The Cage Sports Park Pitch 2

Singapore Vikings Football Club 8 vs 4 Spanish World FC




A strongly anticipated top clash in the league between first and second with Spanish having had the luxury of getting the points dropped against RockU recovered. First 5 minutes of the game and the Spanish showed some good skills and playing it well around - however with probably the first viking attack of the game an overlap from Tomas down the right, square to Casper T - who scored his first goal in ages 1-0.  Vikings quickly made it 2 and 3 from similar type of counter attacks and with Meli looking sharp in front of the goal. Spanish called for offside on all 3 goals, but I honestly think the ref got all of them right and for each one there will be someone in spanish defense who should probably raise the arm and admit to playing the vikings onside.  In any case, Spanish played some great football and only goal line clearnances from Dr Frandsen and Rafa kept the score at bay, and while it was painfully close for the spanish, the viking somehow managed to convert every chance and it was 6-0 at around the 30 minute mark. The 5th or 6th should have been disallowed as it did seem to hit Meli on the arm prior the run towards the keeper. Spanish were awarded a semi-soft penalty and Kike converted neatly. It was 7-1 at halftime. A red card shown during half time, did not have any effect on numbers - thus it was still 11 vs 11 going in to second half.  Second half was a scrappy affair with some fisty encounters - a couple of frustration red cards for the spanish towards the end, did not matter much. Vikings stopped converting big chances and as the game looked set to finish 7-1 there was a flurry of defensive blunders in the last 10 and instead the score was 8-4.  Playing the spanish remains one of our favority fixtures and we are already now looking forward to the next one. To be honest at 3-0 up we still felt that if the spanish had kept the focus on playing football, they could easily have clawed their way back in. Once again - refereed looked to get the first calls right. All the best to Spanish for the remainder of the season, still very much in your hands.  Vikings MOM went to Meli for 6 well taken goals and while it was 100% conversion in the first half, the crowd were asking for two or three more second half. Next week we will play a friendly and then we are facing 3rd placed SFC in two weeks time. Rafa    

It could be a much attractive game if the referee would had been better. Even so, Vikings played a good game deserving the victory against an out of context Spanish World, who were harmed by the referee clearly from the first minute. Goals: Dani Padrón 3 Kike 1 MOM Dani Padrón
