Reds dominated with slick passing and was 1 up when Whites added a 9th player, as Jason was late and Vincent already debuted........the extra # was to Whites' advantage as it stifled Reds' passing game, and soon resulted in a 2-1 lead for Whites.
Reds went up 3-2 before a harmless long ball slipped thru the Reds' defence & Jye found himself with a 1-on-1 situation , and the veteran neatly tucked it away to make it 3-3. At this juncture, Han Peng unfortunately hurt his knee and was helped out.
With the clock @ 6.20 pm, the golden goal was called and it happened........1 min into xtra time, the most harmless, weak shot rolled casually over 20 m and as it lost speed 2m ahead of the Reds' stand-in goalie, it slipped under his raised foot for a victory to the Whites..........confirming that match-fixing is truly gripping Asian football down to the grassroot level !
As Reds lost mainly to a congested game, the big pitch should be confined to 8 x 8 and also the choice of Stephen, Wing Kong, Neil S and Jason was designed for their running game......
To be fair, the Reds were deffy the stronger team ;D Good thing that Whites had the extra man and our numbers managed to snuff out many of the gaps that the Reds were trying to exploit.
It was also good to see many players being responsible defensively, not to mention our stalwart fullback Neil and able goalie Arjit! Vince, Jye and Kong also did a good job helping out in defence many times. Again we depended much on Jason for our attack and also on Han Peng for his incisive right wing running before he took a knock on his knee. (Hope you have recovered Han!)
Vince had a good debut game with some slick control and passing in mid and also scoring the winning goal ;D Reds were very strong in almost all depts, running in to space, dribbling, heading and were constantly threatening Whites goal. I don't know how many blocks were made to sure goal shots (Tks Jye!! )
Look and Anthony were always free on the attack with White def too preoccupied with the silky dribbling skills of Red forwards. But fortunately for Whites, they didn't get the passes to press the advantage.
Was really exhausted by the end of extra time (approx 6.20pm). Good workout tho!
