SINGAPORE, 15 JANUARY 2012 – The Courts Young Lions emerged victorious over the H-TWO-O Ultimate Dream Team after a nerve-wrecking penalty shoot-out in a match that was played at Jalan Besar Stadium this evening.
With a charity element in place, a total of S$2,200 was raised for the Jamiyah Children’s Home from the goals scored by the H-TWO-O Ultimate Dream Team in open play and the media challenge that saw journalists take on former Lion, Lionel Lewis in a penalty shoot-out.
The match produced a few worthy goal mouth action moments in the first half but it was in the second half that the match took a turn for the better as the 1,256 fans present saw a total of four well taken goals, two from Courts Young Lions, Mohd Sahil Suhaimi and Safuwan Baharudin and another two from the H-TWO-O Ultimate Dream Team, Ignatius Ang and M.Arvin.
The teams had to go into the dreaded penalty shoot-out as 90 minutes were not enough to determine a winner.
Courts Young Lions then beat the H-TWO-O Ultimate Dream Team 8-7 in penalties.
