By NA, 11/09/22, 10:45PM EST


PAKA FC fell victim to another quick goal to start off their match against Sporting Serotonin, #23 Olsen broke through a defense that has been described as Swiss cheese because of how many holes their opponents exploit each week and put his team up 1-0 just 5 minutes into their match. Routinely, this would result in PAKA FC doubting themselves and becoming timid, allowing their opponents to dictate the game. This would be no routine game for PAKA FC, fighting back and clawing their way back in the 17th minute when #10 S. Lee found the equalizer courtesy of his left foot from just outside the box. Sporting Serotonin failed to convert on a few chances that were given and came out in the 2nd half motivated and playing with intensity, the sudden manic like press from Serotonin proved to be too much to handle for PAKA FC who would concede the go ahead goal just minutes after the 2nd half restart. 

Mental mistakes in the early stages have plagued PAKA all season and looked to be their downfall once again, having lost 8 straight coming into this match, to say it was unexpected for PAKA to walk away with any points in an understatement, especially considering their inconsistency in their attack in the final third, but once again, this is was not going to be like any other game for PAKA FC, with just a handful of minutes remaining, #8 H. Kang shrugged off his maker and made a brilliant run into the box and was clinical with is finishing, pushing his shot just passed the outreached arms of Sporting's keeper to bring the game level 2-2, with his teammates surrounding him, Kang reminded his team there was still plenty of time left to get another and that they needed to be locked in on defense. 

PAKA was able to keep Sporting on their side of the pitch, never allowing any real threatening chances and would hold on for their first point of the season, a result that does nothing for PAKA FC except give them a confidence boost, no matter how small it may be, but their draw puts Trading Laces in prime position to win the division when the play Sporting next week in what is now a must win for Sporting if they want to avoid the playoffs and win automatic promotion to Sexto. PAKA FC can play spoiler to Birdeaux FC if they can manage to pull off another result with Birdeaux FC sitting 3 pts back from Sanko who currently occupy the last playoff spot in 5th place.
