Sunday, October 7
I played a few games too. I'm not very good but I did have a good time.
I joined in too in the second half. I played GK & nobody could score against me with my height, speed, strength & my long strong arms. hahaha~~
After the games, the teachers from SMK Song went to bathe in the river. Apparently, they encountered a gigantic swarm of bees at the riverbed which forced all of them into the water. It was like a giant black ball of buzzing death. Some of them still had their cellphones in their pockets.
Our team trained for 1 month before this game. We played weekly friendlies with the students & had futsal games every day.
I played for 75 min in the 90 min game. I played mostly in the right back position.
Earlier on we were very defensive as the other team tried to break us again & again to no avail. Then, we started scoring. Before we knew it, it was 2-0 after the first half. As our opponent grew tired, we became bolder & started to push up higher. In the end, we won the game 4-1.
I love playing full field football; much more than futsal. However, as I age, I find fewer & fewer friends willing to exert themselves this way. They're either getting fatter or lazier or hindered by injuries. I really cherish rare moments like these.
We're having another friendly on the 17 of October. This time it will be in Song on their home turf.
I wonder how we will do. It's in 2 weeks & we haven't started training yet.
I hope we'll do well. I'm probably going to organise a game this afternoon. Hopefully, it doesn't rain.
Meanwhile, check out all the pictures here on my FB Page.
