What a phenomenal Football Festival we had on Friday afternoon! It was the Annual U7 BNIS hosted event.
A total of four schools participated, each entering two teams: Braeside A & B, Mt. Kenya Academy A & B, Braeburn Imani A & B and the hosts Braeburn Nanyuki A & B.
Our B team performed extremely well but unfortunately did not make it through to the quarter finals on goal difference. Despite a not so strong start, our A team played remarkably well and fought their way all the way through to the finals!
The final was a nail biting game that was taken to penalties. All bystanders, including parents, teachers and headteachers were on edge as shot after shot was taken. A fantastic save put us ahead but we were sadly not out of the woods as the next shot went wide! Our final penalty taker took to the spot under extreme pressure - her shot was win or lose for us, and...SHE SCORED!!!!! Braeburn Nanyuki had won the tournament to the huge delight of everyone.
The excitement throughout the day was unparalled, the children displayed great talent and resilience and above all everyone present had LOTS of fun! Bravo to everyone involved especially the coaches - Mr Mulongo, Mrs MacKay and Mrs Mills- and thank you to Mr Masafu and Mr Franco for all their hard work to organise the event!
