LBJB 2011 League Match Eight: Eagles 1-1 Harriers

Eagles lead has been cut down to one point and today they are facing their most toughest opponent, a second placed Harriers. Anything less than a draw will hand the title of league champions to Harriers and for the first time ever I had to change the team tactic. Eagles started the match with a very defensive mindset. We practically have three defenders sitting deep in our own half because we knew Harriers have two speedy attackers. However, in the third quarter something spectacular happened. From out of nothing Ilyas let loose a thunderous volley from his own half straight into the goal of Harriers. Firdaus managed to capture that moment in the video and Ilyas will definitely have something to watch over and over again for the next few years. Harriers responded by doubling their attack and Ilyas again did something that he never had done in the fourth quarter, which is letting in a goal. The match ended 1-1 and frankly I am quite happy with the result. In other match Hawks managed to beat Falcons 1-0.
