Goal Arena Round 1
Kamikaze vs Chai Chee CSC
Junyuan Secondary @ 3pm
Kamikaze had the perfect of starts as they went up 1-0 in the opening 15 minutes thanks to a wonder strike by Yasin to finish up a super cross from Havey. Havey who had earlier missed a penalty, latched on to good work from Barathi down the right flank to put in the cross that Yasin brilliantly scissors-kicked into goal. That sparked several attacking moves from KKZ mostly originating from El Fazail and Barathi, who made his long awaited comeback with much pomp. However, they failed to convert any of those chances and that would soon return to haunt them as they only ended the first half with a solitary goal to show.
Throughout the match, KKZ showed their weakness in handling set-pieces. It was through a set-piece where they were eventually punished as Chai Chee pulled a goal back, by a brilliantly worked free-kick. Despite dominating possession for the rest of the half, and creating several gilt-edged chances, failure to finish meant that Kamikaze only has 1 point for all their hard-work in their first league game.
After the match, Acting Manager Seelan shrugged off the draw saying that the team has always been slow starters. He also put his support behind striker Havey and promised that the player will come good. While they might not have been happy with a draw, Kamikaze will not let this setback deter them and will be even more determined and focused for the clash with S.S. Like Seelan said, this will not be 2 points dropped, but 1 hard point earned.
