Etoile Pipped Singapore SEA Games Squad

Etoile FC ended their season in the best possible way with a 3-2 win over a depleted Young Lions missing skipper Hariss Harun, Khairul Nizam and Safuwan Baharudin, in soggy Queenstown Stadium.

The match was postponed for 15 minutes as match officials checked on the pitch conditions to ensure that it is 'playable'. However, once Abbas Daud blew the whistle to start the game, both teams ignored the pitch conditions and attacked with intent to net the early goal.

Theo Raymond drew first blood - volleying home the lead for the Stars to pave the way ahead for the Stars. But just like previous encounters, the visitors would find an equaliser through a free kick which Hadama Bathily missed completely. The home side were able to bring a 2-1 lead into the dressing room at the end of 1st half after some good footwork by Sinira Camara saw Kamel Chaauonne heading into the net.

In the 2nd half, the Cubs managed to test Hadama many a times but were largely unsuccessful until when a mistake from the Etoile defence saw the equalizer, and the unbeaten record against Etoile FC this season.

Substitute Kevin LeFranc had other ideas in ending the season and a spectacular overhead kick sealed all 3 points for the Stars.

Etoile Ultras would like to thank the players who had played their last game for the team and wish them all the best in their footballing career. Etoile Ultras would also wish to send our best wishes to the 2 players joining the Malaysian League Singapore team.

No matter the result, no matter the playerss, Ultras will always be behind Etoile FC.
