Goal Avalanche Kick-Starts Arena Futsal League
Season 1 of the Arena Futsal league kicked off with an eventful start!
First up was Bone Soup, who nearly missed the start of the match as they arrived from dinner at Cafe Football. Their opponents, the Red Indians, were ready to go.
However, it was Bone Soup who settled into the match swiftly and opened the scoring with a sweet left foot strike from Neo Loh Ping and he went on to grab a 12 min hat-trick. His team-mates also chipped in as Bone Soup surged to a 6-0 lead by half-time. The goal fest continued in the 2nd half as Bone Soup hit a further 10 goals while Moses Jeevan replied w a consolation for Red Indians.
Match no.2 of the night saw Hibernians take on Russla's Hustlers. It was a cautious opening by both sides but chances soon opened up and as the game went on, both teams traded goals back and forth in an exciting, end to end encounter. A hat-trick from James Lord secured the points for the Hustlers to edge out Hibernians.
The final game of the night featured MarriedMen against Lost Boys. MarriedMan were pinging passes all over in the opening exchanges but Lost Boys did well to contain them. However, a bad challenge on his opponent meant Subra saw red and Lost Boys reduced to 4 players. This gave MarriedMan more possession but once again Lost Boys coped well. Surprisingly, it was Lost Boys who got the goals and they went on to run out 5-2 winners on the night.
