In the younger U13 Girls competition things are hotting-up nicely as JGS Leopards and Deutche International School fight it out neck and neck with identical playing records of 4 wins from 5. Leopards downed a plucky Global Jaya side on Saturday and have still only conceded one goal all season whilst scoring 28. DIS however dropped a vital point when being held to a 1-1 draw by JGS Dragons who move into third place. However, all 3 teams need to look out for unbeaten BSJ who have 9 points from 3 matches and are falling behind in the playing schedule in 4th.
The first league title was all but secured on Saturday, in U10A, when the marauding and all conquering BSJ Red beat added 6 to this years’ tally of 47 goals when dispatching old rivals Dragons PIE. They are now 9 points clear of the field and for all intents and purposes impossible to catch.

At the BSJ venue, in U14 A/B, Ibnu Sina eventually overcame a stalwart Santa Laurensia School 3-2 after drawing 3-3 in regulation time as did Dragons B over Cita Buana in the same competition.
Bunda Mulia scored all 5 in their shoot out to put out Binus Simprug, and in U16 Tunas Muda outed ACS both from U16B. In the U10 C/F competition William Hade scored all 3 goals for Seek. Cita Buana in their 3-2 wins over ACS and was the hero of the day by moving his team into Round 2. And in the All Girls competition it was a good day for Global Jaya with wins over ACS in the Open Girls competition and a nail-biting 4-3 victory over Madania.

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 competitions targeted at children from orphanages and street kids who are organized under the auspices of The British 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.
