Subang Rascals cruised to their 5th win of the season after edging Salibandy!Co. easily with an 18-3 scoreline. It proved to be a great recovery after they have suffered their first loss to Gang Bintang. Salibandy!Co. on the other hand, despite their first win against KLIUC Griffins two weeks ago, seems to be out of control over their defence as they were punished hard by many Rascals offensive runs.

1st period:

Rascals without several key players, they started the game with just 8 players but they welcomed Carlos back into the line-up. And Carlos, missed the game against Gang Bintang, was on his top form in this game, scored a hat trick in just 10 minutes with the two tremendous strikes in the 6th minute and the third in the 10th minute; credits also to Dennis as he assisted Carlos’ first goal.

Bing Hock scored
Rascals first goal in just 5 minutes into the period.

Salibandy!Co. played well in this period. They played defensively throughout the period. Goalkeeper, Danush made a remarkable save with his leg from a close-ranged Dennis’ shot during the period which became the highlights of the match.

*Subang Rascals 4-0 Salibandy!Co.*

2nd period:

The 2nd period was a goal-fest.
Subang Rascals had some serious tactical planning during the intermission and it worked perfectly in this period.

It was not long till spectators saw the first goal as Vicky scored a goal following a defensive error by
Salibandy!Co. players. Snake grabbed his first goal of the season as he netted in Rascals’ 6th of the game following an impressive pass by Dennis.

Dennis, who is chasing the players’ list leader, Khalid of Gang Bintang, has made taking over the leadership board as his main objective in this game. As a result, he netted 5 impressive goals in this period and making him the new leader of the leadership board at that point of time.

Connor has been a helping hand in assisting his teammates this period as he assisted both Dennis and Carlos’ goals. Snake and Vicky were the other two who assisted both Dennis’ goals in the 13th and 16th minute.

But, Connor was given a two-minute bench penalty for allegedly hitting the opponent’s stick incorrectly
(code 201).

As the period ended and went into the intermission,
Salibandy!Co. skipper, Ricky Tong must really plan something well in order to stop Rascals from firing more goals and get his team back into the game.

*Subang Rascals 12-0 Salibandy!Co.*

3rd period:

Salibandy!Co. trailed
Rascals 12 goals as they entered the 3rd period. The match has been rather intensive in the 3rd period. With both sides played very well.

But it was the visitors who drew the crowd into attention as Daniel Phang managed to score following a great pass by Alvin L. and showing some signs of a comeback from Salibandy!Co.

However, there were many unprofessional fouls in this period as 4 players from
Salibandy!Co. were given two-minutes bench penalty for committing an offence of incorrect hit.
The first two penalties gave
Rascals a huge opportunity to extend their lead over the visitors as they scored two goals. The scorers were Carlos and Dennis; with Carlos assisting Dennis’ goal.

On the other hand,
Salibandy!Co. showed some fighting spirit as well as Terence made a vital pass to allow Alvin L. to score from the follow-up; making the scoreline 2-14.

Nevertheless, Suresh played an all-important role in this game and pushed forward from the defence and assisted Carlos’ 6th goal of the game in the 14th minute.
Rascals then made the scoreline even more one-sided as Carlos added two more goals into the score sheet; Bing Hock also added another one. Dennis and Vicky both assisted the goals with Dennis assisted two.

Alvin L. managed to score another consolation goal for
Salibandy!Co. after a great Jonathan pass in the offensive run.

The match ended Subang Rascals 18-3 Salibandy!Co.

The first derby game in the League. With many people expecting Griffins to win this game, Hornets are nowhere far behind from their derby rivals. Coach Hafidz knows that Griffins must win this game as they are stuck at the bottom of the League. But Hornets have been playing interesting Floorball recently and they knew that they have a chance to pull this through as well.

1st period:

The match starts off after
Suresh and Satyan, the match referees for the day have blown the whistle. The first period was rather tight as the result was still goalless despite many close-ranged efforts. However, Griffins’ keeper, Azmill Hadzim (no.1) and Hornets’ keeper, Huzairyazlan (no.1) did a tremendous job keeping their net empty during the first period.

But, on the final minute of the period, Noralea (no.22) of
Hornets was given a 2-min bench penalty for incorrect hit (code 201).

*KLIUC Hornets 0-0 KLIUC Griffin*

2nd period:

Griffins have an advantage over the Hornets at the start of the 2nd period because
Noralea’s 2-min penalty was brought to the 2nd period after she has only served 30 seconds of penalty before the end of first period. 5-man Hornets played defensively at the start of the period.

