ESPZEN SS Black 's Match Report
Espzen played FC Jepun for the second time of the season, after the first game where we were defeated in the last 2 minutes of the game the boys were itching to put in a performance.
They were tasked with remembering when to pass and when to dribble and to ensure that the player with the ball had options left right and centre. It turned out to be a dissapointing game for the team who never really got going after we scored the first goal through a great individual goal from Jacob! After this FC Jepun took control and Espzen just could not get things going in terms of working together as a team and putting into practice the things they have learnt over the last few weeks. During the debrief the team reflected themselves on what happened, all highlighting that their perfomances were not good enough in comparison to the standards they have set themselves. They said that they needed to improve their communication and teamwork. It was great to see the players taking ownership and reflecting on their own performances. Luca was captain for the day and gave the MOM award to Isaac!
FC Jepun 's Match Report
1st game of the date was against ESPZEN Black organized skillful player. First, ESPZEN aggressively attacked to our goal and got 1st goal on 5 minitues. After that, our player gradyally understood balance of each player's position in the pitch and performed well each other as a team. We eventually got 5 goals from ESPZEN by continous attacking. Individual technic of ESPZEN players should be higher than us. But our players showed to us that good team work and individual effort for victory can overcome skillful team. Sota scored a hat trick and he was man of the match. Taichi, Shohma and Kotaro showed good performance as attacker as well as defender. Yusui and Taichi saved nice shoot by ESPZEN as goal keeper. Their growth will lead our team to stronger team. All player showed their best performance in the game. Great!!
