KaDy 0-2 Ilves. Futsal Play-Off Semi-Final Game.1
We are still the Champions and we’re not giving our title away easily!
Perfect away performance today from Ilves, a shut-out victory away from home against the regular season league winners. Before the game it was announced that JP Torvinen would not be starting today which was a blow to lose him. The other semi-final game today was between GFT and Sievi, incredibly Sievi scored 4 first half goals before crumbling after the break and conceding 4 second half goals and eventually GFT went on to win the game and with that a 1-0 lead in their best-of-three series, game 2 will be on Wednesday and if GFT win again they will be into the Final.
As for the reigning Finnish Champions, we have a new hero in Timur Inapshba who put us 1-0 ahead in the first half of our semi-final game in Jyväskylä, the second half even better for us, lots of KaDy pressure but Ilves defended perfectly and just 24 seconds before the end of the game we took a two goal lead, Antti Teittinen sealing victory. Game 1 finished and we have a series lead to take back to Tampere, Spiral-Halli will be ready, Wednesday night 19:00 all we need to do is win this one game and we are into a familiar place, the Finnish Futsal Play-Off Finals!
Finishing 4th in the regular season table means we have to be a good road team, we are! KaDy only lost 1 game all season long, it’s not over yet, they will be a hard team to beat on Wednesday, we’ll not get a better opportunity that this though.
