The Jalan Besar Stadium hosted the match between Geylang International FC and Woodlands Wellington FC on the 23rd of August. The turnout of supporters from both teams was overwhelming, as they showed up proud in their colours.
Promising to be a night of celebration, both teams entered the game with different hopes. This would be Woodland Wellington’s fourth time up against Geylang International, hoping to bring an end to their winless streak against them. Geylang International, who have lost their previous five games, hoped to bring an end to their misery as well.
Woodlands Wellington quickly dominated possession of the ball. Despite Geylang International’s strong defensive tactics, Woodlands Wellington still managed to get through them. With 29 minutes into the first half, Chang Jo Yoon struck the ball sweetly with power and precision into the net. Fighting off Geylang International’s defenders, Chang Jo Yoon made the quick decision to shoot which resulted in their opening goal.
In the second half, Geylang International came back more determined and more focused. Their hard work finally paid off as Jozef Kaplan scored the first goal for Geylang International, 50 minutes into the game. Jozef Kaplan received the ball from a corner kick and headed the ball straight into the net.
Woodlands Wellington was determined to break the deadlock to end their loosing streak against Geylang International. Preying on their opponents weaknesses, the second goal for Woodlands Wellington came from Rosman Sulaiman, seconds before the final whistle sounded. Receiving the ball from Theerawekin Seehawong’s corner kick, Rosman Sulaiman slammed the ball into the net.
“Our young players couldn’t adapt to the field and there were a lot of miss passes which gave the ball away easily,” explained Kanan Vedhamuthu.
