The Division One Penang Floorball League has just begun and Contact FireAnts being defending champions had to play the first game last Tuesday. It was not something that we wanted knowing that it will take some time for us to get into the league. We had never started strong as a team in all our previous outings. Something that we need to break away from. Besides that, we had to play the favorites to take the championship this year.
Well, as usual the FireAnts took a long time to get into the game. The team even seemed to be getting older as it struggled to play with a much faster team. Within minutes into the game and Ztec opened the score. It was a quick counter attack and from that point on the defense was just lost. Final score 0-7.
Although we knew that this was going to be a tough game and that the chances of winning were very very slim, we also know now that the sluggishness of the team contributed to the big scoreline. The only consolation that the team had was a goal scored by Edward in the second period that was disallowed by the referees as the whistle had gone just before the shot was taken.
Time for FireAnts to get their act together and play their game. Lets look forward to the next game coming on the 25th June. See you all there!
