Tough to do with new and newer players, but I guess I have no choice but to do it myself.
As Joel, Jeremiah and Ting Han did the most to make sure tonight's game goes ahead, but Ting Han is relatively new, Joel and Jeremiah can be captains. As captains, you have the final say on positions, and can agree to swap players.
On a fairly slick and wet pitch, the game began with Whites a man down but Reds were unable to make their extra man count. It was not long before Kelvin joined in but at this point, a moment of disorganization allowed Reds to open the scoring (1-0). Reds started to take control of the game at that point but some good movement allowed Whites to equalize (1-1).
From there, Reds managed to score two quick goals of some defensive errors by Whites (3-1) and had looked to pull ahead. When a lapse in their defense allowed Whites to pull one back (3-2) and give Whites a lifeline. With that belief, Whites went on to score two more and looked to see the game out when a freak goal from Reds right near the end brought the game back to level terms. (4-4)
In contentious circumstances, a quick ball out from goal allowed Whites to score the final goal, bringing the game to an end.
Final Score: Reds 4 - Whites 5
p.s. I don't know if we want to count the last goal? There was a call for last goal just before the goal for 4-4. But everyone kept on playing right after that, so I assumed we were playing on?
the last goal was so offside! but guess we'll count it since there's no offside rule for our 7 a side games
Pretty even game, neck and neck most times. There was a period of time when reds threatened to run away with the game, but credit to whites for fighting back so well. Have to say both teams struggled to string decent passes together, maybe the wet pitch had something to do with it? Game was played in good spirits, 4-4 before the 5th goal to whites ended the game.
