Scintillating game in nice cool weather, though the wet pitch on the flank made it slightly dangerous.
Both teams started off rather tentatively, with a couple of probing forays from the Whites who opened accounts by scoring first. After which they were always in the lead. It was always going to be low scoring game (at least against the Reds) with Kong and Kien both in defence cutting out thrust after thrust. Final score was 3-2 to the Whites, another strong come back story by Reds who led by Ants, Jon and Siva stepped up when Whites started tiring and created havoc in Whites defense which led to a deflected own goal by Darren who was superb in his new role as central defence and another in the dying minutes by Kien after a mad scramble in front of Whites goal mouth with the ball ricocheting multiple times across the goal mouth.
Before that, nicely taken goals from Raminder who shot from just inside or at the D after a corner from Lee and a nice cheeky pass from Ram again to Gerard which saw the ball hit the post and trickle in. I can't remember the 3rd goal, think it was Darren or Lee?
Interesting tactics when the other team starts to step it up when the opposing team's legs start to fail you. Fortunately, for Whites we had Ram and Darren in vital positions (Mid and Def) and they managed to control the damage.
