Early Horror Show Scares Blacks

With their return to conclude the final two league games of the season on the horizon, Hilderinc FC could not have expected a more curious final preparation game as they came away more relieved not to be at the end of an inexcusable hiding.


While such games are meant to formulate readiness for more competitive action, their shocking start, one of the worst in recent times, was incredibly dreadful, quite incomparable even for a side who has had some of the awful results the few months.


Finding no justification in the fact that many of the starters were still bedding themselves into the new setting, the Hilderincs were far from anything resemblance of a league side, playing against a social team.


Tripping and floundering over the basic, it was a surprise that they were not punished in the opening minutes, something that was sure to have transpired easily on any other day.


Surviving the initial scandalous deficiencies, the Blacks responded enough to adjustments made during the play, and progressively gained composure as the minutes got on, but had to wait until the first water break in an agonisingly sizzling day to make meaningful in roads to be productive.


Still laboured and inept, the Hilderincs had to wait until the half time break to arouse themselves to demonstrate what they can do when they are focused and be simplified with their football as they looked themselves for the first time in the tie.


However, a momentary lapse put them on the backfoot when FC Canto scored very much against the run of play.


The Hilderincs’ reaction was commendable as they responded with intensity and purpose, and come close to drawing parity with several opportunities, but most of which came close without the desired outcome.


It took the Blacks until after the final quarter to draw level when the scored through Mohd Erzan immediately after the final alternations were made.


They could have go on to win with couple more chances towards the end, but were unfortunate to see efforts drift wide of the post yet again as they settled for a lucky draw.


The Hilderincs will be greeted with at least a hundredfold intensity in the ESPZEN Saturday Division 1 next week, against an opponent who would be waiting to hand out another whacking after they decided against a walkover win instead to offer a postponement, and if the Blacks were any similar to how they turn up today, they will indeed be at the end of another unwanted record defeat.
