Mark joked on the WhatsApp group chat before the game that the game was off, and Clarence missed the confirmation earlier and later that it on, so he thought it was off and didn't show.
Fortunately, I had my gear with me and joined Whites about halfway through.
Even with 5 against 6, Whites were already 3-1 up when I joined the game. Reds went close on several occasions, but Whites made the most of the extra space of playing 6-a-side and Reds pushing players forward to grab a further 2 goals to go 5-1 ahead.
Reds pulled one back, but Whites grabbed a further 2 to go 7-2 up. We played last goal, which Whites grabbed to run out 8-2 winners.
$1 credit to each of Derian and Hail as team captains.
Besides Hail who I've played with a few times at ecp, the rest were new to me. Some were 1st timers I believe . Reds were a bit relaxed in playing while whites were much organized. But as game went on the guys from red got into the competitive feel and began to push harder and made more runs. We played better than before but whites still showed great teamwork. Overall despite the scoreline, still a good game. Enjoyed it.
