Junior World of Floorball Challenge

A half day competition called the "Junior 3-on-3 World of Floorball Challenge" was organised and held in Dalat International School today. There were altogether 8 junior teams; of which 5 were from Dalat (Jets, Justice League, Fire, Eaglets & Tripod), 2 from the Innebandy! Co. club (Innebandy I & II) and 1 representing Team Contact (Contact Juniorz with Bryan Looi, Nicholas Yeoh and Calvin Tan). Contact Juniorz had a slow and shakey start for their 1st game against Jets; which they marginally lost by 0-1 with some tough defending by the team. After some minor changes in positions, Contact Juniorz came back with a vengence in their 2nd game against a rather tired and subdued Justice League. Contact Juniorz won the game 6-0; in which Bryan scored 4 goals and Nicholas 2 goals. The 3rd game against Fire was basically a must win situation in order for Contact Juniorz to progress to the semi-finals stage of the competition. Although trailing early in the game by 1 goal, Contact Juniorz held their round, persevered and came back to win the game by 4-1 (3 goals by Bryan and 1 by Nicholas) and earned their spot in the semi-finals. The semi-final game against Eaglets was by far the most exciting game for the team. Contact Juniorz played their hearts out and continued fighting although were found trailing behind. In the end, Contact Juniors lost by 2-4. Bryan and Nicholas scored a goal each. Contact Juniorz's final game to determine either the bronze medal or 4th placing, was against Tripod. Both teams were already rather tired but continued to play a good game. Contact Juniorz opened the scoring with a goal from Nicholas. Tripod then came back with the equaliser mid way through the game. With the bronze medal at stake, Contact Juniorz pressed on and clinched the winner, with another goal by Nicholas. Final score 2-1 to Contact Juniorz and the bronze medal. The final standings, Jets - champion, Eaglets - silver medal and Contact Juniorz - bronze medal.
