An Epic Battle

I am not exaggerating when I say it was a battle of epic proportion. Our boys played with their hearts. We gave them HELL!

Ugyen Academy's UA FC is good. Their skills are the envy of every football lover. They have eight junior national players and it is a joy to watch them on the pitch. Their play is like watching a beautiful waltz.

As always they dominated the game right from the start. In the first fifth minute they took the lead when they swiftly broke our defense. From then on it was a total defensive game on our part. It seemed the strategy our boys set their hearts on was not to conceive more goals, winning was never our objective. 

The defensive strategy held and blocked over forty strikes.  In the second half the game-face changed as our boys decided to go on the offense. It was sheer luck and the UA FC keeper's over confidence that the ball slipped and our striker made the best of the error. The score was equalized. 

Then there was hand ball in our D box and our hopes sank. A clumsy defending from our side defender, BUT our keeper saved our hopes and we continued shouting for our boys. It was then that they started to panic. Their coach, the famous Yongkom started cursing from his box, as always. Their play lost most of the former flow and glory. Our boys were on th
e offense. Our boys who practiced for only two days before the match were making UA FC nervous. For the first time in the tournament they couldn't have the play their way. They met with an opponent who deserved respect.


Into extra time the ball rolled. We hoped for a penalty shootout because our keeper was good but it didn't happen as there was another penalty given when their striker was brought down by two of our defenders. This happened in the last dying minutes of the extra time's second half. A penalty that silenced us. 

But all said, I was happy that they won, they work hard and have a reputation to save unlike us who pick players today when the tournament is tomorrow. Had they lost, it would have pained them a lot. They had more to lose than us. We lost and earned their respect.

  1. Had a great game it seems. Thanks for sharing, Nobu sir. Yeah I know how good UA FC is. I saw them once playing in the national coco-cola league in the Changlimithang stadium. Your boys would have had to play really well against an opponent like them to maintain that close margin of scoreline. :)

  20. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
