In  the  'irst  game  of  the  inter  Hall   recreation  games   (IHRG)  11/12,   our  very  own  Hall   3   billiards  team   started   our   campaign   against   Hall   11,   12   and   2.   Despite   their   best   efforts,   the   team   unfortunately   crashed  out  after  several  closely  fought  matches.  Hall   3   got   off   to  a   great   start   in   their   'irst   game,   beating  Hall  11  with  relative  ease.  Zhang  Yabei  and   Russell   always   looked  in  control   throughout   their   4-­‐ball   games,   and  their   well-­‐placed  shots  ensured   our   opponents   never   really   got   going.   The   team   won   their   next   game   as   well,   registering   an   emphatic  3-­‐0  win  over  Hall  11.  Sterner   tests   were   to   lie   ahead,   and   Hall   12   provided   exactly   that   for   our   billiards   team.   The   considerable   gulf   in   skills   was   apparent,   as   one   Hall   12   player   pulled   off   unbelievable   shots   one   after  another  seemingly   effortlessly.  Despite  giving   our  best,  the  team  eventually  lost  1-­‐3.  It   soon   became   apparent   that   our   quarter'inal   hopes   would   rest   on   a   crunch   encounter   against   Hall  2.  Despite  being  mentally  and  physically   tired   having   to   play   well   past   midnight,   the   team   put  

their  game   faces  on  and  gave  their  all.  Every  table   was   extremely   close,   but   alas,   Lady   Luck   was   not   on   our   side.   Russell   was   undone   by   a   mere   3   points   scored   in   the   last   cue,   and   our   opponents   got  the   bene'it  of  a  dubious   call  on  Jia  Wen’s  table.   The   ill   luck   was   all   the   more   apparent   when   the   match-­‐winning   shot   from   Issac   careened   off   the   cushion   centimetres   from  the  pocket,  and  trickled   right   outside   the   opposite   pocket,   effectively   handing   the   game   to   the   opponents   on   a   platter,   giving  Hall  2  the  3-­‐1  win.  Despite  the  exit,  the  Hall   3   billiards  team  did  us  all   proud   with   their   performance   and   'ighting   spirit.   Well  done,  team!  Players:   Lu   Jiawen   (C),   Zhang   Yabei,   Isaac   Pung,   Russell  Ang,  Cai  Baoou,  Chong  Lih  Sheng

Our   darts   team   endured   a   gruelling   day   of   competition   on  the  'irst  day   of  the  darts  IHG.   The   Hall   8   Comm   Hall   was   rife   with   excitement   as   the   teams   from   the   different   Halls  gathered   in   the  same   venue   practicing   and   competing   side   by   side.   And   so   it   was   that   our   team   went   in   on   the   day   of   competition  with   only  the  ambition  to  put  all   they   had  practiced  into   action,  nothing   more   than   their   best   was   asked,   and   nothing   less   was  given.   The  'irst   of  4  matches  of  the   day  was  against   our   neighbouring   Hall   16.   It   was   close,   but   unfortunately   we   lost   out   by   a   narrow   3-­‐2.   Then   perhaps  affected   in   moral,   we  lost   the   next   match   against  Hall  4  4-­‐1,  and  then   again   to  Hall  13,  3-­‐2.  

Nonetheless,  we  did  not  allow  these  setbacks   to  hinder  our  spirits  and  our  team  came  back   to  take  the  last  match  2-­‐3.  It   was  a  tough   day   for   us   no   doubt,   as   victory   seemed   elusive   today.   But   it   is   still   some   time   before   the   'inals.   It   is   still   early.   We   will   still   do   as   we   please.  See  you  in  the  'inals. -­  Joshua  Mok

