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.
