If you've missed the entire day of 9-A-Side football yesterday, you can be assured that there were thrills, spills, and lots of everything else in between.
After a long day of football, the final proved to be a level affair between Sentosa FC and Sudaroli FC. The two teams were tied in normal play and after two rounds of penalties, the scores were still tied. But after the toss of a coin, Sentosa FC emerged as the first champions of the 2010 9-A-Side Tournament.
On behalf of BBRA, we congratulate the newly crown champions and the runner-up. Completing the honours list were Majestic FC in third place, and Bukit Tinggi 1 in fourth place.
Popular businessman and philanthropist, YB OMS Thiagarajan, presented the trophies to all the winning parties.
As a token of appreciation to the guest of honour, the mentally and physically-challenged children from the Handicapped and Disabled Children's Association of Klang Selangor were given a donation by the organiser.
The one day event which was organised by Botanic Soccer Club and BBRA, in association with Majlis Perbandaran Klang and Cassia Gemilang Sdn Bhd, received participation of over 30 teams from around the Klang district.
In a special note of thanks for making the event a success, BBRA would like to thank the St Johns Ambulance, RELA, Balai Polis Botanic and Bukit Tinggi, the referees from the Football Association, children from the Handicapped and Disabled Children's Association of Klang, and residents of Bandar Botanic who have made the event a cheerful one.