First  game  of  the  season  for  the  defending  hockey   champions   started   off   in   the   wee   hours   of   the   morning  against  Hall  10.  Hall  3  players  started  out   strong  and  con'ident  led  by  captain  Nicolette. Between   swift   and   skilful   passes   and   impressive   interceptions,   Hall   3   players   dominated   possession   of   the  ball.  Just  minutes  into  the   game,   Ugenie  broke  through  Hall   10’s  defense  and  scored   the   'irst   goal.   Thereafter,   multiple   fouls   were   committed  within  the  penalty  area   and  hall  3   was   awarded   penalty   corners   which   eventually   led   to   Ugenie  bringing  in  our  second  goal,   a  solid  end   to   the  'irst  half  of  the  game. Having  gained  a  comfortable  lead  and  warmed  up   to  the  game,  our  players  came  back  stronger  in  the   second   half   keeping   the   ball   behind   the   middle   line   for   the   entire   half   against   our   quickly   tiring   opponents.  Our  lead  was  furthered  when  Nicolette   converted   a  rebound  from  a  penalty  corner  to  take   home   a   sweet   victory   over   hall   10,   3-­‐0.   Good   job   hall  3  hockey!

Our   next   match   will   be   played   Wednesday   21st   December   with   hall   3   looking   to   emerge   tops   of   our  preliminary  group. The  match  was  held  at  NIE  Hockey  Pitch  at  1100Hrs -­  Wong  Jing  Ying

The  boys  began  their  journey  towards  Hockey  goal   with  a  resounding  4  –  0  victory  against  Hall  4.   It  looked  to  be  seemingly  one-­‐sided  affair  from  the   start   when  Kai  Bin   bagged   the  'irst   goal  in  the  'irst   minute.   On   the   waterlogged   pitch   under   the   intermittent   rain,   passing   and   maneuvering   was   made   dif'icult.   However,   our   boys   surpassed   expectations  under  the  cHallenging  conditions  and   outclassed  in  all  aspects  with  fast  'lowing  play.   This   proved   to   be   too   overwhelming   for   the   opponents   evident   by   the   three   more   goals   that   followed.   Silky   dribbling   and   immaculate   stick   work   by  the  captain,   Haikal,   and  penetrating  runs   by  our  mid'ielders,  Harry,  Winfred  and  Chee  Meng   left   their  defence  stumped.  Also,   it  was  the  robust   set  play  during   the  penalty  corners   contributed   to   the  bulk  of  the  goals.   With  a  comfortable  victory  tucked  in  their  pockets,   the  Hall  3   Hockey  team  looks  forward  to  their  next   game   on   Wednesday   (21/12/11)   and   towards   bringing  back  the  Gold  to  52  Nanyang  Walk.

On  the  second   day  of  the  Darts  competition  for  the   inter   Hall  recreational  games   (IHRG)  11/12,  Hall   3   Darts  team   led  a  'ierce  series  of  'ights   against  Hall   15,   10   and   14.   Despite   their   best   efforts   at   precision,   they  were  regrettably   unable  to  emerge   triumphant   during   the   remaining   rounds   of   the   match.   Things  did  not  look  too   optimistic   during   Round   5   as   Issac,   Jonathan   and   Raymond   lost   to   the   competitors   of   Hall   15   at   their   own   boards   with   scores   of   2-­‐1,   0-­‐3   and   1-­‐2   respectively.   However,   they   have   to   be   applauded   by   not   letting   these   initial   setbacks  get  to  them   and   calmly  discussing   their   tactics   for   the   next   round   instead.   At   the   girls’  side,  Pei  Ling  steadfastly  manage   to  beat  her   opponent   at   her  board   with   a  score   of  2-­‐1   to  the   team’s   sole  victory  whereas  Jocelyn   unfortunately   was  unable  to  overcome   her  opponent   and  scored   1-­‐2.   Round   6  proved  to   be   further  disadvantageous  for   our  Hall  3  team  as  they   were   completely  defeated   at   all   5   boards   when   pitted   against   Hall   10.   The   guys   struggled   valiantly   at   giving   their   best   shots  

