Avicenna earn a cup final spot after penalty shoot-out
There was a surprise result in last Sundays Greenfields Cup U10 semi-final round when Avicenna School took league runners-up PIE Dragons to a 2-2 draw in regulation time and then went on to take the tie in a 4-3 penalty shoot-out and earned the right to play BIS Red on May 31st in the Gala Day event. Avcenna, despite losing 3-0 to Dragons earlier on in the season, hung-on against a series of a attacks in a torrid last quarter, and kept their nerve in the sudden death shoot-out in front a packed touchline. This will be Avicenna’s first cup-final appearance in their 8th season in the league and well deserved.
Also in The Greenfields Cup, Bogor Raya scraped past a highly mobile National High side in the U12C/D/E competition by 1 goal to nil thanks to a second half strike from William Budiman to go through to meet Tunas Muda in the final who beat Bina Bangsa 4-1. Bogor Raya top the U12 C division with 7 wins from 7 and National High prop-up the table with no wins all season in their league campaign. Despite the separation of all 8 places in the league however National High gave their all and eventually went down to what was their 5th defeat by a single goal.
In U16A/B, B division champions Santa Laurensia made it another bad day for JIS Dragons when they exited the unbeaten A league joint leaders in a 2-1 encounter thanks to goals from Geraldo and Goldan either side of half-time. The single reply form S.Cole was not enough and Santa Laurensia go through to meet BIS Red in the final who beat the unbeaten Jakarta International Korean School by 2 goals to nil.
In the U12B Coca-Cola league campaign Lycees Francais confirmed their 4th spot by beating Lebas School 2-1 with goals from Wisono and Alex. Yusuf scored for Lebas who are on 5 points with one game still to play.
The league ticker now reads 925 games played and 4,942 goals scored. We will not quite make 1,000 matches for the season but there is every chance to reach 5,000 goals and another league record.
All Greenfields Cup and Coca-Cola League awards will be made at The British International School on May 31st. Block your date for this mammoth event and watch-out for league announcements of your participation and attendance on the day.

0811836172 students with the sole aim to organize and deliver quality inter-schools association football in the Jakarta area. The JSFA or ‘Coca-Cola’ League as it has become known due to the continued involvement of Coca-Cola as lead sponsor from that time, has grown from 6 schools and 12 teams in 1995 to what it is today as perhaps one of the largest schools football competitions in the world with 210 teams from 65 schools fielding a total of 3,500 students over 4 playing months between January and April every year.
The 2014 Season will see the League organize and manage close to 1000 matches for students between the ages of 7 to 18 years old operating over 11 different venues, mostly host schools, as detailed in the venues section of this website.
The League is totally non-profit making and raises its operating cost requirements from its major supporting sponsors Coca-Cola and Greenfields Milk, who support The Greenfields Challenge Cup competition in which all teams in the various age categories participate plus annual subscription fees. All monies raised by the League are spent on venues, trophies, referees, Gala Day events and media.
The Leagues finances are managed exclusively within the British International School Foundation that is the legal entity within which the JSFA is housed and who control all receipts and payments on the League’s behalf.
FOOTBALL FOR LIFE
The ‘Football for Life’ campaign seeks to deliver an outreach programme to children in need in Jakarta. The League has always coordinated and encouraged charity teams to participate in the League targeted at children from orphanages and street kids who are organized under the auspices of The British International School Community Action Service programme and participating Students.
The Football For Life initiative however is an extension of this important role and seeks to embrace a wider cross section of children in need in Jakarta through financial support and the active participation by JSFA members in assisting worthy child related causes. The ‘FFL’ campaign raises independent funds via various fund raising initiatives to enable this to happen.
Full details are available under the ‘FFL’ banner on this site or by contacting any member of the main committee.
The JSFA main committee is always looking for additional members to participate in what is a positive and exciting experience for all concerned. Should you wish to support the objective of the League, please feel free to contact us at any time.
