Sunday Evening At Turf City: 11 October 2009

Sun 11 October 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

We had two games this evening:

  • Our own session on the small pitch.
  • A representative game against Jye’s team on the big pitch.

The line ups for our own session were as follows:

  • Whites: Look Liew, John S, Damian Y, Desmond T, Ian F
  • Reds: Rajiv, Erik, Sunny, John L, Balach, Desmond O

With the extra man, Reds were limited to scoring within the D.  Reds took a 2-0 lead but Whites came back to lead 5-2, before Reds pulled it back to 5-5.

We then found an extra player from the lot waiting to play after us, and continued as a 6-a-side.  Reds scored 3 further goals to win 8-5.

It was a relaxed, enjoyable game.

The representative game was meant to be an 8-a-side, but with both teams missing a player, it proceeded as a 7-a-side.  FIOFAFI’s seven were:  Ron, Rajseran, Azmi, Sushil , Timmy , Dan B, Elvin.  It finished 7-3 to us.  I’ll leave it to those who played to provide more details as comments below.

    It was an excellent match . The opponents had controlled the match well . The Whites were one up before Dan scored for us to make it level . Match went on with many misses not forgetting our little Ron who did well for keeper . But we loss our focus for awhile when we went down 3-1 . We had to change some position and i played last man , with Sushil and Azmi helping out at defends. With some good counter attack , we were back to leve again thanks to Timmy and Dan again with some nice goals . The opponents were dangerous up front but we were faster at counter attack and made it 7-3 . Everyone played well and Elvin did well holding on to their danger man who controls well with the ball .

    Congrats guys .

    Take note that for the next two Sundays we will be having another round of friendly match. Next week against Sushil’s team and following week another rematch of todays game .

    The game was good. They played better than us at times but like a few games that I have encountered, stamina proved a decisive factor especially near the end of the game. While everyone played their part well, man of the match belongs to Dan, without him the result might turn out differently. Even the opponents were impressed.

    A great game indeed, really enjoyed the game. Think both team played really well.We were abit out of position in the begining, and allowed them to take a 3-1 lead. And were more settled after we were level @3-3, thanks to Timmy & Dan. Our players (Elvin, Timmy & Sushil) read the game well, and managed to kept their danger man (no. 20) out of play. Elvin really played his heart out keeping the danger man out of play. Elvin, Raj & Sushil scored an outstanding individual goal each. Raj, Sushil & Azmi were outstanding in defence and suporting the attack. Timmy, Elvin & Dan were coordinating well very in the attack. Dan is really the man of the game, he took most of the chance well into the opposition net… Cheers Guys.
    Looking forward to the rematch in a fortnight.

    Yeah, Ron really kept us in the game by blocking 4-5 shots that I thought were going to be goals for sure.
    Congrats on a game well played to everyone!
