Both sides started cautiously, trying to get into their flow with the score staying at 0-0 for the first 10 mins.
Whites were the first to break the deadlock , with Nic going down the right, hitting a cross/shot which Daniel tap in. Reds, pushing for the equaliser, hit the bar twice as the Whites struggled to contain the Reds. The equaliser finally came from Jacko, capitalising on a defensive mistake, drove the ball home into the bottom left corner.
Building on the momentum, Reds linked up well to take the lead with Francis doing "Schurrle" finish, blasting the ball into the top near post corner. 2-1. Reds score another goal through Jeremiah to make it 3-1 soon after before the Whites pull one back through Derian, providing a nice half volley finish. Reds then went on to score another 2 (Imran and Jacko), taking the lead to 5-2.
Not giving up, Whites continue to push on, trying to come back into the game. However, this was undone by a morale-crushing goal conceded, when Jeremiah tame shot went underneath Nic's feet and roll into the goal.
Sean scored one to make it 6-3 before the Reds score 3 consecutive goals without reply to kill the game off at 9-3.
Gow, recovering from his early game slip-ups, had a solid game in defence, Francis (scoring his first Giffa goal) put up a steady and hardworking performance, winning the ball from Daniel a couple of times(definitely not an easy task) and Jensen fitted in well.
MOTM: Jacko with 5 goals and Imran for his interceptions and spreading of balls which created many opportunities for the Reds.