At the 4th minute,
Muhammad Afiq (no.77) of Griffins was given a 2-min bench penalty for intentionally lifting his stick high (code 203). Griffins were down to 5-man due to the incident. A minute later, Hafidz (no.55) was also given a 2-min bench penalty for lifting his stick high (code 203). More woes have been added to Griffins as Mohd. Faiz (no.88) accidentally headed the ball (code 214) and he was given a 2-min bench penalty. But lucky enough for Griffins as Muhammad Afiq managed to finish serving his penalty before Faiz was handed the penalty. Griffins played only with 4-man as two of their players were serving the penalty.

However, spectators have to wait till the 17th minute to see the first goal of the match after Mohd. Faiz gave a cheeky pass to Hafidz and he went on to score his first goal of the season and
Griffins’ first goal of the game.

Hornets fought back before the end of the 2nd period as Zulfadli (no.18) scored his third goal of the season and Hornets’ equalizer of the game, thanks to an amazing pass by teammate, Zahir Fikri (no.7).

*KLIUC Hornets 1-1 KLIUC Griffins*

3rd period:

Both sides have been playing very well during the first and second period, but it was Griffins who put themselves back into the lead after
Afiq (no.66) made a pass to Muhammad Afiq and he scored Griffins’ 2nd goal of the game.

At the 12th minute, Muhammad Afiq then took advantage over a great pass by Taqiuddin (no.99) and he scored his 2nd of the game and
Griffins’ 3rd. What a tremendous display !

A minute later,
Taqiuddin then put his name on the scoresheet as he also scored a goal after another great pass by Afiq. It was not long till the 5th goal after Muhammad Afiq managed to make a great solo run and put the ball into the back of the net at the 14th minute. Hornets’ keeper has no chance to save it.

The match ended
KLIUC Hornets 1-5 KLIUC Griffins; Griffins’ first win of the season.

Everyone has been talking about it, and it is one of the biggest games of the League. Gang Bintang and Subang Rascals will be playing against each other and this match has drawn a huge crowd of spectators. Gang Bintang and Subang Rascals have been doing rather well in the League as both sides were on a goal-scoring spree. This top of the table clash proves to be very important for both teams as a win over the other will put them at the forefront of the league table. Both sides have an interesting lineup of players for this game and they were both equipped with many star players.

1st period:

The match started off as match referees of the game,
Danush and Alvin have blown the whistle. But it was Gang Bintang who gave the visitors a huge shocker as Filip (no.82) scored the fastest-goal ever recorded in the League’s history after just 5 seconds into the period. What a tremendous start to this amazing match !

Gang Bintang and
Subang Rascals have been playing fairly in the first period as there were few fouls from both sides.

Rascals finally found the equalizer at the 16th minute after Juha N. (no.11) managed to take a shot and the ball went through Arizal’s legs and caught Illyaz, the keeper of Gang Bintang, off guard and the ball went into the back of the net; a great pass from Dennis (no.7) as well.

*Gang Bintang 1-1 Subang Rascals*

2nd period:

Spectators have been seeing an exciting first period and will be expecting even more fast-paced Floorball displays by both teams. And it was worth the wait as
Gang Bintang’s players played several simple combinations of passes and Dahlia (no.17) scored her first goal of the season and Gang Bintang’s 2nd of the game after a great pass by Anwar (no.36).

But at the 14th minute,
Juha (no.69) made a through pass to allow Sasi (no.81) to score Rascals’ equalizer and they leveled the scoreline again. More disasters have struck Gang Bintang as they were handed a penalty after one of Gang Bintang’s players allegedly stepped into their own keeper’s area. Sasi took the penalty calmly and confidently at the 15th minute and he put the ball back into the net with a textbook finish; his 2nd of the game.

Gang Bintang managed to draw the score level as Lada (no.3) scored his first goal of the game after a great pass by Khalid (no.26). What a great display by both sides !

Santeri (no.15) of Rascals was given a 2-min bench penalty after he allegedly repeated his offence (code 217) of roughing. The penalty then gave Gang Bintang a chance to switch to their power-play and it paid off as Filip scored his 2nd goal and put Gang Bintang back into the lead.

*Gang Bintang 4-3 Subang Rascals*

3rd period:

The final period of the game and
Gang Bintang are a period away to equal the points in the league table. But Rascals have switched their style of play as a hope to equalize or even an attempt to win the game.

