SIS hosts soccer game, Let It Glow


On April 5, SIS hosted a home soccer game against KIS, which was followed by Let It Glow, this year’s homecoming event. 

The boys team lost with a final score of 0-2, despite the team’s steadier play throughout the whole game. In the first half, SIS had the majority of ball possession and far more shots on goal. However, they conceded a goal due to a sharp through pass, followed by another goal in the last minute that resulted in the loss. 

“For me, the result was quite disappointing as it was such a close game,” Alex Nam (11), varsity soccer player, said. “Our strikers had multiple open shots, but the shots unluckily were all directly shot at the goalkeeper. Overall, I think SIS played far better regardless of the result.”

The girls team also lost narrowly by a score of 0-1. Although the girls conceded one goal in the first half, they took the majority of ball possession afterwards and had multiple open chances that were unfortunately defended against. 

“The girls played very well, especially in the last 20 minutes, when we almost scored several times,” Sijeong Bang (10), varsity soccer player, said. “The game was unlucky for us, and I think the team should continue this performance for our next games in the future.”

After the girls team finished their game, the homecoming event began in Tiger Gym 1. To match this year’s theme of “glowing,” HSSC purchased party lights along with glow sticks, finger-lights, and flashing glasses that were provided to participants for free. Let It Glow also provided free food to all participants, including fried chicken, Krispy Kreme donuts, instant noodles, rice burgers, and cold drinks. 

Prior to the event, participants could participate in card games, roulettes, and sing along to requested songs. The planned events for homecoming started with a Blue Note performance, followed by MP3 Club members performing various songs. Afterwards, students and teachers could sing songs of their choice in front of the audience.

“I think the homecoming was a really good way of socializing with everyone,” Doyun Jeong (12), MP3 club performer, said “From the songs, foods, and fun events, I really enjoyed the unique event.”
