KAMIKAZE FC vs Lost Generation
8th Feb 2015
1pm Eastspring Secondary
It was however, not the best of starts, as within 10 minutes the team found themselves trailing by 2 goals, The first was a beautifully simple 4-touch passing move that underscored the class of the opponents. The second however, was an unfortunate own-goal, after Kishen, looking to clear, sliced at a low cross only to see the ball end at the back of the net.
It sparked memories of the team's previous Division 1 experiences and there was a fear of capitulation. However, there was something different about this new-look Kamikaze outfit as there was real character flowing through the team. They refused to give their opponents any more respect that they deserved and took the game to them, pressing them quickly and challenging for every ball. The move paid dividends as by half-time, the scoreline was even thanks to two goals from the talismanic goal-machine Safar both assisted by Doctor.
The team knew that they had a good chance of getting something out of the game, but crucial to that was keeping a clean sheet in the second half. That plan fell awry within 15 minutes of the restart, as the team once again conceded 2 goals, the first a mistake by the goalie and the second due to yet another mesmerising play by Lost Generation.
However, hearts were cruelly broken, as Lost Generation pumped up a long punt down the ground and a mix-up between the defenders and the goalkeeper saw the LG striker poke in with virtually the last kick of the match.
