Blue Boys in SSFD Bounce Back final
Blue Blues defeated Spoilers 2-0 in the semi-finals of the Southern Stream First Division Bounce Back (SSFD) league this weekend.
The Swakopmund-based team scored two goals courtesy of Christian Doeseb and Gabrielle Kahimise to advance to the final.
Blue Boys’ coach Ashley Olyn described the match as tough encounter.
“Spoilers is a well-organised team. It was a fifty-fifty match in terms of dominance, but we were better organised at the end of the day.”
Spoilers coach Kenny Malgas said that his team had to make do without injured players.
“The match was fine and both teams played the same 4-3-3 formation. We are unlucky. The best team won on the day but what made it difficult was that our squad was at half strength.”
According to Malgas, it was difficult playing two games in two days with the same players, while the home team rested some players and also played with fresh players.
“However, I am happy with my guys, we fought hard. We will go back to drawing board, do our homework and keep working hard every day,” he said.
Olyn said that he and his charges are confident of winning the final.
“The mood in the camp is high and my players are ready for the final.”
Blue Boys defeated Khomas NamPol 5-4 on penalties in the quarter finals after a 2-2 draw.
The coach said that his side’s performance in the SFFD Bounce Back league is an indication that the team is ready to battle it out to gain promotion to the premier league.
He called on all soccer lovers from the coast to come and support Blue Boys when they take on Ramblers in the final in Windhoek on 23 October.
