Week 2, game 2!

The U13 boy’s, second football game of the season would demonstrate if the players had taken heed of their coach’s advice after an initial 1-1 draw with another International School. The only perceived area of weakness was the player’s level of self belief! Would this game prove to be the turning point? Could our players produce a performance that is reflective of all their hard work and commitment?

 


The answer is, yes! The team started well with some calculated attacks; the defence looked organised and Plub was our anchor, a fine example of a goalkeeper, standing dominantly between the sticks! Regents took an early lead through Khawklong’s excellent centre forward scavenging effort. The score line remained the same until after the break when a lapse in concentration enabled the visitors to sneak 2 goals, which put them back in contention. The spirit and strength of the Regent’s team shone through. A brace from Ann-Ann; a sublime shot from Captain Tor and a wonder strike from Gain ensured that the team recorded a fine 5-2 win. We must retain such a sense of belief in our remaining games. Tor’s fine leadership promotes, “Every player is a captain; every captain a leader; strong leadership equals direction”!
