After last Wednesday’s no show by Any Holes A Goal Club de Futbol, an ostentatiously name opponent, which handed them a muffled 3-0 win and three points, Hilderinc FC finally got their ESPZEN Midweek 7s league going with a well contested tie against Bayern de Monique at the Arena.
Despite having taken advantage of the circumstances when both the sides played an impromptu friendly, the official league fixture was played in no less competitive nature as it was a week ago.
However, the day before a long weekend added to the Blacks’ recent trend of unabated supplication for numbers, and with nine on the night, the two substitutes were more critical rather than options.
With the league still in its infancy and development, the size of the pitch was a key factor of discomfort for a 7s games.
The Hilderincs starting with Lim Yong Kiat, Kavin Singh, Sunny Tharidu, Nabil Zahrif, Travis Fujji, Ian Morris, and Jeevan, the Club’s first president, who made a welcomed return to the colours, were exceptional against a good side, as Omar Mahnin and the Hilderinc Twā’s, Aldrin Julio provided the needed quality.
Pressing high and keeping constant intensity throughout, with a solid backline, the Blacks took the game to the French, who started their campaign with an 11-2 in their opening game.
Though the Hilderincs went a goal behind, an excellent Omar Mahnin strike restored parity in a tightly contested half, which had both teams equally matched.
However, with only two replacements, the second half took the toll on the Blacks, especially after their exertions in the early period.
Allowing the Moniques more time and space, the Hilderincs’ earlier watertight backline was breeched, though the magnificent Lim Yong Kiat was on handed with incredible saves to keep the scoreline respectable in the almost claustrophobic playing area, though Kavin Singh was unfortunate not add his name to the scoresheet with a number of long range attempts.
With the Hilderincs’ primary objective of using the 7s to provide training minutes in benefit of their Saturday and Sunday league sides, it was a highly productive evening, and with each player putting in solid effort in the progress.
