2008 SJC Girls' Futsal_ 20.07.08

Our 2008 SJC Girls' Futsal League Round 4 games were played today from 2.00 pm to 5.00 pm at HTO de Futsal. It was a day of upsets as the teams met for the second time.

Major Division
Amber 2 _ Turquoise 0
Citrine 1 _ Emerald 1
In the first game, Turquoise managed to hold on without conceding a goal to the division leaders Amber for the first two quarters. However in the second half, Amber managed to score two goals despite a gallant effort by Turquoise. In the second match, Citrine and Emerald's match ended in a draw of one goal each when Citrine managed to score in the last quarter.

With the win over Turquoise, Amber remain unbeaten with four wins to top the table. Emerald lost ground to keep up with Amber with the draw but managed to retain second spot followed by Citrine and Turquoise.

Senior Division

Sapphire 0 _ Opal 0
Garnet 5 _ Jade 4

Opal and Sapphire only managed a goalless draw with very few chances in front of the goal. However in the second game, it was goals galore between Garnet and Jade. Garnet managed to hang on by surviving a late onslaught by Jade looking for their equalising goal. At the final whistle, Garnet's players were jubilant by winning their first game of the tourney against the division leaders.
Jade still leads the table, despite their loss, with seven points. Sapphire's draw with Opal meant that they could not take advantage of Jade's slip up and remain second with six points, followed closely by Opal with five points and Garnet with three points.

Topaz continued their first win last week with a closely fought win over Ruby by two to one goal. In the second match, Diamond demolished Amethyst by six to one goal. Amethyst scored early in the first quarter but could not keep up with Diamond's pace and relentless attack.
Diamond remain unbeaten and leads the table with twelve points followed by Ruby and Topaz with six points each. Amethyst is still looking for the first win and remain fourth in the table.
