Business School and Arts and Sciences Team Wins Soccer Championship Match by Narrow Margin

With the semester coming to an end, the final AUB soccer match of the year began, with the Business School and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences facing off against the School of Engineering. Close to forty fans came out to the International College field on the late afternoon of May 23 to watch the event. High above, overlooking the field from the dorm balconies, many more spectators gathered, adding their voices and applause, and brightening the whole scene with the flags of their favorite World Cup teams.

The teams were evenly matched. Engineering, which scored first, celebrated by the players lying on their backs and kicking their feet in the air. The Arts and Sciences and Business team responded with strong effort, making a number of goal shots during the first half of the game. They soon tied the score and then pulled ahead to make the score two to one.

In the second half, Engineering pushed hard, tied the score again, and held it there at two to two throughout the rest of the game-until the final important shoot out. As the star forwards and goalies of each team faced off and made one shot after another, the scores climbed evenly. But then Engineering missed, the match ended, and the faculty of Arts and Science and the Business School team took home the championship with a win of seven over Engineering's six.

Throughout the match, fans cheered the good plays made by both teams, not limiting their enthusiasm to their favorite team. Players on the field, too, gave a helping hand to their fallen opponents. With the international flags flying overhead, the big game was truly a celebration of fine sportsmanship.
