|Low Hong Seng & Aaron BD U10 Semi-Finalist|
In the Boys Singles U10, Aaron had a gallant run up to quarter final where he again met with Yap Juin An - the second time in two weeks. This time, Aaron gave a little more resistance but Juin An’s outlasted Aaron in the rallies. Aaron was beaten again but not without a glimpse of what he was capable of.
In the Boys Doubles U10, Aaron and Low Hong Seng first time partnership made it to the semi-finals before they were halted by the SSBA duo Wong Vin Sean & Lim Yang Feng.
Ryan’s campaign in the Boys Singles U12 was again dismal where he was taken down by Jamey Ong from Perlis BA in the third round. In the doubles with Darren Tan, they were also drawn to meet the Perlis player again and this time with partner Virrayut in the quarter finals. Once again, the game was stretched to deuce but they just did not have the tenacity to finish off the game.
Aaron and Hong Seng walked home with a medal and RM80 cash voucher each. Ryan on the other hand went home with a pocket full of cash from his industry as a lines-man. The coach gave encouragement to the boys to keep their spirits up but we knew in our hearts kind words were not enough. Having stripped bare their weaknesses for the opponents to see, the boys have to go back and work doubly hard to fine tune areas in their game which needed improvement.
