December is finally here and the people of Samui are busy preparing for the big day... Monday 11th December will see PYD host SCL in what will be the final SSFL game of 2017. The term "last but not least" is definitely applicable here as the 4 matches of the fixture can have a major impact on the league tables. Although 1st place in the overall school league table cannot be taken away from OIS following this fixture, both teams have potential to move into second place above ISS and many positions can change in each of the division tables:
PYD- Possible Outcomes
U14 Boys - A win for PYD here will tie them in second place with SCL, with equal GD this means that they will likely take official 2nd place thus pushing SCL into 3rd. A draw will provide PYD with their 1st league point but they will remain in third place. A loss will see PYD remain in third provided that their GD does not decrease by 6 or more goals.
U14 Girls - A win here for PYD will move them from 3rd to tied 1st with ISS. To take the official 1st place they will need to increase their GD by 9 or more goals. A draw with SCL will give PYD a total of 4 points which will propel them above OIS and into 2nd place. A loss to SCL will see SCL equal PYD on points and GD will decide on their final position.
U11 Boys - Following this fixture, 2nd place is still out of reach for both PYD and SCL. A win will see PYD secure 3rd place and close the gap on 2nd. A draw will see PYD maintain 2nd place with a better GD than SCL. A loss will see PYD drop into 4th place.
U11 Girls - PYD currently sit in 3rd place, however they are tied with ISS on points and are only below them due to GD. A win here would propel then into 1st place pushing both ISS and SCL down a position. A draw would tie PYD in 1st place
SCL - Possible Outcomes
U14 Boys - SCL currently sit in 2nd place, after their recent loss to OIS,1st place is out of reach, however a win will solidify their position and close the gap on 1st. A loss to PYD will likely see SCL drop to third place based on GD. A draw will keep SCL in second place and will slightly close the gap on 1st.
U14 Girls - After suffering two losses in a row, the SCL girls will be determined to gain some points this time around. A win for the SCL girls will tie them with PYD and OIS in 2nd, unfortunately they will need to score a lot of goals to improve their position on GD. A draw will help the SCL girls to gain some momentum and close the gap on the other teams. A loss will see SCL maintain 4th position.
U11 Boys - Both sides have 0 points in this division so far. A win from SCL will push them into 3rd place. A draw will also give them 1 point, however as PYD have a better GD they will remain in 4th place. A loss will see PYD move ahead of SCL and leave them in 4th position.
U11 Girls - A win here for the SCL girls will see them increase their point count and solidify their first place position. This win would make it impossible for any team to overtake them after only one game. A loss to PYD will see them drop down to 2nd position where they will be 2 points behind 1st place. A draw will see SCL maintain 1st place and increase the lead by 1 point.
What ever the results come the 11th December, we are sure to be in for yet another great display of skill and sportsmanship in what has been a great first term of fixtures in the SSFL.

The results are in from the recent, much anticipated fixture between SCL and OIS. It was a very successful afternoon for OIS who won three of the 4 games, the fourth being a draw. This puts them into first place in the overall school table and cements / improves their position in the respective division tables. SCL did manage to come away with a crucial point from their draw which puts them into third place above PYD (4th) in the overall school table. This and other league positions are likely to change soon as PYD are scheduled to host SCL on Monday 11th December in what will be the last fixture of 2017.
We are fast approaching the 4th SSFL fixture of the year which will see SCL International School host Oonrak International School at Samui United.
Matches will be held in the following order:
Match 1: 14.00 – 14.30 - Oonrak U11 Girls v SCL U11 Girls
Match 2: 14.30 – 15.00 - Oonrak U11 Boys v SCL U11 Boys
Match 3: 15.00 – 15.30 - Oonrak U14 Girls v SCL U14 Girls
Match 4: 15.30 – 16.00 - Oonrak U14 Boys v SCL U14 Boys
OIS Possible Outcomes
U14 Boys - The OIS U14 boys currently have a 3 point lead on SCL at the top of this table. A win or a draw will see them extend this lead, however a loss could see them fall to second place. Currently the GD of SCL is 2 goals greater than OIS So a loss would make it difficult to maintain top position.
U14 Girls - Both OIS and SCL U14 Girls currently sit at the bottom of the table with 0 points. A win for OIS would Tie them in second place with PYD, however they will need to improve their GD by 3 goals to take the official second place spot. A draw will see the girls close the gap on second place and secure their 3 placed position, a loss will see them drop below SCL to 4th position.
