Just this weekend Kaya FC faced Philippines Navy in our 3rd game of the 2012 season. After our close win over Green Archer’s last weekend, the team was in high spirit. We came ready to hit the bumpy field of the University of Makati, and to display a performance different from the match before. We knew we had just barely escaped a one pt upset with Archers, and we knew that with our performance we were lucky to come out with a 3 point win. Determined to change this, we revamped and regrouped for the Navy match, only to find ourselves in a very similar situation. In both Archers and Navy matches, we played a game only conducive to the field conditions at Umak, and we did a good job creating goal scoring opportunities. Our only problem was finishing those chances when we are in and around the goal. Looking at the stat sheets to see our shots on goal compared to the last 2 teams we played, it is evident that are goal scoring percentages are extremely low. Where as Archer and Navy both capitalized on mere half chances. On paper the teams we have beaten, have higher goal scoring percentages than we do.
This tells us that we need to do a better job converting more on the chances we create and we need to solidify our mistakes when teams see small windows to goal. Despite the close games, I feel our team is overall more confident as our focused and directed training has been translating on the field. Though progress is being made, we still have plenty to work on.
Our focus and hard work will hopefully determine more secure results in the league to come. We will see how this plays out in our upcoming match against Loyal Meralco Sparks, an epic rematch since facing them in the UFL Cup Semi-Finals.
