Kamikaze Youths vs Mixed Reds
Friendly @ Henderson Secondary
Match Report By Pratip Kumar
Kamikaze Jrs enjoyed a comprehensive victory on Saturday. The team started with a positive mindset and wanted to win the match in style, which they did.
The first half was all Kamikaze as they kept asking questions of the opponents' defence. However, with the opponents running tirelessly and their keeper being in scintillating form, the game was kept 0-0 at half-time.
It looked like it needed something magical to break the deadlock, and when the goal came, it did come in some incredible fashion. Vishnu proved his capability by scoring an Ibrahimovic-style half-volley from 30-yards out which looped over the helpless keeper, who till that point was having a blinder of a game. Once the goal went in, the floodgates opened.
Second goal came via a setpiece with Vinnie turning provider. From a outswinging corner, Vinnie headed the ball back into the 6-yard box for Hasiim to head it in to the back of the net. Just when it was starting to look like a comfortable match, a defensive mix-up saw the opponents pulling one back with the striker through on an open goal.
The Juniors however showed good composure and continued their good passing movements which paid dividends as they went on to score one more. After an excellent team play, Victor squared the ball back for Hasiim who calmly sidefooted it into the goal.
The opponents, however, refused to give up and another mix up, this time between Saai and the Keeper Pratip, saw the striker easily gaining possession and looping the ball into an empty net.
Just when it looked like a melt-down was on the cards, Jo, who had an awesome shift, combined with another new player Visnu V2, who had an absolutely outstanding afternoon. Their 1-2 passing movement saw Jo being put through with an exquisite ball by Visnu V2, and he made no mistake with a clinical finish.
The final score ended 4-2 and there were many positives to be taken by the team. Visnu V2 showed great potential, while Joseph, Arjun and Hasiim showed their class in midfield. With Vinnie, Prabhu and Vishnu showing good predatory instincts, the team is looking to be in fine form. However, they have to sort out their occasional defensive slip-ups to look as genuine title contenders.
In the Press Conference, the Team Managers Victor and Neshsta announced, that the team would be joining a new league soon, details of which would be revealed in the coming days.
