Marking The Occasion

The scoreline was the last thing on most of the audience's minds, as Grilled marked their hosting - and visiting - of at least one representative from each Hattrick league, with much pomp after the match. There were nice tokens for all, from a club with much to celebrate these days.

Chan Ze Han would not lose sight of a unique accomplishment, that of finishing a season with a perfect fourteen league wins, which the Birds will have if they defeat Joker 9 at home on Sunday. "They'll be recounting this feat for ages to come." Chan insisted. "I don't think any of us want anything less."

Farmer Bunnies would prepare for their own last round, with a good 3-0 home taming of Saudi Arabian III.16 leaders Jazan Economic City Yacht Club. The Swiss Habanero CF affiliates were undone by two Namdar Zarar penalties, before former Saudi U-20 forward Ibrahim Zahran Al-Maashany exploited a mentally-drained Jazan down the left, with about twenty minutes remaining. Current Qatari youth international Nawaf Al-Shaqab had dealt with Ibrahim excellently up till then, but one lapse was all it took.

Ibrahim acknowledged the intensity of Nawaf's man-marking after the fact. "He's one of the nippiest defenders that I've ever come up against. Maybe his strength and tackling aren't absolutely tip-top yet, but he can recover for a second go most of the time, which is usually enough."

Former Kazakh Emerald Challenger Cup winners GV Gurktürk Petropawlowsk were taken down 1-5 by Grilled International at their Awinogard-Stadion, though they admittedly fielded a reserve XI. 19 year-old Hardi bin Besar was notably impressive, as he outshone even Wang Hanxuan for much of the contest; that extended to his cool 71st minute goal, which was flighted elegantly between a defender's legs, and into goalkeeper Ariel Czujko's blind spot.
