Report On 7-A-Side Game: 2 May 2009

Our team that faced Dennis W’s team (Blues) this afternoon were: Jye, Sushil, Azmi, Yuchi, Nick, Edardy, Alan.

Blues took an early lead, but two well worked goals from Sushil and Nick put us 2-1 up after about 15 minutes.

We defended well as we held on to the lead until about the half hour mark, with Jye making several good saves while in goal.

As in the first game at the end of March 2009, Blues moved and passed well, but we chased and harried when they had possession, and looked dangerous on the break.

Blues better movement and passing finally told, especially as we tired, and 3 goals within 15 minutes saw Blues 4-2 up after 45 minutes.

We then had our best spell as we found our second wind, going close on several occasions.  Edardy finally put away another well worked goal to pull the score back t0 3-4.

Final score:  4-3 to Blues.

    great game, great side… until we got tired and lost concentration defence was brilliant.
    they had us running around a lot with well made two touch passing, but when it came to 50 50 balls we were first to them almost every time. dont know about you but i think with a little more discipline and more acurate passing from us we can beat these guys….

      They’d be interested in another match. Not so soon, but in a month or two’s time.

    We’d win if there’s an offside rule.. haha. But they played good passing game and have better stamina. I too think we can beat them if we are more organized.

    We were short of playing a 4-4 Classic,
    if only Nick and Sushil converted a goal more.

    Great Effort from all of us, with Ed being my Man of the Match for all the running and shouting.

    Great Game, and We should Beat Dennis’s team the next time we meet.

    hey guys! great game! I enjoyed myself. We were not too bad at all! I was very happy. Just that the first half of the game, no one was taking responsibility in the middle and they had two or three players running in the middle and totally messing us up. But we learnt fast, the second half we did well covering the middle portion with sushil dropping in deep. Nick ran like our lives depended on it. We also started passing better with more clever runs. Our defence was tops with Yuchi and Alan so vigourous and Jye was OH MY GOD! rock solid. And i did enjoy my goal, if i can say so myself! hahaha Thanks guys.
