“We lost concentration”: Loloito
By Taromane Martin
HEAD Coach for the Real Kakamora futsal team Barnabas Loloito blamed their lack of concentration for their downfall yesterday.
Real Kakamora lost 4-1 to 2017 Wantok Futsal Cup champions G-Camp FC at the Multipurpose Hall.
Eddie Huniehu gave G-Camp the lead after a well worked counter that left Real Kakamora goal keeper Philip Mango diving the wrong way.
Real Kakamora had chances to level the scores in the first half but saw Michael Oge missing all four of his chances to trail 1-0 at the break.
Real Kakamora almost levelled when second half resumed but saw their shout for goal waved off by the match referee.
Huniehu thumped three more goals past Mango before setting up their fourth goal to seal the victory yesterday.
“I think our goal in the second which was disallowed also affected our concentration which left our defence open,” Coach Loloito said.
“In the second half we reminded the boys to stick to the basics but unfortunately we lost concentration.
“Take nothing away from G-Camp they are a champion side and I think the boys were sucked into playing the game to their speed and rhythm.
“We’ll go back and continue working on the things we’ve been working on because to be honest the boys did not fully execute what we have been doing, so that is what we’ll do for our remaining games,” he said.
G-Camp Head Coach John Tome although pleased with the result said his boys still need to improve on their fitness and other areas for their remaining seven matches.
“I’m pleased with the result. This year we are missing some of our senior boys but we try as much to be competitive in this competition.
“We still have a lot of areas to improve on and fitness is one of them which I will be working hard on to improve for our remaining seven matches,” Coach Tome adds.
The win for G-Camp yesterday sees them with nine points after three matches played while Real Kakamora are with three points after four matches played.
Meanwhile, the 2018 SIPA National Futsal league will continue tomorrow with three more matches at the Multipurpose Hall.
Matches for tomorrow will see Kooline FC taking on FC at 2pm followed by Vania FC up against Indo-Solo at 3pm while the final action will the Futsal Solympics taking on Guntimac Fc at 4pm.
