The American International School of Zagreb and the Anglo American School of Sofia arrived in town to play some games on Friday and Saturday with the ISB Dragons. The school community came out in force to support the teams and there was a great atmosphere in the Bubble Gym on both days. Please see game reports below. MS Girls’ Basketball The Middle School girls’ basketball team played their hearts out this weekend against the International School of Sofia. All of the girls worked hard when they were out on the court and cheered from the benches. We were able to work on the skills that we covered during practice in the game and it was great to finally see that these things do apply to a real-game situation! The Lady Dragons won both of their games and we were so proud of all of them and the way they played with ISB pride and good sportsmanship. Well done Lady Dragons!! MS Boys’ Basketball On Friday and Saturday the Middle School Boys Basketball team went up against a very competitive squad from the Anglo-American School of Sofia. Friday was the first game that the boys have had this year and they used their excitement to jump out to an early lead. The game was marked by a true team effort as the Dragons battled the taller Sofia team throughout and were able to come away with a victory. Saturday's game was a testament to both team’s strength and will power as the lead changed hands a number of times throughout the contest. Going into the closing minutes, the Dragons were down by four points. Applying full court pressure, the boys were able to claw back and took the lead on clutch free throws in the last seconds. Sofia had one last chance to score but the boys played tenacious defense and came away with the victory. It was an excellent team effort and the Dragons hope to build on this success as they start the road toward the CEESA tournament. HS Boys’ Basketball The High School Boys’ Basketball team split a pair of games last weekend with the American International School of Zagreb (AISZ). In the first game, Zagreb player Bret Atkins’ 43 points were the difference in a 51-70 defeat for the Dragons. The game was closer than the final score indicated as AISZ made a late run. The Dragons were led by the senior duo of Doron Koll and Panayot Panayotov, who combined for 34 points. In the second game, the Dragons stormed back and cruised to a 76-66 victory. Grade 9 student Luka Gobelic scored 34 points and made 67% of his shots. Another freshman, Carl Kelly, also contributed significantly with 13 points. Congratulations goes to all of the players on their efforts and teamwork. HS Girls’ Basketball In the girls' first game action of the 2009-2010 basketball season, the Dragons came out determined and gave a great overall effort. The focus of the two games was consistent improvement, and, although their game on Friday evening was a difficult loss, the final matchup on Saturday morning was very competitive. Throughout all eight quarters of the two games, the ISB Dragons continued to shave the point margin smaller and smaller. Led by Captains Luci Novak and Lana Al Huneidi, playing forward and guard respectively, the Dragons improved their passing and prevention of fast break opportunities for the opposing team. Overall the girls had great success with their teamwork and camaraderie, and they will look to further refine their skills during practice in the coming weeks. This weekend, our HS Boys’ will be welcoming the NOVA School of Skopje to the Bubble to play games on Saturday morning at 10am and again on Sunday morning at 9am. Please come on down and support the ISB Dragons. Go Dragons!!!!
