The Shark's Tale

  • It was a great week for Sharks Soccer! The boys soundly defeated  KISQ 4-1 on Tuesday, while the girls clobbered NSWE 4-0 on Wednesday. Gi Choi was in net for the boys while Justin Boeing (2), Justin Yook and Eric Ip scored our goals. Carel Liu dominated the girls game,  scoring two goals and earning part of the shutout. Julia Kuttig and Rose Song were the other goaltenders during the game. Klara Halikova and Line Folkersen also scored for the girls. Great job to all!

McKinley Smith shows a lot of hustle beating a NSWE player to the ball in Wednesday's game.

  • QISS is looking for corporate sponsorship for the upcoming ACAMIS Soccer Tournament here at QISS. If you are interested please contact Dominic Adie at dadie@qiss.org.cn.
