Seoul City Warriors fell to a narrow loss this evening, as they played out a thrilling match against Seoul based side FC Mad Dog.
Final score: FC Mad Dog 5 - 4 Seoul City Warriors
Warriors began the game with a healthy squad, as more returning players gave a strong look to the starting lineup. This strength showed as Warriors raced into a 4-1 lead at half time, with goals from Mohamed Bakhlal (a brace), Tatsuya Kusano, and Manu putting the team in a commanding position.
The second half, however, gave the new squad some valuable lessons, as they allowed the game to get scrappy and frantic, and FC Mad Dog clawed their way back into the match. A combination of a long range efforts, free kick, and goal mouth scrambles condemned Warriors to a 5-4 loss, as tiredness gave way to avoidable errors. Despite the disappointing final result, there was a lot for the team to be proud of, and clear things for the team to work on before their next match this coming Friday.
