It was a night to remember for the whites as reds dominated the game with great passing, good control/touches and team spirit.
game started 5 minutes late as we waited for 2 other red members to make the entrance. both team were organized by their captains and game was soon underway. within 5 minutes (or maybe less than that), reds took a shot at goal and broke the dreadlock. Red didn't stop right there but carried on piling the score to their advantage. whites were disoriented and disorganized as a few of us were running like an headless chicken. whites passes was everywhere and procession was lost pretty quickly.
while reds were still basking in the scoring ability, whites was actually drowning to try to keep up with the score. last ball was called and at least whites put 4 goals into the net of reds. needless to say, reds had an fantastic game with 13-14 goals. sums up with a score of 13/14 - 4 to reds.
Thanks Joel .. actually I thought the score was only 10-4 when it ended?
Personally I think players wise, both teams are very much even but Whites had a few first-timers and were lacking someone in the middle of the park to do the "dirty work/co-ordination" whereas we have Sean doing his high quality work there as always. The rest of the Reds were always moving into space even without the ball and making themselves available for a pass which is always helpful.
Don't be too bothered with the score I say, a few more sessions and your guys will be ready to exact revenge

a game that I didn't know to laugh or to cry - perhaps should have taken hints from the signs leading up to the game and stayed at home.
Disorientation was an understatement - holding the ball, no quick passes, movement and communication are the nails used for the coffin to put the whites to bed. Comical goals conceded, back passes that were intercepted and scored just the kind of stuff that demoralized the team. Standing around and not fighting for half balls and rebounds was another factor. Raihan tried hard till he picked up a knock. Other newbies were outplayed by the more experience players on opposition side with the Khalsa pitch who stood their position rather than go all over the shop.
one of those games I just wish I've stayed at home.
