The Comeback Kings

Kamikaze staged a remarkable comeback literally through the last kick of the game. Dinesh Thevar scored the winning goal after going down 3-0 with 1 men seeing red. Match started as accordingly to plan by Manager Haresh. Kamikaze were fully focused on attacking as Zhenghua knights we soaking up the pressure. However, Zhenghua knights drew the first blood through a deadly counter attack. Kamikaze were not disheartened by that and continued attacking like that did in the beginning. And again the defence was caught out through another counter attack. Kamikaze went into the break with 2-0. Second half saw Kamikaze start brightly. Shortly in the half, Zhenghua knights scored a third through a free kick which was finished by a header. Zhenghua Knights thought they had Kamikaze buried. And once Pratheep saw a red card for a misinterpreted "gun" action, Zhenghua Knights must have confirmed that feeling. They packed 9 men in their defence forcing Kamikaze literally no way to push for goal. The ever lively Haresh was the man to spark the comeback. A cooly taken volley in the penalty box was exactly what the team needed. Second goal came in 13 mins from time. A wonderful cross saw matthew literally push the ball into the net. Before that goal, Dinesh tried for a extravagant finish but only could see the effort hit the post. Third goal was a mistake within the Zhenghua knights defence that caused an own goal. With literally 2 mins left in time, the hero to grab Kamikaze the 3 important points was Dinesh. After a mix-up between the Zhenghua Knights defence, Dinesh collected the ball controlled with and blasted it into the top. The keeper was shell shocked, Zhenghua Knights were shell shocked. Truly a remarkable comeback in the history of Kamikaze young boys. Next game will see Kamikaze take on Toh Guan 11. Be sure to be there to catch this game.
