Arion U8s fought their way to the top spot in JSSL International Soccer 7’s Plate Group   Leave a comment

IMG_2148The JSSL Singapore International Soccer 7’s that took place over the weekend of 11 and 12 May at the Padang brought 80 teams and close to 1,000 young players together in the year’s largest youth football tournament of the continent.

Our U8 team that was included last minute due to the withdrawal of another team surprised everyone to add more silverware to the academy’s trophy cabinet. After playing undefeated in the JSSL Div 2 champtionships 2013, the boys were put through some tough games on Day 1 of the competition and experienced their first defeat in 9 months. Undeterred by the disappointing results, they came back on Day 2 in the Plate group to battle through to the finals. Having lost to the other finalist Assumption FC (Malaysia, Penang)  in the earlier stages, the boys were very determined to make things right this time round. They eventually wore down the tactically superior opponents with hard work and tenacity to win the match 2-0.  Well done team!
