SMI Footballers Shine!

Michaelian footballers U15 at the Kinta Utara B Zone.

Under 15 team (2008)

We thrashed SMK Jati 1 -0. SMI proceeded to play with SMK Kampung Pasir Puteh, beating them 2-0. The boys then met up with SMK Jelapang Jaya but we lost 0-1. We qualified for the quarter-final, went home happily after we took SMK Aminuddin Baki, Chemor with an impressive 4-0. However, during the semi-final, we lost to SMK Anderson 0-3. Nevertheless, we achieved what we actually hoped for this year - we got third placing after beating SMK Pusing, 3-1.

Coach En Zulkarnain Daud was greatly pleased with the overall performance of the players. We congratulate them for their strong Michaelian spirit.

Under 18 team(2008)

For the U18 tournament, SMI beat SMK Buntong 3-1. We went on to beat SMK Poi Lam 3-0. The match with SMK Kampung Pasir Puteh was 1-1 and SMK Jalan Pasir Puteh 0-0. We therefore qualified for quarter-final but lost to SMK Jelapang Jaya after we played an additional time of 2-2. The penalty kicks were the deciding factor. We lost 2-4.

The tough fight we put up was commendable. We went battling against much tougher and seasoned teams with strong fighting spirit. Against Anderson, we put up a brave front and went home losing with only a narrow margin. Yes. We aspire to beat them next year.
Thank you, En Adi, En Zulkarnain, En Abi Talib, En Sharruzaman, En Omar and En Hashim from PKNP for helping the school. Thank you all for a job well done.