U11 Boys - A win here will help OIS to tie ISS at the number 1 spot, however as ISS have a very impressive +12 GD it will take a very special performance for OIS to find themselves in the number 1 spot. A draw will cement their spot above SCL in third place but a loss will see them drop below SCL into fourth place.
U11 Girls - The OIS U11 girls are the only team in this competition yet to register points on the table. If they get the win over SCL it will move their points count level with the three other teams, GD will then be the deciding factor on what position they hold. A draw will also help them to close the gap on PYD and ISS, however the extra point will also raise SCL into a clear 1st position.
SCL Possible Outcomes
U14 Boys - After an impressive 5 - 0 win over ISS, SCL have a strong GD which means a win over OIS will likely push them into 1st place. A draw with OIS will help them to secure second place by widening the gap between 2nd and third by more than 3 points. A loss will not change SCL's position.
U14 Girls - The girls currently sit at 4th place, tied on points with OIS but losing due to GD. A win over OIS will propel them into third place, It is possible for SCL to move into second place here, however they will need to improve their goal difference by +10 (Not impossible!). A draw will see SCL remain in 4th place due to their GD but equal with OIS on points.
U11 Boys - OIS and SCL both have the same GD in this competition, however OIS have three more points. This setup means that a win for SCL will likely place them into second place due to a greater GD. A draw will push them into 3rd place above PYD.
U11 Girls - A win for SCL will give them 6 points and will push them comfortably into 1st place above ISS. A draw will also give SCL a total of 4 points which will propel them into 1st place. A loss will may see them drop to 3rd or 4th place based on their final GD.
Whole school league table
ISS currently sit at the top of the whole school league table, however that could easily change after this fixture.
OIS can move into 1st place by either:
SCL could take 1st place by either:

Details of Match times will be uploaded once they have been confirmed.
The dust has settled following the second thrilling SSFL fixture which, as predicted was a fairly even contest between SCL and ISS. Both SCL and ISS came away from the encounter with 2 league wins with SCL getting the better of ISS in the friendly match that kicked off the event.
SCL took this match with a final score of 3 - 2. This match was a highly competitive and played at a frantic pace. In the end the SCL girls determination and organisation brought them the win in what was a very enjoyable game. This win places SCL second in the league behind ISS on goal difference, however they do have a game in hand over the league leaders.
Tensions were high before this match. ISS had an impressive first game against OIS so their confidence was high, however they were aware that SLC had some highly skilled and equally determined players. After an initial deadlock, ISS eventually took control and the final score was 7 - 1. The ISS U-11 boys have proven that they are strong contenders in this division, however nobody should underestimate the SCL team who have some very talented players and will surely come back even stronger in their next fixture. This win means that ISS keep their position at the top of the league. Second place goes to SCL who have even points and even GD with OIS, they edge them to position 2 due to having scored more goals.
In the U-14s girls division SCL met a very determined and well trained ISS side. The girls of ISS took control early and never let off the pressure. Once the first goal went in for ISS their confidence rose further and they kept on scoring!. In the end the final score was 10 - 1 to ISS. This is a large score line and the girls at ISS deserve their applause, however the SCL girls should take confidence in the fact that they never gave up and were able to get a goal of their own. The SCL girls showed great potential and have a good platform to build upon for their next fixture where as the ISS confidence level will be sky high for their next fixture. This result means that ISS remain top of the league with 6 points. OIS and SCL both have 0 points with OIS claiming second place on goal difference.
In the final game of the fixture an intelligent SCL side scored a dominant 5 - 0 win over the ISS team. Unfortunately for ISS, SCL capitalised on their slow start with a quick goal at the start. After this initial goal, SCL maintained control with crisp passing, vision and good skill when 1 on 1 with defenders. ISS did manage to show their strength at times during the match and their shot count was high, unfortunately most were off target and after an ISS own goal SCL re-took control to finish the game 5 - 0. Credit should be given to both sides who played this game in great spirit and demonstrated great sportsmanship throughout. This victory puts SCL ahead of OIS in 1st place on goal difference. ISS sit at third and will desperately need to gain some points in their next fixture against PYD.
Overall School Competition
With two victories, 19 goals scored and 10 conceded. ISS cemented their position at the top of the whole school league table:
Two victories over ISS place SCL in second place above OIS in third.
Have ISS done enough to keep first place whilst they await their next fixture? They do not play again until February 2nd and will be anxiously keeping track of future fixtures and their position. Before ISS play again, PYD and OIS will play three games and SCL will play 2. The league will surely change a lot by then. Who do you think will be top?
