Eye-Opener

The friendly against the Sabahan a couple of weeks back was a good training ground for us as a team. Although unheard of to most of the players, the Sabahan gave Spearhead a positive and good impression with their nifty and good flow of floorball game-play. Although we lost big time to the Sabahan, it was a really good platform not just to learn from them, but also to meet more floorballers around Malaysia and to know that the sport is growing and therefore, we need to grow as well so that we can compete at a higher level as the game continues to move forward. The challenge in floorball for us is to always continuously grow both as an individual and as a team.

The Sabahans, although unheard of by many, was a good team.
Played well as a team and as individuals.

Spearhead all pumped up for the friendly!

Working hard on court.

Watch the drag!

A good test for Syahmi, Spearhead's goalkeeper.

With that in mind, training will have a brand new 'challenge' for you guys! Be ready cause' it's gonna hit you real hard. Training sessions will be more fun, intensive and a whole lot more meaner!

Spearhead!

Friendly Match: Spearhead vs Sabahans!

Hey team, yes, you heard it right! There will be a friendly match going on this Saturday between Spearhead Floorball Club and... er... Just a bunch of Sabahan Floorballers! :) Please take note of the details of the match:

Date: 29th May 2010, Saturday
Time: 11am-2pm
Venue: FRU

This will be a great opportunity for all Spearheaders' to widen your range of experience. This group of Sabahans are regular floorballers and they too are excited to play and learn from Spearhead Floorball Club. Team, it's important to keep the momentum going even after the league is over. Yes, yes, it's the exam season for everyone. Study hard and smart for your exams when you have the time but when you come on court, come with a winning spirit! Time to up the intensity, team! How many percent? 110%? No, no... Time to go beyond the 110% mark...

150%! :)

The Beginning of an End.

As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. However, know that this is only the beginning of an end for all of us! The finale at Balik Pulau Sports Complex was one that will definitely be playing in our heads for quite sometime. Both teams, Spearhead and Trailblazers, exited the league with such gusto that it resonated a sense of satisfaction in the stadium.

Spearhead started the closing of PFL Division II by facing their final challenge - team FireBRANDS Patriots. What a way to end the league indeed! And no, it wasn't the scoreline that made our day. The scoreline was merely a bonus. What was really impressive was the joy of seeing a glimpse of what the team could achieve if everyone played their role well, communicated as a team, worked hard and focussed on the objective. The objective for the game was to try to piece up what we couldn't execute in our previous matches, to focus on playing 'floorball' rather than just a game of 'hit-and-run'. It took some time for us to get our rhythm going but once the second period whistled away, Spearhead finally picked up the missing pieces and piece them up beautifully! Very well done, team! While Spearhead started the closing of Division II, Trailblazers on the other hand closed it with the final match of the league, facing the eventual champions - FireBRANDS!

All of us knew that it was going to be a hard match play. And after the big loss against 300, it wasn't going to be any easier for us. But guess what? Trailblazers is all about blazing the trail in the face of defeat or victory! Most would think that you can only leave a legacy behind if you win something. Truth is, even if you lose, you can still leave a strong impression or legacy behind, it's a matter of choice. Speaking of choice, the coaches gave Trailblazers two options prior to the match (which we will keep undisclosed here :P) and from the two options, they chose the harder way out and for that we truly salute you people! Consider it a test, and you passed it with flying colours! Your courage, determination and team spirit will go a long way and will inspire others along this 'trail' ;) Although you guys loss, you guys left a strong impression of positive character and a united spirit. Indeed, Spearhead is proud of you!

Three cheers: Hip, hip, hooray!

Traiblazers, you played with much positive character!
Keep it up!


The closing ceremony and prize giving award was a blast! It was time to acknowledge the teams that have worked hard and earned their medals. Team Spearhead, the newest team in town along with team Trailblazers, came in second in the Penang Floorball League Division II 2010! Congratulations peeps!!!

The boys, receiving their medals!

We also want to take this opportunity to congratulate the other teams in PFL Div II 2010. To team FireBrands, 300 and team Patriots, great job in the league! It was indeed a privilege to be able to play against all of you. What a learning experience it has been! We wish you all the best in your future games :)

The Champs! - Team FireBRANDS

The 2nd Runner-Up! - Team 300

There's just one more award to be announced and that's the PFL Div II All-Star team! Who would've thought that 3 players from Spearhead Floorball Club earned themselves a spot in the All-Star team! Awesome stuff peeps! To Daniel Boey (centre, team Spearhead), Ruben Lai (right defender, team Spearhead) and Amelia Lim (left defender, team Trailblazers - and the only girl in the All-Star Team :P), a big congratulations to each of you! Very well done! Do know that the whole team is extremely proud of you guys! Continue to work hard and inspire others to do likewise!

PFL Div II 2010 All-Star Team
From left:
Tristan (Forward, team 300), Daniel Tan (Forward, team FireBRANDS), Daniel Boey (Centre, team Spearhead), Ruben Lai (Defender, team Spearhead), Amelia Lim (Defender, team Trailblazers) and Omprakash (Goalkeeper, team 300).
Congratulations to the All-Star team!

At the end of the league, you would realize that it's not so much of the medal or the trophy that really matter but more than that, it's the process of achieving a common goal together as a team that makes it worthwhile. Team, this is only the beginning. This part of the phase has ended, the journey ahead will intensify (just as training will intensify with 'killers' :P). Remember, all of you can only move forward if only you choose to do so.

Brace yourself.

Greater things await us, team.

Spearhead Floorball Club,
Penang Floorball League Division II 2010!

Breaking the Bricks!

Yes, without a doubt it was a painful defeat for team Trailblazers last Saturday. Going up against a team like 300 was a real task. But we all know that turning our backs and walking away is not an option. To blaze the trail with our presence, we must first learn to walk through the fiery fire of defeat as a team. No one said victory would come easy.

Looking at the scoreboard, we all know that it is a big margin to erase from our memory. Painful would be an understatement. But team, never ever let the visual scoreline define who you are. Our identity lies in who we are as a team and not by how many defeats or wins we have. Numbers are merely a reflection and a gauge of our performance, not our identity.

On a positive note, it was good to see that the aggressiveness from Trailblazers are gradually improving. Most are beginning to kill the fear of using their body in the game albeit there's still much work to be done. There will be a lot of work to improve awareness and positioning of players as well. Don't be discouraged, team! Keep smiling because training from henceforth will be a whole lot 'meaner', like the 'mean machine'! :P

Trailblazers, know that great teams don't emerge as champions on their first outing in a major competition. The first outing is more of a test of character for the team than winning a medal back home. Great teams stay persistent all the way even in times of deafening defeats.

Great teams are dictators.
They dictate their progress even in times of regress.

So, don't let the bricks of defeats stop you from moving forward.
Break em' bricks and continuing moving forward!

RAAAWWWRRRR!
Breaking the bricks of defeat!

Go Trailblazers!