but   were   unable   to   beat   their   trickier   opponents     (   0-­‐3,   0-­‐3,   1-­‐2),   and   the   girls   only   did   slightly   better  (1-­‐2,   1,2).   It   was   a   tough  round  and   things   were   looking  dark  for  them,  but  they  refused  to  let   it  get  them  down.   It   was   in   Round   7   that   our   Darts   team   pulled   through  and  achieved   a  resounding   victory  against   their   last   competitor,   Hall   14.   In   what   it   seemed   like  a  series  of  gripping  boxing  matches,  the  team   delivered   pummelling   blows   to   all   5   opponents,   attaining  identical  scores  of  2-­‐1  individually.  It   was   a  great  boost  to  their  morale  ,   and  also  admirable   of  them   not   to   let  their  previous   get  to  their  heads   and  kept  their  spirits  going.   Unfortunately,   despite   their   crunch   victory,   our   team   had   to   crash   out   after   Round   7   as   they   suffered  2  losses  out  of  3  rounds.  But  still  our  Hall   3   Darts   team   did   us   proud   with   their   resilience   and  never-­‐say-­‐die  spirit.   -­  Denis  Zhou

Hall  3  faced  off  with   Hall  9  for  our  'irst  Tennis  game  in  a   highly   anticipated   match   with   evenly   matched   tennis   skills.   We   'ielded   8   players   who   played   a   total   of   5   matches. In   the   Men’s   Singles,   tennis   veteran   Warrick   Tan   outplayed   his  opponent  with  an  array  of   sharp  slices   and   immaculately   placed   shots.   He   ended   the   match   double-­‐ quick   time  with  a   resounding  6   –   0  thrashing   of   Hall  9’s   player. Next,   Glenda   Ng  and  Dilys   Tan   represented   Hall   3  in   the   Women’s   Doubles.   Despite   having   little   tennis   background,   these   two   'ighters   put   up   a   valiant   effort   against  Hall  9’s  tennis  duo   which  included   an   IVP  player.   The  girls  got  off   to   an  excellent   start  and  had   a  2  -­‐1  lead   initially,  however   the   more  experienced  players  from  Hall   9  proved  too  much  for  Glenda  and  Dilys  to  handle  and  lost   2  –  6 If   there  was   ever   a  greater   walkover  than  MM   Lee   Kuan   Yew’s  victory  in  Tanjong  Pagar  GRC,  it  was  in  the  Women’s   Singles.   Local   tennis   legend   Ong   Shao   Fang   effectively   walked   over   her   opponent,   removing   any   hopes   of   winning  in  her  opponent’s  mind  right  from   the  warm   up   rally.  Shao  Fang  cruised  to  a  6  –  0  victory   to  end  the  match   in  one  of  the  fastest  times  ever  seen ��in  this  competition.

Yeo   Xi   Wei   and   Ng   Yi   He   took   to   the   court   in   the   Men’s   Doubles   against   the   strongest   pair   from   Hall   9.   Both   Xi   Wei   and   Yi   He   played   excellently,   displaying   the   unyielding  spirit  of  Hall  3.  Despite  being  down  2  –  5,  they   persevered  on  and  took   two   straight  matches,  with  team   captain   Xi   Wei   dishing   out   ace   after   ace   at   one   point   in   time,   and   Yi   He   showing   excellent   form.   However   the   team  from  Hall  9  won  the  last  game  and  we  lost  4  –  6. Lastly,  our   mixed  doubles   pairing   of  sports  sensation  Yao   Feng   and  resident  beauty  queen  Sarah  Kua  faced  off  with   the   captain   of   Hall   9’s   tennis   team.   Despite   Yao   Feng’s   powerful   strokes   and   Sarah’s   effortless   lob   shots,   the   more  experienced  team  form  Hall  9  took  the  set  as  we  lost   0  –  6. It   was  a   close  match-­‐up   and  our   team  certainly   did   all  of   us   proud   with   their  superb   display  of   'ighting   spirit   and   camaraderie.  As  the  saying  goes,   if   you  learn   from  a  loss,   you  have  not  lost.  I’m  sure  our  team  gained  much  valuable   experiences,   and   will   walk   into   the   next   match   with   renewed  faith  and  con'idence.  Let  us  continue   to  cheer  on   Team  Hall  3  as  they  prepare  for  their  next  match!

