August: Ortega Cup 2015
The 10th edition of the Ortega Cup was held on 21 August at Raffles Institution. The U-16 boys were hungry for revenge and having just come off a fantastic soccer season, they were raring to go and win back the Ortega Cup.
Right from the get go, the boys were on the attack, breaking into the Raffles defense on many occasions and finally, they were rewarded with a goal towards the end of the first half. The second half was no different, with the boys relentless on the prize to win back the Cup. This culminated in another well taken goal.
Final Score: SJI 2 – Raffles 0
The O-40s are always a sight to watch and this time round it was no different. With a contingent of more than 20 able-bodied souls, the O-40s donned their jerseys with pride and played with their hearts on the sleeve. However, the Raffles team this year was bolstered with new entrants, with one of them having a little bit more gas in the tank. The gameplay was quick and thrilling and Team Raffles was up 2 goals to 1 by the end of the first half.
After a quick re-group, the SJI O-40s team came out firing, and equalized at the start of the second half. Spirits were bolstered and all the team needed to do was to park the bus and hold out for the draw to win back the Suhaimi Ali Cup. However, a crucial injury blow was dealt to Adrian Quek with a nasty head-on clash, taking out a key defender towards the trail end of the half. The Rafflesians capitalized on this, scoring two quick goals in the last 10 minutes, and effectively ending SJI's chances.
Final score: Raffles 4 – SJI 2
The U-40s were the perennial underdogs coming into this match. The Raffles U-40s team has been playing for many years together and is a very well drilled unit. Captain Siong Guan (Class of 2003), specifically took it upon himself to make it a mission to finally get a win. Training for the U-40s started early on, with many training matches and games having played over the Saturdays leading up to this day.
The strategy was to play the ball out of our own halves and this was brilliant. New additions to the team bolstered up the defences and Siong Guan's performance was exceptional. Long balls played up field frustrated the Rafflesians. The first half ended up 0 – 0.
The Raffles team came out firing in the second half. Desperately wanting a goal, they surged forward but the SJI team held strong and gamely counter-attacked. With a long through ball, and with the Raffles defense caught unaware, the Josephians ''smashed'' one goal right in.
From there, it was a matter of holding out and the boys packed everything they had into our defense. This effectively ended any chance that the Rafflesians had.
Final score: SJI 1 – Raffles 0
