Match 5

HELP Hyperblades vs KDU Chronos

By May Lim (HELP Hyperblades)

It was 9 pm, the teams were all ready for the 5th match of Campus Dodgeball League, sponsored by Revive Isotonic Drink, RTM, Lenovo, Figos, Campus Plus, and M.A.D.

Although the HELP Hyperblades have previously defeated the KDU Chronos with a mighty ratio of 6-1, they weren’t in the least bit over confident. Practice makes perfect, as they say, that that was precisely what the HELP Hyperblades have been doing nearly every evening since last Thursday.

Walking into the court in their red, white and black jerserys, the starting 6 of the match consisted of the usual 3 males, Vinod “The Mosnster” Menon, VK also affectionally known as V-Man, Captain Tan Jun Kit and ladies Jessica Tan, Lim Su-Zen and Ng Shiann.

The first match was a reasonably long one as the KDU Chronos clearly too, have been practicing and giving the HELP Hyperblades a hard time trying to dodge them out. The audience could definitely feel the tension as the HELP Hyperblades sent balls flying only to the dodged by the KDU Chronos, and the KDU Chronos putting up a good fight, even causing Jun Kit to fall to the floor. Despite the KDU Chronos’ efforts, the HELP Hyperblades still managed to win the match after around 4 minutes.

ge in the atmosphere: the heat was ON! Once again, balls flying to and fro, back to back from both sides of the court, and the KDU Chronos even managed to outnumber the HELP Hyperblades. However, the HELP Hyperblades managed to win once again, bringing the score to 2-0.

The last match of the first half was a nail-biting experience for the other HELP Hyperblades watching on: WHO WILL WIN THIS ROUND? Alas, the HELP Hyperblades seemed to have lost their touch in the 3rd match as the KDU Chronos managed to win the game. However, the win was only due to the KDU Chronos having one more player compared to the HELP Hyperblades.

The Dodgettes of today’s matches were coincidentally mostly donning a hip-hop theme, surely by coincidence. The KDU Chronos did a wonderful performance, consisting of 5 girls and 1 guy. Next were the HELP Hyperblades, where 3 girls and 2 guys danced to a song that sang of lipgloss and lollipops.

In the second half of the match, I quote the spokesperson of the KDU Chronos,

“Who will win this round? Will the KDU Chronos pick up their game and beat the HELP Hyperblades?”

To which Denise Chan, spokesperson of the HELP Hyperblades replied, ‘They better!”

The second half had 12 guys in the court, 6 against 6. It wasa heated second half and both teams were fighting for the win. KDU Choronos has a good start, bringing the HELP Hyperblades to 5 players in just 23 seconds. The KDU Chronos put up a really good fight, outnumbering the HELP Hyperblades several times. However, key player Vinod Menon managed to catch a few balls, bringing a couple of HELP Hyperblades’ players back to ‘life’.

Although the KDU Choronos definitely improved in terms of technique and game plan, the HELP Hyperblades once again won them 6-1, as they did in their previous meet on Day 1. Congrats to the HELP Hyperblades, and to the KDU Chronos, keep up the good dodging!

Judge’s Comments:

1. Great pictures, and details on the game. I liked how you included in that bit about what the spokesperson said – showed you were focus not solely on the game but what was happening around the hall as well.

Match 5

KDU Chronos vs HELP Hyperblades

By Fiona Tan (KDU Chronos)

11/10/10

Day 5 : KDU college ( Chronos) Against HELP college ( Hyperblades )

Chronos players today came with high spirits. We were the 1st team to reach the hall.  As we put our things on the chair we did a little warm up before the training. We were training with the second team who came in (SUNWAY College Pharaohs).

The game began between Segi Barbarians and Sunway Pharaohs first at 7. As the game began, we went out to the nearest KFC and enjoy ourselves.

At around 9.00pm, the game between Chronos and Hyperblades started. The players (Wee Liam, Simon, Eric, Kai won, Jesyka and me) was really excited with this game. As we ran for the ball we knew that the chances to beat the Hyperblades were high.

The results of the game between 3+3 was 2-1 (giving 2 to Hyperblades and 1 to Chronos). Well we believe that we can beat them in no time for 6 + 0. Well then it’s the time for the dodgettes from Chronos. I heard loud cheers from the surrounding as the dodgettes dance with all their power. And best of all the players from both Ronins and Chronos was cheering out of their lungs. It was an awesome dance.