For  the  'irst   Carrom  game  of  the  season,  Hall  3  was   set   to  compete   against   the   players   of   Hall   11   and   wow  …  what  an  incredible  start-­‐off!  All  of   our  'ive   teams   came   out   undefeated   with   a   marvellous   score  of  5-­‐0   to  top   the   charts!  Huge  props   to  our   Hall’s  Carrom  Team! The  second  set  continued;   this  time  against   Hall  7.   It   surely   took  lots  of  effort  to  match  the  awesome   skills   of   our   team   members   with   the   'inal   results   being   3.5-­‐1.5   (3   wins,   1   loss   and   a   draw).   Nevertheless,  Hall  3  still   came   out   as  a  winner  for   the  overall  set! The   third   round   continued   in   the   evening   where   we  showed   our   very   best   against   Hall   1.   With  the   'inal   score   being   similar   to   the   second   set,   Hall   3,   again,   dominated   the   match   with   3   wins,   1   loss   and  a  draw.

Night  approached,  and  the   fourth  and  the   'inal  set   of   the   day   started;   Hall   13   this   time   as   the   opponent   team.  Our   team  did  their  very  best  with   an   overall   score   of   2.5-­‐2.5   which   was   later   determined   as   a   loss   due   to  one   missing   point   (7   Vs.   8   points).   Nevertheless,   this   is   the   ONLY   loss   our   hall   had   for   the   day.   The   game   will   continue   the   following  day  and   it  is   undeniable  that   we   will,   again,  show  what  we  are  made  of!  Go  team!  Go! -­  Kurtis  Aung

In  the  second   game   of  IHG   hockey,  we  faced  Hall   6   who   had   just   emerged   victorious   from   their   previous  match   the  day  before  against   Hall   5  with   a  score  of   1-­‐0.  Just   mere  moments   into  the  game,   Laura,   #16   dribbled   past   an   onslaught   of   4   defenders   and  drove   the   ball   right   past  the   goalie   with   a   smashing   hit.   She   then   went   on   to   score   another  2  more  impressive  goals,  earning   herself  a   hat   trick.   At   half   time,   the   score   stood  at   3   –  0   to   Hall  3.  

Laura,   #16  took  a  long  shot  from  the  top  of  the  D,   and   forward   Estee,   #10   connected   with   the   ball   perfectly,   with   a   well-­‐executed   de'lection   into  the   goal.  

The   second   half   of   the   game   saw   both   teams   'ighting   very   hard   for   the   possession   of   the   ball.   Both   were   aggressive   in   their   attacking   and   tackling,   and   Hall   6   even   deployed   one   player   to   man  mark  Laura,  #16.  

-­  Nicolette-­Clare  Ong

Both  teams   followed   each   other  closely,   back   and   forth  past   the  middle  line,   not  letting  up.  The  Hall   3  forwards  diligently  trying  to  get  the  ball  pass  the   goal   line   with   multiple   shots   at   goal   but   Hall   6   players   managed   to  defend   well,   depriving  Hall   3   the  opportunity   to  secure  another  goal.  However,   a   scoring  opportunity  arose  when  we  were  awarded   with  penalty  corner  nearing  the  end  of  the  match.  

