ESPZEN SS Black 's Match Report

Captain- Ethan Wong

A good start to the season for the ESPZEN Black side. After going 2-0 down in the first half of the game, the boys showed fantastic team unity and spirit to come back to draw the game and they could have even won it towards the end.

Being the first game of the season and having some new additions to the side there were some teething problems in the first half, especially in our defensive organization and team structure. Despite conceding two goals the teams attacking play was very promising at times. We were unfortunate not to register a goal on the scoresheet in the first half as we came close on more than one occasion – most notably hitting the bar.

In the second half I changed the formation and we looked a more fluid team not only in attack but in defence. Our defensive organization improved greatly. Players took on the feedback at half time and executed the second half plan superbly. Just sometimes the final ball or clinical shot was lacking.

As we entered the last 20 minutes of the game the game was still in the balance and the next goal would prove to be crucial. Thankfully ESPZEN Black got it. A free kick spilt by the goalkeeper fell to Omar who reacted quickly to make it 2-1. The team then piled on the pressure and through another free kick got an equalizer. This time the free kick was struck into the melee of players in the box and the ball ricocheted to Herdy in the box who smashed the ball in with his left foot past the despairing goalkeeper to earn the side a valuable point.

Overall there were many positives and a lot to build on. As a coach I learned a lot from this game and as the game progressed the team got stronger. The change in formation certainly helped and some of the new players performed well, especially Hidir who kept driving and forcing the opposition on the back foot. Good start to the season!
