Whites: Philip S, Andrew B, Sven, Kodaka, Chris Sim
It started off 5 (Reds) vs 4 (Whites) owing to the late withdrawal of Abeely for the Whites and we played about 25 mins before help arrived in the form of Andrew B. At that stage, Whites were already showing lots of potential in that even though they were trailing 3-1, they played without imposing the usual handicap on Reds (i.e. Reds were free to score from anywhere on the pitch).
The scores were reset to 0-0 on 25 mins when we started the 5 vs 5 match. Whites didn't take long to stamp their dominance on the game it was frustrating that each time Reds pulled a goal back, Whites replied almost immediately to maintain their 3 to 4 goal cushion. Eventually, Whites closed out the game 15-10 winners in what was a relatively high scoring game, seeing that 25 goals were scored in 35 minutes!
Upon reflection, Reds were strangely lacklustre and jaded (despite having played with one additional man for 25 mins) and I wondered whether this was because collectively, Reds were a considerably older team than Whites! Somehow I don't think so but only Rajiv will be able to confirm stats like this!
