The Champions..

Just some photos from the last game to complement Waznah's awesome match report. Thanks Waz! =D Once again, congratulations to the boys for winning the tournament. OLE OLE OLE OLE~ Special credits to our top scorer, Fadhli, and to our awesome goalie, Zarif, who only conceded 5 goals in the tournament. And of course to all the players for the hard work. To the supporters, thank you for coming to the matches and thank you for your endless cheers to lift our spirits up. BASS should make a gathering to celebrate the victory. A barbeque at the end of the month maybe? heheh..


Gaya mau tau, main mau tau!

BASS boys bring it home

BASS being at the top of the MSO tourney table did not stop today's final game against Kampung Utd (I wondered if it was 'kampung' with an 'o' or a 'u') being riveting and erratic. Just before kick-off, BASS supporters were feeling confident, surely the boys would carry on an unbeatable streak and BASS players were looking fit and feisty filling themselves with a source of potassium - bananas. Captain Asqa had his new socks too and fighting a fever.

Kick-off was a little after 4pm and it looked promising. Yamin's first attempt to score came at 23 seconds but Kampung Utd's defences came up and Zarif was put to hard work. Zarif could not save the one that flew right above his head and the score was 1-0 to Kampung Utd just after 4 minutes. After that came a series of attempts by BASS fuelled by frustration and haste across the futsal court to try and level the score. This included Fadhli swivelling on the floor in order to gain control of the ball and another of Majdi's attempt from the mid-line which missed the top of the net. BASS supporters got on their feet and started cheering for the boys in hopes of keeping the boys' spirits high. At this point, even the common man-triangle did not seem to get past Kampung Utd's defence.

Half-time whistle blew and as usual, BASS boys restrategized in their huddle.

The second half was not pleasant to watch from the sidelines. The boys were very verbal, had furrowed brows and movements were antsy-pantsy. Majdi and Hafiz attempted another few shots which had all the power but no proper direction. The boys looked tired but at the eighteenth minute, the sun suddenly shined as Majdi passed the ball to Fadhli and he scored from the right side of the net.

Now, Fadhli can be a name that should be associated with the term 'Man of the Match' as he dribbled the ball passed Kampung Utd's goalie who made the mistake of leaving the goalpost, two minutes later. Too easy man! Too easy. BASS won 2-1.

Comment Fadhli? "Thanks to the supporters who shouted so much that it made us win... Shouted so loud that it made us tuli..."

The boys also got their medals presented by MSO's president, Kokulananda Makentharan. The pictures are somewhere (hey, I just write). Congrats boys!

BASS futsal team in action!

The last game was so awesome that a report by Waznah alone is not enough. No, I'm not here to post any pictures.. Cause I made a video instead! Because a video can speak more than a thousand words....

So click play.....

Director/Editor's Note:

I have come to understand that these players have never really seen a video of them playing futsal.. I've spent quite some time creating this so I hope you guys like it.. Pardon me if any terms are not correct, not that there are many to start with anyway.. The video is not stabilised cause that'll take longer time, so excuse me kalau terlampau begagar, hehe.. And the quality is not up to my expectation so if you want to view it in HD, watch the original file from my Mac :) 

 Keep it up team... To all BASS supporters from afar, this is for you too!

Four goals makes BASS's fourth win

Thirty seconds before the whistle blew to start off the game between our BASS team and Singapore's UNSW SSA, I turned to Norhamizatulbillah (a.k.a Miza) and asked her if we could win today and she said, "Hopefully...Mesti! Mesti menang!"

Apparently, Miza can add being psychic to her CV.

Team midfielder, Majdi first power kick led to a corner kick but we lost out on the first try at a goal. Forty seconds in, Fadhli's attempt at another goal hits the outside of the goalpost. We were close again to a first goal of the match when Hafiz tried again just after a minute. UNSW SSA proved to be on top of their game when they scored in the second minute and they lead by 1-0. Singapore's lead proved to be a wake-up call for our BASS players when they managed to keep the ball in the SSA's corner and although the Singaporeans seem to tower (yes, in height) above the BASS players, Majdi and Hafiz missed out on two other opportunities to score. If you've noticed, our goalie, Zarif did not have much to do in the first half.

During half-time, BASS players took the opportunity to huddle and re-strategize and whatever El Kapitan Asqa said definitely turned things around.

At 14 minutes 29, Hafiz's golden foot chipped the ball passed SSA's goalie and the level of excitement of BASS supporters (Nisah, Laila, Miza, Hadee, Salwa, Kak Suhara, Amal and Aimi) was measured by the surge in noise. Then, 30 seconds later, Majdi scored a goal that can only be comparable to David Beckham's 1996 Premier League goal from the halfway line because that's exactly what he did. BASS was on a roll! A minute later, Fadhli managed to bring the score to 3-1.

SSA's frustration was evident when they fought back but Zarif fought back harder and made terrific saves. But when BASS supporters were on their feet and blocking my view, man-of-the-match Yamin scored the fourth goal and as Stevie Wonder would say, THAT signed, sealed and delivered BASS's fourth victory.

When asking Yamin for a comment: "Ngalih eh..."
Captain Asqa: "In the end, we got what we want". Surely, I thought, all these wins were fruits of labour and lots of practice time? "No, not really."

Signing off,
Waznah Ali
