B Boys Competition Round 2 Game 2

After the postponed game against Christchurch which was still in the balance at 0-0, Marsiling had the chance to take a step forwards towards the semi-finals with a match against Fuchun. In the first half it was quite even but Fuchun managed to take the lead. We equalised soon after with Ahmad scoring his 5th goal of the competition and we took the lead with a great header from Amir.

Unfortunately it was not to be our day and Fuchun fought back strongly and managed to slice through our defence 2 more times to win the game 3-2. Our boys were gutted as they knew they had thrown away a great opportunity.

Although a sad day, I think they can hold their heads up and say that they really tried their best. That is the reality of sports and competition. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, but you always pick yourself up, show resilience and determination, and look forward to the next game.

C Boys Competition Round 1 Game 4

So today was a crucial match against Siling. We had to win in order to have a chance to qualify for the next round. It was a fairly even battle and we had a penalty that was saved by their goalkeeper. In the end we proved to be just a little better and scored 2 goals, with Danial grabbing both of them. There were 2 'man of the match' this time round for their sheer hard work and determination; congratulations Nabil and Irfan!

B Boys - Our First Loss

So we started round 2 of the North Zone competition against a well-drilled Sembawang side who deployed fast wingers and an attack that hinged on their No.10. Despite trying their best the boys conceded 2 goals, one in each half, due to individual errors. Despite this loss, we are still in with a chance to qualify for the final four. We just have to do our part and play with all our hearts and win the next two games.

B Boys Preparing for Round 2

It was made known to us at the last minute that the B Boys second round of games was brought forward to Monday 16th of February. So to prepare for the game we had to organise a last minute training session on Friday afternoon.




C Boys Competition Round 1 Game 3

Its the third game of the competition and our boys played against Bowen Sec. Overall in terms of skill and stamina our players could match them but mentally we were not as strong. From the beginning it seemed our players were overawed by the physical size of our opponents. Although we had better possession in the first half we did not have the cutting edge to finish of our attacks. We were duly punished about 10 minutes before half time when a throw in was allowed to bounce above our defender's heads and their striker scored with a header.

In the second half we made several changes but once again despite matching them in midfield our attack proved ineffective. Bowen then scored when their striker caught our goalkeeper out of position when he tried to rush out to clear away a through-ball in the final minutes. So the game ended with us losing 2-0.

C Boys Competition Round 1 Game 2

Our second game was against Yishun on a hot afternoon. Kick-off was 3pm and within the first 5 minutes of the match, Danial scored an stunning long range shot that beat the keeper and bulged the net. The match was intense but Marsiling had better possession. Around 25 minutes, Sufi dribbled passed not 1, not 2 but 3 defenders and scored into the bottom left corner.
Minutes later, there was a poor clearance by one of our defender that lead to a goal by Yishun. But that didn't disheartened the team and Baqir scored a excellent header from a corner by Danial as the first half ended.

The 2nd half started brightly and Marsiling kept their possesion before Arifeen scored a sublime long range shot into the top corner making it 4-1. Akasyah attempted a free kick but unluckily the ball hit the crossbar; it could have been a spectacular goal.

Azriq was having a better game today, running past defenders and was tripped by the opponent in the penalty box, PENALTY! And subsequently Danial scored it comfortably.  Minutes later, Danial lived up to expectation and completed his hat trick with an amazing free kick, making the score at 6-1. Excellent job Marsiling!

SG50 Hougang Community Soccer Fiesta

Brought some of our boys down to Kovan Sports Hall to take part in this fun event on Saturday, 7th February. It was a penalty shootout competition. Although they did not win any medals, they had a whole load of fun!

C Boys Competition Round 1 Game 1

Our C Boys kicked off their competition today against a tough and well drilled North Vista side. Truth be told we were lucky in many aspects. Our players found it tough going under the hot 3pm sun and the opponent's robust play. On many occasions it was the safe hands and commanding play of our goalkeeper that kept us out of trouble and gave confidence to the rest of the team. With North Vista unable to score despite their pressure, we took the lead shortly before half time via a long range effort by Danial. That deflated our opponents a little and we held firm till half time.

We toughened up mentally in the second half and were able to match the physical play of our opponents, which enabled us to win more balls in the middle of the field. We gave as good as we got and manage to win a corner. Danial delivered a pin-point ball and Baqir powered in a header for our second goal! We then defended resolutely for a 2-0 win.

Overall a good start against a tough opponent.

Man of the match: Isma


Its Not All Blood And Sweat

Enjoying some lighthearted moments during training :)

I wonder what they are all wondering about?
