After weeks of pre-season training The British School of Kuwait girls U13 netball team got under way with their first game being played away at The English Academy. The team came away with a convincing victory winning the game by a massive 34 goals to 1.
The next game saw BSK host NES and despite it being a tougher match, the girls again achieved a comfortable victory over the visitors by a score of 16 goals to 4. As the end of March approached and the third game to be played against KES was looming, BSK expected to meet a team that could upset their 100% record. Hosting the game, BSK had the home advantage and soon realised that with a half time lead of 17 to 2 that they looked to be well on the way to victory. KES came out much stronger in the last two quarters but were not quite strong enough and the game ended with a BSK victory of 29 goals to 6.
The next game saw BSK hosting The English School and with them as 2010-11 netball title holders they certainly expected to meet the toughest opponents yet. TES lived up to their champions’ status and played some excellent netball. BSK were able to get to half time trailing by just a four goal deficit, however, as TES had brought a squad of 14 girls they were pretty much able to put a new team out for the second half and their fresh legs just proved too much for these seven BSK girls and TES went away winners of the match.
Having had their winning streak upset by TES the BSK girls were keen to train harder to ensure that their next game against ESF resulted in victory and a place in the semi finals. Hosting that game in early April the girls won convincingly in a 16–0 victory proving their hard work and commitment paid off.
The semis saw BSK meet again with NES and the game finished in a comfortable victory for BSK. The result of the other semi-final meant BSK were to play KES in the final after they surprisingly beat the favourites TES.
With NES hosting, the girls were fired up and having beat KES in the league game, were hopeful of bringing the title home. It was by no means an easy game to win but the strength of the BSK girls just proved too much for the KES team and the result of the game at 21–13 meant BSK ended up worthy winners of the U13 ISACK netball championships. This was a triple win for many of these girls, having already claimed the Volleyball and Basketball titles.
