Whites: Guillaume, Ling Chong, Nic G (c), Harimukar, Chris Forno Reds: Soon Leong, Ian, Jordi, Chris M (c), Stuart Lee
The early exchanges were very even and we had to wait close to 10 mins for the 1st goal, which went to Reds.
Reds then got into their stride and established a 5-0 cushion before Whites pulled one back after about 30 mins. Reds eventually extended their lead to 7-2 and the match ended 10-3 in favour of Reds. From a statistical standpoint, Whites can count themselves unfortunate as they probably had the same amount of possession as Reds and certainly had as many shots at goal as Reds but luck eluded them on the night. To their credit, Whites never let their heads drop at any stage and their incessant pressure forced Reds to defend stoutly right to the very end.
As a postscript, it was my first game at The Cage after an almost 4-month absence and it was good to be back.
