Reds: Ian, Dave H (c), Dilesh, Dom, Srini Whites: Sivaraj (c), Senthil, Robbie, Chris M, Joel C
Dom was about 13 minutes late and with the match played at 5 vs 4, even the usual handicap (shooting only inside the area), did not stop Whites from taking a 4-1 lead. With Dom's arrival, Reds became steadier but never really recovered, having trailed 10-5 and whcih was then extended to 14-8, which was how the match ended. The teams then reset the match to 0-0 and played best of 3 goals. However, with Reds leading 1-0, time was up and we had to make way for the next booking.
Overall, it was a good technical game played at a decent tempo but Whites were decidedly superior on the night.
Wow that's my first $1 credit! It was pretty rough for reds. With Dom being late as he was having his nails done and the 2 bald guys on reds not pulling their weight....I tried to rally the troops and managed to prevent a bloodbath......
