One game at a time

SIPA futsal competition continues tomorrow.

By Taromane Martin

FUTSAL Solympics Head Coach Stanley Puirana says his side will take one game at a time as they continue their preparation for this year’s Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Airez, Argentina.

The national U-17 futsal team picked up their third win in the SIPA futsal league on Tuesday defeating KOSSA 6-2.

A victory Puirana says shows the improvements they made from their previous games but knows they will need to continue working hard to collect points in the competition.

“Our performance in the first game the intensity was high. The intensity dropped in our second game but picked up again today,” he told SunSPORTS at the Multipurpose Hall yesterday.

“We were not settled in the first half because our uniforms arrived late and we had to improvise on getting the boys settled and ready.

“In the second half I told the boys to stick to our game plan and execute what we have been learning so far.

“But winning today does not mean we are satisfied. We’ll still continue to work on areas we need to improve on because we are not only preparing for this competition but also preparing for the Youth Olympic Games.

“For me we will continue to keep working hard, stay humble and take one game at a time,” he adds.

Other results from yesterday’s SIPA Futsal league saw G-Gamp defeating Indo-Solo 7-3 while Real Kakamora picked up their first win in the league defeating Koloale 5-2.

The SIPA national futsal league matches meanwhile will continue tomorrow at the Multipurpose Hall.

Tomorrow’s matches will see Vania FC taking on Mataks FC at 2pm followed by Kooline and Guntimac FC at 3pm and then Indo-Solo FC taking on Marist FC at 4pm.
