playing football, bonding and exploring Latvia with my team. It is an unforgettable experience that I have learned from! "


Again like last year, the trip with the middle school girls to a football tournament in Latvia was amazing. I got to bond with the whole team and it was truly memorable. I made so many inside jokes and had an amazing time playing football.”
