Interim head coach Aarnoudse demean-our when discussing the finishing deficit from those other than Robert Jan & Rogier (injured) can be weary resignation. An illustration of why came when Robert Jan again received the ball in the danger zone near F.C. P.O.C's goal. Yet rather than smack it hard at the No1 of the opponent he instead over-elaborated with a flick over the top that found no one. Then, at last, Kester did pull the trigger and it was successful by scoring a given penalty after a foul on our young Dutch striker Rick A.. This opener derived from a first-time Rick A. attempt that, when saved by the goalie, squeezed to the left. The young Dutch man clever attempt through the middle from a tight angle gave him deserved penalty after being pushed over in the box. It arrived 15 minutes from half-time and meant F.C. Lowlands strolled off at the break in good heart. Given that F.C. P.O.C. had been close to toothless in the first half, Aarnoudse may have sensed more goals and a higher margin for his side if they continued pressing but the start of the second half did not follow suit. Aarnoudse Senior himself secured an assist from the opponent in the box by passing the ball towards goalie Bart de Visser which according to the ref was not allowed back pass to the own goalie. Aarnoudse was booked by the referee for comments after the whistle sounded and a free kick was the result for F.C. P.O.C. Their number 9 striker sent the free-kick to the right of De Visser goal and out of his reach and no proper defense from the the rest of the team resulted in the equalizer. Moments later Eric made a double block inside the area and suddenly F.C. Lowlands were scrambling for the first time. Next Roel produced a cool juggle-then-hook away, again inside the 18-yard box. F.C. Lowlands now sped upfield and should have doubled the score. Dennis Schafer's cross went sweetly into Robert Jan Bakker's but his volley missed to goalie's left. On 62 minutes Aarnoudse replaced Stefan Beukeveld with Eric former player of the BLAS, which suggested he felt it too early to hang on until the close. But then the inevitable happened on the other side. After a nice rush by the central midfielder of P.O.C. and a perfect assist after sending Stefan Scherpenborg, Aarnoudse Senior in to the woods, central defenders Joost Schouten and Jelle de Waal could only look how P.O.C. took the lead by a perfect finish. So what ensued was some Lowlands keep-ball and P.O.C. forays that caused few major headaches until their superb finish. Arjen Flierman was booed when entering late on, yet he managed to work P.O.C.'s goalie, which was more than P.O.C. had managed to do with Bart de Visser. But finally 10 minutes before the final whistle, Kester scored a magnificent goal, hardly to miss, after a perfect assist made by Robert Jan Bakker after hard work and keeping their defense busy of Rick Aarnoudse. The late equalizer was more then deserved and gave the squad a better feeling after the final whistle sounded. Before this match kicked off Aarnoudse senior said: “We have a special feeling for this Midweek League because now this is the only competition we can win on the mid-longer term. It will be difficult. We play 20 matches to get here, we travel around Singapore, now we have to push.” With today's man of the match his son Rick Aarnoudse with the squad this should give more confidence to the team. After the match comments given by central defenders Schouten and De Waal said: this was a tough match with fast attackers around us swirling, so we needed to stay focused until the end. Unfortunately with a little bit of help by the ref they scored the 1-1 which brought us back to square one. Next week we need to be more focused and give our opponent the feeling there is nothing to get. That being said the 2-2 draw reflects best how the match evolved. Much luck and success for P.O.C. in their next matched coming up.

POC continued its unbeaten run with a 2-2 draw agains Lowlands FC last night. It was a game of two halves with Lowlands FC taking the lead having converted from the penalty spot early in the 1st half. Rae was adjudged to have lunged at the oncoming striker and fouling him in the process. POC piled the pressure on their opponents in the 2nd half and their efforts were soon rewarded when Jiancong equalised from a free kick in the box after Lowlands FC were penalised for making a backpass. POC then took the lead minutes later with some neat, old fashioned counter attacking play as Jason slotted the ball home from a cross to put the younglings in the lead. Credits to Lowlands FC for displaying maturity and experience after conceding the 2nd goal. The team started to push men forward in search of a leveller and were duly rewarded as they equalised through a corner kick in the dying minutes. P/s: Sincerely hope to see more players show up for the next game.
