SINGAPORE, 17 APRIL 2015: Queensway Secondary School ended Bowen Secondary School’s winning streak in the National ‘B’ Division Girls’ Football Championship after beating them 3-1 in a penalty shoot-out on 15 April.
This was Queensway’s first-ever ‘B’ Division Girls’ title, after unsuccessful challenges in the past three years.
Champions for the last two years, Bowen were determined to maintain their dominance in the division as they took the game to Queensway at Serangoon Stadium.
Despite repeatedly carving out chance after chance, the reigning champions were wasteful in front of goal and Queensway goalkeeper Victoria Soo was rarely called upon to make a save.
Bowen’s profligacy continued right till the penalty shoot-out. Out of the four attempts made, only Nur Faradila Rafidi converted her spot-kick for the team.
Queensway on the other hand, were clinical in the shootout. Soo, Nur Izzati Rosni and Vanessa Tan dispatched their spot-kicks with aplomb to helped their school dethrone Bowen and earn their maiden ‘B’ Division title.
