Purple Monkeys Football Club 3 vs 2 Fighting Cocks Football Club

As the current holders of the FA Cup (But not from last season. The Final from last seasons Cup is yet to be played between PMFC and Racing.  I’m talking about the Cup before that.  2 seasons ago) we went into the match highly motivated in the knowledge that we were in the running of being winners of the FA CUP 3 times in a row (Surely a Singapore Amateur record of sorts).  Our Sat Div1 opponents drew first blood after a mix up at the back.  Within 5 min PMFC responded with a towering header from Mark Korea and a few minutes later Tudor made it 2-1 to the Purples.  3-1 was a sublime effort from Tudor, direct from a free kick approximately 20m away from goal.  For the rest of the match Fighting Cocks lived up to their name, eventually managing to reduce the deficit once more time and setting the final result.  MOM was difficult as a few solid performances (Mark Korea, Sam in defence, Hugo in midfield and Luc in goal).  Tudor however gets it for a pretty energetic performance in the middle of the park, for the thunder**** of a freekick and for making his girlfriend sit through 90min of Singapore Amateur Cup football.   

Despite taking an early lead, we trailed from two set-pieces and one mix-up in midfield. We threw everything in but only managed to get back 1 and ended up 2-3 at final whistle. Commendable spirit for the team, especially in the final 20mins where we fought our socks off. Good luck to PM for their FA journey.
