  • Championship Match Report

  • Supreme (WYHK) fetched the champion cup from the hands of Nice Team (WYK) with a 3-2 victory in front of a crowd of around 150 during the Wah Yan Kowloon open day. As anticipated, the game was enjoyable and full of excitement. Nice Team, last year’s champion, started the game with superb performance but they were shocked by Supreme’s captain, Arthur Wong, heading in a grenade side ball throw. The game continued on with quality display and the first half saw Supreme leading by 1-0. Shortly after the two teams returned to the pitch, Bryant Siu headed in Supreme’s second surprise goal from a brilliant pass. This did not discourage the Kowloon boys and the match was pushed to a climax when the young Hong Kong international, Poon Chun Yu, quickly scored in close range narrowing the gap to 1-2. Nice Team could have equalized from a sudden pass that crossed a few feet in front of the helpless Supreme goalie but it happened so fast that everyone there missed the touch. Nice Team continued on and dominated the game keeping the ball well in possession. However, they have to pay for their neglect when Philip Cheuk, who had narrowly missed the goal bars twice, was left unmarked. Cheuk demonstrated to his opponents that he deserves to be the top scorer for five straight seasons when his head flicked in his 10th goal in this term. This important score looked critical and caused the spectators to hold their breath. But Poon Chun Yu promptly showed his international player’s talent and finished his dual stirring up the hope of his fans. At this stage, it looked as if Supreme would be torn apart any minute but they held on until the referee blew the stoppage whistle to finish the derby. It was a good game with Nice Team putting up a number of splendid and spectacular attacks but they would never forgive themselves for losing three headers in a tiny pitch. Well done Supreme and congradulations to Philip Cheuk.

  • Arsenal vs Manchester United?
  • There's no better comparsion for this year's football league cup grand final. Defending champion Nice Team (WYK) will be challenged by Supreme (WYHK), made up of members from the champion of the first league cup including the four time top scorer holder. However, they still have their ex-Hong Kong national junior and other talented players in their camp. A true Derby between the Kowloon and Hong Kong schools. We definitely will be having the tightest game that this tournament has ever witnessed. Our commentator is predicting a 2-2 draw during the regular play time but can't make up his mind as to the final outcome in the sudden death exposure. Mark your diary and come along not only to cheer for the teams but also for your school - 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, 27 March 2004.
