Defending champions exit Futsal

Manama : Ras Rumman Youth Centre defeated the defending champions Safrah Youth Centre 6-2 on the second day of Round of 16 matches in the Fifth Khalid bin Hamad Futsal League for Youth Centres, People with Disabilities and Girls (Khalid 5) at the Khalifa Sports City Hall in Isa Town.

The Ras Rumman team smashed in four first half goals and though Al Safrah pegged to goals back early in the second half, their hopes were dashed when Ras Rumman added a further two goals to secure victory, with the man of the match award going to Qassim Hassan of the victorious team.

In the second match played, Muharraq Youth Centre edged out the top scorers in the league Salmabad Youth Centre 8-6 after a penalty shootout with Jassim Al-Jibn the man of the match.. Muharraq’s victory came despite the absence of their star Mahmuod Al-Sharqawi, who was injured in one of the team’s matches in the preliminary rounds. Al-Sharqawi underwent a surgery and may not be able to continue playing in the league.

Attending the latest matches were Ahmed Al-Khayat, President of Bahrain Self-Defense Federation and Mohammed Salmeen, former captain of the Bahrain national team.

The final matches of the playoffs will be held tomorrow to determine the qualifiers for the semifinals.

Simultaneously with the beginning of the playoffs rounds in the youth centres and clubs competitions, Bahrain Sports Channel, headed by Mariam Bukamal, airs analytical studio shows to discuss the tactics and results of the matches.

The organising committee also announced the weekly question on the official account of the league on Instagram (hhskleague), announcing a cash prize of BD50 for the winner. The question is “how many teams are participating in this year’s editon of Khalid bin Hamad Futsal League for Youth Centres, People with Disabilities and Girls?”.
