Persistence Reaps Rewards For Russla's Hustlers


Arena Futsal League S1 Jul 19, 2018

Russla's Hustlers contemplated forfeiting their match 3 hours before kickoff as they were struggling to get a team together. However, they pulled through to get just about 5 players to play against a Lost Boys team that had 7 players but missing many of their quality players. Russla's decision not to concede a walkover was vindicated as Sebastian got a double hat-trick, their top scorer and captain James Lord scored twice and new signing Sola got one. Lost Boys goals were scored by their new signing Syazwan twice and Ashton. Russla's produced a commanding and dominating performance and thoroughly deserved the 9-3 win to bounce back in style from their heavy defeat last week. Bone Soup played against Marriedman in a game that started with laughs and jokes before kickoff between the teams but there was nothing friendly about it when the game kicked off. Bone Soup had taken a 2-0 lead into the half-time break through their captain Raymond but Marriedman pulled one back at the start of the second half through their new signing Fardly which kept the edge in the game but 2 more goals by Raymond and a goal each by Jason and Johnson took the edge out of the game as Marriedman ran out of steam and lost 6-1. In the final match of the night, Red Indians and Balotelitubbies were level at 4-4, Balotelitubbies were unable to hold on to their lead and each time they took their lead, Red Indians equalised but it changed at the point of 4-4. Balotelutubbies scored 6 more as Red Indians ran out of steam and won 10-4. Balotelitubbies had their young attacking duo of Jason and Lee to thank as each player got a hat-trick each.