Lionel (no.9) was then handed a 2-min bench penalty after he also allegedly repeated his offence (code 217). Gang Bintang then switched to a much more defensive play due to the penalty. But there was a breakthrough as Lionel managed to return after serving the penalty and made a vital pass to Kenny (no.44) and he did not disappoint his team by giving Gang Bintang a 2-goal cushion in the scoreline.

At the 11th minute,
Suresh (no.4) was then given a 2-min bench penalty after he also repeated his offence (code 217) and Gang Bintang then went on to another power-play.

Nevertheless, it was during a clash between Arizal and some
Rascals’ players that caused some speculations. Arizal then claimed that Rascals’ players were committing too many incorrect hits but on the other hand, it was Arizal who was given the 2-min bench penalty for unsportsmanlike behavior (code 101).

Gang Bintang was then down to 5-man once again and
Rascals have went into power-play as an attempt to pull the score level. But Illyaz (no.1) managed to stop some vital shots by Rascals’ players and he was on the peak of his form.

Gang Bintang went into another breakthrough as Arizal (no.80) scored Gang Bintang’s 6th goal right after he returned from serving his penalty; another tremendous pass by Khalid.

And at the 17th minute, Juha of
Rascals was given a 2-min bench penalty after he lifted his stick high (code 206) and was spotted by the referees. Spectators then get to see another round of tremendous Gang Bintang’s power-play and it paid off yet again as Lionel scored his first goal of the season following a great pass by Sjaiful (no.2). Gang Bintang’s power-play has been very effective in the game.

The final whistle was blown and
Gang Bintang overcame their rivals and handed them their first defeat of the season. Gang Bintang took over the lead in the league table due to goal differences.

The match ended Gang Bintang 7-3
Subang Rascals.

Coach Hafidz believed his team can do it again this time and both sides’ chances of winning were equal.

1st period:

The match started off as referees, Sjaiful and Arizal, have blown the whistle. These two sides were equally good as each other and will not take this game lightly. After several tight actions, the score was still level halfway through the period; credits also to both keepers for putting on several superb displays.

However, Andrian (no.77) of Salibandy!Co. was given a 2-min bench penalty after he incorrectly hit (code 201) on his opponent’s stick. Spectators have to wait till the 15th minute for the first goal and this time it was Griffins who broke the deadlock through Abdul Malik (no.66) following a great pass by Muhammad Faiz (no.6).

*Salibandy!Co. 1-1 KLIUC Griffin*

2nd period:

But it was Griffins who made the breakthrough once again at the 5th minute after Taqiuddin (no.99) made a vital pass to Afiq (no.66) and he scored from the rebound though Danush (no.1) made an important save at the first shot but his second save was not good enough to stop the rebound as the ball flew past him and went into the back of the net.

3 minutes later, Griffins then suffered a huge blow as Syed (no.30) was given a 2-min penalty for incorrect hit (code 201). Salibandy!Co. then took the advantage over the 5-man Griffins and they equalized the scoreline through Gerard (no.8).

*Salibandy!Co. 2-2 KLIUC Griffins*

3rd period:

Both sides were still equal at the 3rd period and wanted to claim the victory. However, Arnan (no.49) of Salibandy!Co. was given a 2-min bench penalty after he committed an offence of incorrect hit (code 201). More names were added into the penalty list as Kesavan (no.24) of Griffins was also given a 2-min bench penalty after he became the 6th man on court and served the penalty due to additional players on the court (code 216).

Salibandy!Co. then took an advantage over the 5-man Griffins once again and Alvin L. then gave his team a one-goal lead after a nice pass from Kel Sern (no.32).

But it was at the 16th minute that the headline of the day was made. After a foul was committed in the game, both sides’ players then went into a fight and caused the time of the match to stop. Even more complications have added, as Amir (no.54) then went into the court from the players’ bench and got himself involved in the fight. Andrian was also involved in the incident as he repeatedly protested on the ref’s decision.

This leaves referee Sjaiful no choice but to send both players to the bench penalty with Amir serving a 5-min penalty for roughing (code 504) and Andrian for protesting (code 219). Both sides were down to 5-man.

More woes have been added to Salibandy!Co. as Daniel Phang (no.77) was then given a 2-min bench penalty for incorrect hit (code 201). However, Hafidz of Griffins was also given a 2-min bench penalty a minute later for roughing (code 504).

The tough match has ended finally as Salibandy!Co. claimed their first win of the League and they are now 3 pts behind the league leaders.
