Goal Arena Round 2
Kamikaze vs S.S
Yio Chu Kang Sec @5pm
If they were looking to do away the disappointment of last week's draw and bounce back in style, Kamikaze found no perfect way other than to smash 6 past S.S in an extremely one-sided match.
When the whistle blew to signal the kickoff, few would have predicted the rout, as a 10 man S.S kept KKZ at bay and even had a few half chances their way. But in just under 7 minutes, Yasin struck yet again to give KKZ an early lead following some neat footwork from Safar. Safar was one of several players making his Goal Arena league debut for Kamikaze, and he put in a dazzling show to remember. Within 13 minutes, Kamikaze doubled their lead after yet another dazzling run from Safar led to an own-goal as the S.S defender turned his cross into the net.
Halfway through the half, the match was as good as over, as Hevy played in a teasing cross, that Lavanesh, another league debutant, supremely volleyed into the top-right corner for what was arguably the best corner of the day.
That sparked a raft of substitutions, that heaped more misery onto S.S, as one of the substitutes Vijay, another player making his debut, found it almost too easy to link up with Safar. The pair accounted for the next 2 KKZ goals, as Safar remained provided, whilst Vijay did the role of the finisher, to put KKZ up 5-0.
With such a commanding lead, the team took it easy after the break, and concentrated on giving the huge squad ample playing time. That strategy almost backfired, as KKZ conceded a soft consolation goal. However, no harm was done, as Hari, had the final say by scoring his first Goal Arena league goal with a neat finish curled round the keeper.
Kamikaze came out of this match with a high morale. Nonetheless, questions remained. Will the team, improve their passing play to handle tougher opponents. Will the defence remain steady against pacier strikers? Will the management handle the substitutions more effectively? Most importantly, Are Kamikaze Title-contenders??? Watch this space!