After the dodgettes dance it’s time for 6+0 game. As the game start, the players ran and get the ball. Hyperblades was sure sharp and fast like a blade. But Chronos aren’t bad too as the dodge with all they might.

As the marshal blow the whistle showing those 10 minutes has ended. The results between the Chronos were a 5-1. Giving 5 to Hyperblades and 1 to Chronos.

Chronos players were happy as they had played one of a best game in life. The Hyperblades sure was a good opponent to play with no regrets.

We Chronos will come back on Wednesday and with better winning chances. We are going to win the Barbarians and get into the semi-finals.  The spirit of dodge ball is in all of us; no matter it’s a win or lose at the end. I believe the dodge ball spirit will always be in us. We will train better. Well get ready Barbarians, we are ready for you all.  Are you Barbarians?

Judge’s Comments:

1. Definitely can be better, a few grammar errors here and there. Try including one or two pictures or coming up with a great title.

Match 6

TAYLORS LAKESIDE Storm vs INTI Hybrids

By Melinda Lee (INTI Hybrids)

This is it; the game against the only opponent that we’ve tied with so far. A week ago, Hybrids met with the Storms in the cage of dodgeball and it was one of the tightest game CDL has seen. Today, they meet again to see who would bring home the victory which was left unclaimed last week.

Both sides conspired and did a bow towards the judges and audience before the start of the game. The audience cheered and the Hybrids were in their gear to race for victory. During the first minute itself, Storm showed us what we’ve missed: within the first minute, one player was retained; third minute, they outnumbered us and charged with vigor; 4th minute, only two Hybrids were left on the court to defend our points; by the 5th minute, they scored their first. Hybrids were outraged but morale was still high and burning. Hybrids on the court yelled out commands and threw motivating words at each other as the second set started. During the sixth minute, we had our first player out. One by one, we had our players retained and Storms were cheering arduously. Quickly, during the seventh minute, Hybrids slipped another score and Storms were suddenly leading. Our third set started with our best players out there. We re-strategized but we couldn’t match Storm’s sudden show of power, strategy and determination. During the 8th minute, Storm had a ‘double kill’, which retained two players with only one ball. Hybrids started to panic but still continuously charged and defended. With only forty seconds left, Hybrids were outnumbered yet again and our fellow opponents scored another point.

While the second half started after a motivating speech from our captains, Storm’s performance continued to escalate while we were left perplexed, nervous and almost desperate for a score. Everyone knew Hybrids had more than what they showed in the first half, but we were intimidated. Those who stood by the side-lines cheered louder and louder and it brought up morale when we retained 2 players during the 4th minute of the second half. But Storm was right behind us with detainments; within the next 30 seconds, they stored another one of us in the detainment area.

The game went by so swiftly with Hybrids adrenaline and anxiety increasing every second that fell on the clock. The game ended with a 5-0.

Hybrids walked out of the cage disappointed and sullen. But what is one lost compared to the past 4 winnings Hybrids have so claimed with pride and skill? Every great power falls once, but every fall only makes them stronger. Failure, they say, is the best teacher. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and through wars and battles, through loses and wins, they framed their influence and power.

Hybrids walked out today only to return anew. The next time we enter the cages of dodgeball, Hybrid will show and prove their worth, determination and skill.

Today, Storm showed us what we missed last week and impressed, intimidated and blew us out. Next time we meet, Storm will meet with a Hybrid that none has seen before.

Match 7

SEGI Avengers vs CITY UC Tigers

By Hazz (SEGI Avengers)

 

Avengers Humbled By Tigers

It was basically a must win game for SEGi Avengers as they have lost 3 matches beforehand. Even so, by the end of it, they fell off short and pretty much lost their chances to proceed to the next stage. They were beaten by Unity Tigers with the score 3-1. In the first half, it was really all Tigers as they fought and look organized in all aspect. Avengers really look out of sorts and they just could not get a solid game behind them. Performing players from the previous game like Jason, Deva and Donovan of the Avengers really fell off form and did put in the shift that was expected of them. The first half ended 2-0 to the Tigers. In the second half, the Avengers did try to fight back but it was to no avail as the lost another one. It was 3-0 with 5 minutes at this point. This was really a huge climb for the Avengers team to march forward.  Eventually, they did managed to pull one back but it was really too late at this point and that is how the game ended. It definitely is the end of a wonderful journey to the SEGi Avengers as they would have gained knowledge and experience from the tournament. There is one more game to play for the Avengers and perhaps they can end their campaign on a high. They should be very proud of themselves as they really did do a great job for the team. GO AVENGERS!