With   this   4-­‐0   victory,   the   Hall   3   hockey   female   team   has   advanced   to   the   winner’s   pool   and   is   now  through  to  the  quarter'inals.  Well  done  girls!   The  match  was  held  at  NIE  Hockey  Pitch  at  1045Hrs

The   Hall   3   volleyball   girls   served   up   a   brilliant   start  to  the   competitive  season  by   beating  Hall   15   with  a  2-­‐0  victory.   The  girls  cruised  along   with  a  comfortable   lead  in   the  'irst   set   making  it   clear  to   the   supporters  and   opposing   players  that   the   'irst   set   would   be   ours   for   the   taking.   The   second   set   saw   the   opposing   team   'ighting   much   harder   to   bring   the   overall   score   to   a   tie   with   a   win   in   the   second   set.   The   girls  from  Hall  15   put  up  a   good  'ight   and   allowed   our   players   to   show   off   their  spectacular   defense   techniques.   Despite   our   opponents’   efforts   at   keeping   the   score   tight,   it   was   evident   from   the   sudden   increase   in   the   strength   of   Shi   Ying’s   spikes   that   the   'irst   set   was   just   a   warm   up.   Our   girls   managed   to   widen   the   score   margin   during   the  crucial  'inal   points   of  the  game  and  won  their   second  set  with  a  score  of  25-­‐19.   Well   done   volleyball   girls!   All   the   best   for   your   next  match!

The   boys   continued  their  campaign   towards   Gold   with  a  1-­‐0  victory  over  Hall  2.     Playing   in   cool   weather,   the   conditions   were   set   for   a   comfortable   victory   but   it   was   not   to  be,   as   they   were   up   against   worthy   competition.   This   was   evident   through   the   solid   possession   play   of   our   opponents   which   put   constant   pressure   on   our   defence.   However,   never   failing   to   rise   up   to   the   occasion,   our   boys   held   down   a   tight   lock   on   the  defence  and  fended  off   all  advances  of   the  Hall   2  forwards.   The  task   for  victory  were  impeded  by  line-­‐up  and   formation  changes   but  our  boys   kept   'ighting,  with   attempt   after   attempt.   There   were   worried   faces   amongst   supporters   when   the   score   was   deadlocked  at   0  –  0  in  the  late   stages  of  the   game,   bringing  on   fears  that   the  game  would  be  taken   to   Penalties.   However,   salvation  was  delivered  in  the   form   of  a  last   minute  goal   by   Kai   Bin,   putting  the   ball   in   the   left   side   of   the   net,   after   manoeuvring   through  a  crowded  defence.  

With   this   victory   which   many   of   the   players   agreed   was   hard   fought,   Hall   3   have   quali'ied   to   the  Quarter-­‐Finals.   The  match  was  held  at  NIE  Hockey  Pitch  at  1600Hrs -­ H  Kubo N.B.   Our  boys   would   be   playing   against   Hall   14   in   the   Quarter-­Finals   on   Friday,   30   December   2011   tentatively   between   1600   and   1800hrs.   Please   do   lend   your   support   to   the   Hockey   team   and   come   down  for  some  fast-­Ylowing  and  exciting  game  play.   You  will  not  be  disappointed!

Carrom   games   continued   for   the   second   day   and   our   team   players   could   be   seen   active   and   passionate  as  ever,  showing  the  Hall  3  spirit! The   'irst   round   of   Carrom   games   started   and   as   with   the   nature   of   the   game   being   chance   dependent,   lady   luck   was   not   on   our   side,   apparently.  Hall  15  got  the  better  of  us,  leaving  us   only  with  2  wins  and  3  losses. Such   losses   in   fact   fueled   up   our   team   players   furthermore,   and   wow,   what   a   comeback   we   made!  Hall  3  topped  the  charts  in   the   following  set   against  Hall   10,   and  yes,   it  was  an  undefeated  5-­‐0   score!  Rampage  indeed! The  day  wrapped   up   with  a  'inal  set   against  Hall   6   whose   players   consisted   mainly   of   experienced   seniors.  Lady  luck   was  apparently  not   on  our  side   again  this  time,   and   sadly,  we   'inished  the  set  with   a  win,  2  losses  and  2  draws.

Hall   3   unfortunately   had   made   an   exit   from   the   Carrom   games   but   it   made   me  very   proud   to   say   that  WE  did  what   we  pleased  as  proud  as  could  be!   To   all   other   halls,   look   out   for   an   even   more   awesome  Hall  3  team  next  year! -­  Kurtis  Aung
