GUFC invites St Gabriel’s Secondary for S-League Curtain Raiser!
By Eagles Admin on 7 September 2012
On the evening before our S-League team is poised to face the Jaguars in a sizzling clash, our very own U-14 team has done the club proud by beating zonal champions St Gabriel’s Secondary School 3-1 in an equally entertaining friendly!
Khuzairee, Faris and Geordan provided the goals for the Eagles in the empathic win.
Coach Sugunan, the U-14 Coach, said after the game, “I feel it’s a very good exposure for the boys, playing at Bedok Stadium. Although the atmosphere couldn’t compare to the S-League match itself, I’m sure the boys will remember this day for the rest of their lives. It’s not every day that one can play at Bedok Stadium!”
“Regarding the boys performance, I must say that it’s very promising. I’m really proud with each and every one of them.”
After the game, both the students and their parents are invited to watch the S-League game against Tanjong Pagar and the kids were also provided dinner and refreshments. At half time, there was a juggling competition between 2 of the GUFC U-14 boys and 2 of the St Gabriel’s Secondary School boys! The winner will walk away with a 320gb white PlayStation 3!
Shukrie and Khuzairee represented GUFC and Brandon and Fazrin represented St Gabriels. Fazrin was the ultimate winner of the PS3 after he managed to juggling a whopping 27 times edging out fellow schoolmate Brandon who was also impressive himself, juggling the ball for 23 times.
The S-League match against the Jaguars was a closely contested affair with both sides going home with a point after the match ended 0-0. The Eagles were unlucky not to go claim victory after a much improved second half saw the team presented with numerous chances in-front of goal. The absence of Stefan Milojevic, who was nursing an ankle injury, was sorely felt.
On the other hand, the Jaguars also nearly came off with a victory after referee Lewo Thiam Hoe awarded a penalty late in the first half. However, Yazid Yasin did well to save from Gilbert Bayonne after diving to his left.