Match 7

SEGI Avengers vs CITY UC Tigers

By Aman (CITY UC Tigers)

Assalamualaikum..Salam Sejahtera, Salam Satu Malaysia…

First of all again, today TIGER were facing the AVENGER for the second league match after we strike a win last time we were compete. And today as well as last time we TIGER time were targeted tostrike a win again AVAENGER for the second time

For the games today TIGER were seem like more ready than last time which is we setup every move that we going to execute or that we have done for today match. And luckily our strategies were going as its planned. We manage to lead the match with 2 score point in the first half.

However we tied on our end of the first half which make us lost our third score point today.

Starting the second half, we put some more energy and strategies to the game plan so that we can give more challenges to the AVENGER. We struggled quite hard for the winning and we success. Other thing is that we can see AVENGER little bit underestimate us maybe because TIGER were short of their girl player. But that is not the weak point for the whole TIGER team mate.

So better watch out…..

Match 8

UPM Tupai Kilat vs METROPOLITAN Maestro

By Elizabeth Lee

The clock strikes 11! We, the Metropolitan Maestros, rose to our feet, ready for yet another action packed dodgeball game! Our last triumphant match against Taylors Hyenas was definitely a boost to our morale!  Being the last match of the day, we were pumped, filled, and overflowing with adrenaline; set for our second battle against UPM’s Tupai Kilat! Our previous encounter with this new team was victorious. However, the Tupai Kilats are definitely not a team to be underestimated as they exhibit fantastic skill and spirit (and a really cute team logo too)! We huddled up for an inspiring speech by our captain, Aamos. With a loud cheer “GO MAESTROS!” we entered the court with vigor and determination!

The first half began with our team consisting of Guna, Rick, Charlie, Elizabeth, Serene, and Je Hui. With the blow of the whistle, the players rushed forward. Within seconds, we successfully knocked out 3 Tupai Kilat male members through Guna’s great catching skills leaving 3 Tupai girls behind. With further swift motions, two other girls were out and finally, Rick ended the match by giving a headshot (ouch!) to one of the members. Victory! The second match showed our fatigue where we lost two members, Lucas and Aamos quickly and finally leaving only Gene and Elizabeth. The time of the first half ran out causing us to lose the match as Tupai Kilat outnumbered us.

After that exciting first half, both teams took a short rest while we were entertained by the dodgettes. Our Maestro dodgettes, displayed a humorous and enjoyable performance dancing to the beat of club hits; giving everyone a good laugh! Not forgetting, the beautiful Tupai Kilat dodgettes who showcased a talented dance using dodgeballs (extremely creatively thought!).

With the blow of a whistle, the second half began! The Maestros were ready for more! Consisting of Aamos, Guna, Charlie, Rick, Lucas, and Gene, Maestros charged through the court and successfully beat Tupai Kilat! The next game was just as exhilarating with Gene catching a ball during the last moments. However, luck was on Tupai Kilat’s side and they emerged victorious.

The third game showcased Maestros extreme determination by knocking out two Tupai Kilat members within the first minute! Losing focus because of our excitement, we had to roll over the balls. However, Charlie’s amazing catching skills revived our lost members, Marcus and Jon bringing us success! With one minute left on the clock, both the Maestros and Tupai Kilat were filled with excitement to win! Aamos and Guna were knocked out quickly; and unfortunately, we failed to maintain defense as we loss due to Tupai Kilat’s more members.

Final Score: Maestro – Tupai Kilat  4-2

WE WON!! It was definitely another incredible match against Tupai Kilat; leaving us with new experiences and fond memories. As we leave the Politeknik hall, our heads ringing with whistles , and smiles on our faces; we eagerly await our next match!
