Spanish Soccer Club Asia (SSCA) 's Match Report
The boys faced ESPZEN for the first time this season. Having been undefeated all season, ESPZEN started the game brightly and were 3-0 up in the first 6 mins. The boys were shocked and were starting to give up when Jaden brought the ball forward and managed to get a goal back for us. The boys then rallied on and managed to get another goal 5 minutes later and kept pushing on for an equalizer. Having pushed hard in our previous game for an equalizer took a toll on the boys and their fatigue started to show when they pushed up to attack and left spaces in behind. That allowed ESPZEN to get two more goals and regain their 3 goal lead. The boys continued fighting on and created many opportunities but were extremely wasteful in front of goal. We managed to get one back through Felix who had an excellent game and were fighting on but ESPZEN closed the game to make it 6-3 and continue their winning streak. An extremely entertaining game and kudos to the boys for fighting till the end!
