In January, the KBFF Orcas earned 2 hard-fought wins out of 4 games in the Singapore Floorball League with some held at the new court in Our Tampines Hub.
A match to remember was definitely the game against Supernova. Our keeper, Xuan Zhi, had NUS IHG that day and could not make it.
Our vice-captain Serene Quek stepped up to suit up and take a crash course in goalkeeping.
It was quite an experience for Serene. She faced quite a number of box plays and even a penalty. Overall, a valiant performance that earned much cheer and support from her teammates before and after the game.
“Initially, I wasn’t very keen on taking up the position because I didn’t feel that I would be suitable but after playing, it felt good because the team was supportive. Although I didn’t feel confident, everyone kept reassuring me and it was very touching. In the end, I was glad I did it because it was truly an eye opening experience since it’s something that I have never done before.”
Prizes and special mentions are a part of the KBFF Orcas tradition after every league game. This time, goalscorer Elise and Joshlyn, two of our recent recruits, were commended for their improvement and work ethic.
They may not be the best forwards around but their effort is there and I can see the change from then and now. – Coach Sonia Teo
The referee’s MOTM was Ariel, the youngest player in our squad *claps*!
It was a Mixed Fortunes February as we lost one at the start and redeemed ourselves at the game yesterday despite the long Chinese New Year break.
Well done to MOTM, our veteran Hui An, and Afiqah for the splendid improvement in her first ever league season.
Our first game against Zyrus FC marked the commencement of the Division 3 Singapore Floorball League. Although we got off on the wrong foot, it pushed us to train even harder for our next match. Our Man of the Match (MOTM) was Amielle Alimusa (#01), who was our keeper of the day with many nice saves to boot. Amielle has been with KBFF since she was 15!
Amielle: As a backup keeper, i felt honoured to kick off the season with the team. I haven’t stepped into court in the past year and i was hella nervous that i would mess up, however the girls gave me constant encouragement that i needed throughout the game which really helped me get in my zone. I’m ever so grateful to be in a team that puts so much faith and trust in me. I owe my motm title to the team & coach for their genuine support and guidance, y’all are da real mvp 💪
Determined to bounce back after our loss last week, we fought hard in our game against NTU Storm.
As aptly put by our MOTM Emily Ortega (#33), “The game on Sunday was a great one for us because not only was it our first win of the season, we displayed some fine team play and team spirit! We’ll continue to work hard and play well for the rest of the season…and score more goals!”
Our lack of intensity and and focus cost us our third game against Katana FC. A third period fightback was not enough.
Our MOTM was Jaime Cheong and our players’ choice award went to one of our pioneers, Koh Hui An. She has been with us from our rough 2010 beginnings 😀
With the seniors putting in a good shift, this game was a timely wake up call for the young players to use the holiday break to train much harder.
Our sessions will resume in January. Contact us to get onto our mailing list.
When we first set out to form a second team, our main goal was to give more girls an opportunity to play. Little did we know that we were opening the doors to something greater than that.
Today, #KBFFOrcas is a stellar squad made up of passionate ladies who teach us the meaning of hard work and perseverance. A team strengthened by the vigour of our junior players and the poise of the seniors.
As they gear up for their third season in Division 3, we would like to thank Coach Sonia Teo without whom, this progress would not have been possible.
