Sparks FC 's Match Report
The day did not start off on a positive note as half the team, including both our goalkeepers, did not turn up due to the haze situation. With only one outfield player as our substitute, our captain, Jack, had to stand in as goalkeeper. However, it was obvious that Jack's presence was needed in midfield as the team conceded 4 quick goals with less than a quarter of the match gone. As such, the coach made a tactical switch and had Danish to play in goal. It proved to be an inspired decision as the team managed to regroup and organize itself again by regaining its shape and tactical play. The boys tried to mount a comeback, but the lack of substitutes began to take its toll on the players' physical being and tried as they might, they gradually tired out as the game progressed, allowing our opponent to take the initiative and control proceedings in the game. Nonetheless, the team still managed to keep the defence tight, with Danish playing an outstanding game in goal, and kept the scoreline respectable.
