TASIS returned from the NISSA Tournament in Milan with the winners’ trophy after a great day of soccer in the sunshine. Congratulations to the team.

TASIS 11 - 0 British School of Milan 

Our first opponents put up a spirited performance but struggled to put TASIS under real pressure. TASIS looked dangerous and in a restrained performance scored 11 goals from Autumn Bachofen (’21), Carly Bachofen (’22) x 3; Alejandra Cova (’22), Renata Sanchez Dau (’21), Lucia Ugolotti (’20) x 2, Molly Siegenthaler (’21) x 2; Sofia Rita (’21). Keeper Airi Barnes (’20) made two impressive saves to keep a clean sheet. Assists came from Autumn Bachofen (’21) x 2, Carly Bachofen (’22) and Alejandra Cova (’21).

TASIS 4 - 4 St Louis

St Louis only had eight players but were a difficult team to break down. Organised and athletic with a good use of space, TASIS worked hard to take the lead in the game. Goals from captain Daisy Bachofen (’20), Alejandra Cova (’21) x 2 and Carly Bachofen (’22) took TASIS into a 4-2 lead. Assists came from Molly Siegenthaler (’21) and Autumn Bachofen (’21). However, TASIS were unable to clear the ball from the danger zone on more than one occasion and this exposed the team to opportunities which St Louis took to level the game in the dying minutes. Again keeper Airi Barnes (’20) commanded her goal area with two crucial dynamic saves.

TASIS 3 - 2 St Stephen's

St Stephen’s School Rome were a full complement and like St Louis were organised and intentional. Molly Siegenthaler (’21) scored from a free kick in the first half but St Stephen’s pulled one back. TASIS’s Alejandra Cova (’22) scored with an assist from Penelope Baroni (’21) to win the match for TASIS. Airi Barnes (’20) made another three important close saves in goal, including one before halftime, to ensure a victory for TASIS.

TASIS 1 - 0 AS Milan

AS Milan played a defensive game and put all their players behind the ball and made it hard for TASIS to score. There were not signs of the 26 goals scored in the previous two matches against ASM in what was a competitive and fiery fixture. For each minute that ASM kept TASIS out, a sense of anxiety developed in the TASIS camp. However the team showed great character and resolve to work tirelessly to win the game with the winning goal coming from Molly Siegenthaler (’21) assisted by Alejandra Cova (’22). It was fitting it was these two players who combined for the tournament winning goal because they played so well throughout.
