The match started with 5 vs 6. Whites had the one man advantage and duly took a 1-0 lead, Melvin finishing off a flowing one touch move. 10 mins in, Chee Sum and Dennis arrived and completed the 7 man red team. Whites were still down by one! and would stay that way throughout. Understood that Laurence messaged derian halfway in to say he couldn't make it.
Reds equalized soon after, 1-1. Whites somehow managed to pull ahead 3-1, then 4-2, before their fatigue showed. Reds were coming back into the game strongly with Sean , Wilson and Kelvin streaming forward at every chance. They made it 6-4 to reds. Whites mustered one more good passing move to pull it back to 5-6. The warden chased us out less than 3 minutes after that.
$2 credit to Stephen for a first report. $2 credit to each of Derian and Sean Luo as team selectors.
Stephen, Chee Sum messaged at 8.23 pm on the WhatsApp group chat to say he had arrived, so I don't think he was late. Kelvin Han messaged at 9 pm to say he was on his way, so I think he was late, together with Dennis who arrived at 9 pm but probably waited for Kelvin.
Usual penalty for Laurence for a no show. Pity, with 3 players left on waitlist.
