5v5 Indoor Soccer Challenge

For the second year, Contact Sports organized its’ 5v5 Indoor Soccer Challenge with the aim to promote the sport in the region of Penang. This year, we saw participation of 10 teams for the challenge held on 26 May 2007 at the Indoor Premier League, Gembira Parade. We were gald to have 5 teams which participated last year and were back in action again this year. They are Inti A & B, Legend Killer FC, Sri Pelita Tigers and One United FC. This time they came back with more force and substance to make it to the finals, and ultimately to take home the gold medals. The teams were divided into two groups through drawing of lots. Preliminary matches were played simultaneously with the top 2 teams from each group moving on to semi-finals. Every match was intense since the preliminary as every team determined to stay on top. One can see true colors of each person through the game. A slight commotion happened during one of the semi-final match. An unsporting behavior and crude language by the player resulted in getting him a yellow card. Overall, it was truly a challenging ‘Challenge’. The Challenge was won by Gelugor Football Club (GFC), followed by SPG FC and Inti A. Prizes courtesy of Indoor Premier League, Fuji and Yeos.
