It turned out to be another enthralling game of football as D2Devilz came face to face with Data Daemons. Both sides were missing few of their key players in their lineup. However, the match was a tough one as opposed to what was thought to be a dull one-sided game.
With so many individual talents in Devilz, they were testing the Daemons goalie right from the beginning. Services had almost continuous surges of attacks but were finding very difficult to find the Daemons net. The visitors played some promising counterattacks but, apart from one very close offside call, their chances were far and few. Amendra was surely the man of the first half to keep the visitor’s score at 0-0.
The second half saw the whole new Services team. After the restart, it took only four passes between Richan and Milan before Richan found the back of the net. The Devilz, buoyed by the goal, had several shots on and off targets, most of them denied by the Daemons #1. However, the Daemons defense soon fell back further after Milan’s pin-point ball in from right side found Richan’s foot for the Devliz’ 2nd in the 47th minute. The Devilz were quite comfortable after that and played a relaxed game to see their side win 2-0.
