An Inch From Disaster
While his fracture was bad, club doctors declared that Hovaness Noubaryan
had actually been fortunate, with his shinbone showing signs of nearly breaking into three. "Had that happened, his career would almost certainly have been over." head doctor Raymond Cheong said. "As it is, he should be back, but not anytime soon."
Stand-in Dan Seng
was happy enough to collect the clean sheet, but expressed sorrow at his senior's misfortune. "This is a reminder that it could all end in an instant. Awyong is feeling down too, but it really wasn't his fault either. Hopefully, Hovaness will enjoy a speedy recovery, and I will manage to stop shots for him in the meantime."
