BASS started the match well and got an early corner. Hafiz spotted Majdi unmarked in the middle of the field and Majdi did a 'Gerrard' when he smashed home a powerful shot past the opponent's goalie for his first goal of the tournament. 1-0 to BASS! Man of the match Hafiz then scored with two well-taken goals to break his scoring duck after failing to score in the first two games. Like what an Oz bloke would say, 'Goodonyamate! (good on you mate!). Chun Sin responded and created some chances but the BASS goalie Zarif made some important saves. Qasman almost gave the opponents a perfect gift when he gave away the ball cheaply in the middle of the field but luckily the opponent's striker shot wide. Yamin and Asqa then completed the rout to give BASS a 5-0 lead going into halftime.
The second half was a messy affair for BASS and the opponent controlled the game for most of the time. It was a nervy moment for BASS and their supporters when the opponent hit the post three times in quick successions. Abu, who was having a quiet game made some good clearances. On the sidelines, the supporters duo, Aimi and Ka Suhara became part time coaches and cheerleaders. BASS had their fair share of good chances but Fadhli and Hafiz were guilty of failing to capitalise on any of the chances. BASS held on and the scoreline remains 5-0 until the final whistle.

All in all, it was a good game for BASS. It was disappointing not to score in the second half but at the end of the day, it's the win that matters. Next up for BASS will be a match against SSA on Friday, 1st May 2009 at 3:30pm. Hopefully, more BASSers will show up in the next match. *ehem ehem*
Gaya mau tau, main mau tau! =D
