Centaurs Turf City Pitch

1 Tanah Merah Football Club 1 vs 4 Singapore Vikings Football Club




First game of the new season agains a newly promotoed side, and i this is the standard of the league this year then we will be in for a great season.  I could talk about some errors on our side, or porr referee decisions, but the Vikings were simply superb in the first half and we couldn't deal with them. They were 3-0 up at the break and played some superb football with outtanding performances all over the pitch.  Fortnuately for us, we improved significantly after the break and it was a much more even game.  Remi gave us hope early in the second half, and has Raver converted a presentable chance from a corner, we may have got something out the game.  In the end, Vikings hit us on the break with a late fourth to wrap up a deserved victory.  No complaints from us, and we are looking forward to the re-match next year.  MOTM: Fraser; Kit haidhar

  Another big test in first division for Vikings playing title candidates 1TM who lined up with a mouth watering strike force of quality players from 3 of the top Cosmo teams. Vikings themselves lined up with a strong squad, and a starting 11 that for the first time - in an official match - in 18 months included Maestro Domino. Alongside his fellow central midfielders Rune and Casper T, Domino and the Vikings quickly took charge of the game and with with great flow in the game we looked dangerous going forward from the start. Especially down the right where Andreas from fullback came around Buck again and again to create chance after chance. After 12-15 minutes Vikings were already 2-0 up, and especially the first goal was of class after 4/5 players in involved in the build up before Meli smashed it in. After this 1TM started to threaten more going forward, but solid defending by an experienced Vikings back line kept 1TM from big chances and Tommie in goal did well when called upon. As the game evened out and half time drawing closer, Vikings started a freekick early and after a few passes, Kasper found Meli with space in the box, The Czech striker neatly chipped the keeper and 3-0....halftime. A host of changes in halftime and vikings lost some of the flow from the first half, however substitute T-bear down the left managed to create goal scoring chances with his first 4 touches and it could easily have been a goal and an assist for the lethal Norwegian. Instead of increasing the lead - it was instead the 1TM who pulled one back after a Goalkeeper Tommie misjudged a weak kick from Remi. In the minutes following the goal 1TM played with some more spark and luckilly for Vikings Tommie redeemed himself with a great save of a dangerous freekick. As 1TM piled more players forward Vikings looked dangerous on the counter attack and after a couple of missed chances, the 4-1 goal came from a strong counterattack seeing Vikings 3 vs1 and well assisted by Meli, Andreas sealed the deal with a cool chip over the keeper. Great performance from the entire team - special mention to centre back pairing Henrik T and Tomas, The first half midfield trio with Doms, Rune and Casper T, Buck Seng at the tender age of 61 showing the world how simple football can be played, however not much doubt that Man of the Match had to go to the unstoppable Meli for 3 goals and an assist rafa
