CMAC Under 16 Football Tournament

Johnny Velechovský

Every year CMAC (Chiang Mai Athletic Conference), hosts sports tournaments for all international schools in Chiang Mai. One such tournament was recently held at Prem Tinsulanonda International School. The event was hosted and directed by CDSC, the Christian German School Chiang Mai. This was the Under 16 Football tournament.

Prem vs. CDSC

In the competition,each team played at least four games to decide the winners. It was really an exciting day to watch some great footy. One by one, teams were eliminated leaving the last two teams, Prem and NIS.

The final between these two was a grueling battle between two very excellent teams. The passes, the shots, the attempts, the goals! Nevertheless, Prem shocked the whole world (OK, just Chiang Mai) with an awesome victory at the end of the day. The U16 Girls final was well played but ended with a tie. To break the tie, the match ended with a shoot out. It was a nerve-wracking experience watching every shot to see whether it would break the tie. In the end however, Lanna scored the last goal and took the gold in 2005. Every team has another chance to settle their rivalries next school year or at the FUTSAL tournament at the end of this school year.

Results for the U16 Boys were 1st Prem, 2nd NIS, 3rd Grace, 4th CMIS, 5th CDSC, 6th APIS, and 7th Lanna. The results for the U16 Girls were: 1st Lanna, 2nd Grace, 3rd Prem, 4th CMIS, 5th CDSC, 6th NIS and 7th APIS.

Next season sees basketball being played for CMAC tournaments.
