Babs is out as he hasn't recovered from yesterday. .... Andrew B (-$26) in in his place.
Apart from Andrew coming in for Babs, I'll swapped Brendan and Simon to give Team 1 more experience in Babs's absence. Although Brendan, Damian and Fred have all played 21 games over the current 6 month period, I suggest Brendan take over from Babs as captain as I think he is more familiar with the players on the team, and has more experience being team captain in our games.
Cracking Game is all I can say. Both White and Red teams had good players and there was an even flow to the game with excellent passing moves and one touch play both ways.
Whites started with a back line without any natural defenders consisting of Tim in the center, Lee Carter on the left and Gerard on the right. In the mid, we had Richard, Kydd and Simon and Kodaka as the only striker. Whites scored the first 2 goals as Reds took a longer time to settle while Whites were surprisingly fluid up in attack with Kydd, Richard, Simon and Kodaka all heavily involved in the play.
Reds managed to equalise at 2-2 and then 3-3 through Dilesh and Fred? However Whites started to impose themselves when we swapped Tim who was once again doing an excellent job in central Def to midfield and he took a cracker of a shot outside the D which went in. Kydd was the other one whose shooting prowess was unstoppable! Amazing shots. Whites went up to 5-3 and hit the posts on many occasions including off a fantastic volley from Kodaka whose stint in goal proved that he was also a very able goalie
On Reds side, Dilesh, Brendan, Jake and Fred were full of running up front and did threaten quite a few times resulting in many corners. While Kong, Jon and Dylan were kept really busy in defence by the progressive play of Whites involving not only the mid and strikers but also the defenders.
Game ended when the ladies team called time despite both sides wanting to continue which showed how much we were enjoying the match.
