2nd Consecutive Draw dents Kamikaze title Hopes

19th Oct 2014
5pm Mayflower Secondary

The previous time these two teams met each other it ended up as a 3-1 victory for the Samurais, but it was far from a comfortable win as Genesis kept asking questions with their direct Route 1 football. KKZ went into this match knowing that the long balls will be a problem, but the first 20 minutes of the match put all those worries to bed as they were up 2-0 thanks to a brilliant free-kick from Doctor and a well-headed goal by Jefri Abraham.

However, things went downhill from there as the long-ball tactics from Genesis found the KKZ defence unable to cope with the threat. With the score at 2-2, it looked like they were going into half-time on level terms, when Hevy stepped up to score a brilliant effort to give KKZ the slim advantage.

Yet, being boldened by the success of their direct route, Genesis kept pumping the long balls and found success as they gained an equaliser. Just when the points were looking to be split, Nelson made a great counter pay off as he chipped the Genesis keeper and looked to seal all 3 points. Calamity then struck in the dying seconds as Kamikaze's inability to deal with the incoming corners saw them concede a late equaliser and faced a drawn result that felt like a defeat. With their second consecutive draw, Kamikaze saw themselves drop to 4th place, but with games in hand they still own the aces in their pockets and will approach the subsequent matches with a renewed vigour.
