In the 2012 UFL Cup Campaign, Kaya FC kicked off with Green Archers in their group stage opening match. having drew a decent group, Kaya FC knew the mighty Green Archers were no push over squad. With fierce and heated games in previous match ups before, Kaya was in for a competitive cup opener. With Kaya’s first game back since the end of the 2011-2012 UFL leagues season, memories of a title lost by specifications of rules and a deficit in criteria, the squad held fresh in their minds that details mattered, goals mattered and the end result will not only be determined by your points, but a culmination of performance. Although winning was and is always a high priority, performance and getting results on all levels of competition is what hurt the team last season, and it will become the teams main focus for the success in the Cup. As the opening whistle blew, both teams were off to a string start. With convincing chances from both teams throughout the first half, Kaya FC managed to stay slightly ahead with a 1 goal lead. When the second half started, pushing the pace of the game and seeking a second goal was the objective. After having missed golden opportunities to bury the game, Kaya found themselves with an unstable lead which gave the Green Archers just enough space to steal and equalizing goal with a slim minutes left in the match. As we analyze the up and downs of the game, great attempts and great saves displayed themselves. Some might say Kaya lacked the finishing touch, other might say the result was fair from convincing tempted by both team. But how ever it is said, Kaya still needed a reevaluation in targeting all aspects of performance in order to get to the solidify the results they seek and avoiding minor details to stack up against them in later rounds of the Cup. A draw meant one point for each. This may just have a slight effect on group standings moving into the quarter final stage of competition.
