Several new or newer players, and several of the regulars opting out as team selectors, so I will suggest line ups after noon tomorrow. I've added a team captain poll. I've included everyone who has played at least 12 games in the current 6 month period and has not specifically opted out as team captain (in addition to opting out as team selector).
Final score 6-4 to Reds. It was a hard fought battle with Reds always in the lead but with Whites always battling to draw. On Reds side, Mike and Steffen were full of running all over the pitch while effervescent Gerard kept White def really busy with his ability to nvr stay in one spot. Kong as usual kept us steady and safe at the back while Zach and Steffen were continuously marauding down the wings providing many options to Reds midfield. Parminder continued the wing threat when he went up and Shaiful kept the back steady when Kong took a turn at mid and in goal, he even scored a goal for his efforts. Speaking of which the goal of the day was Danny' sweet strike from just past the hallway line, I was the closest so my bad but I never expected his to strike low and hard so far away and was thinking he wld do the diagonal cross to Elvin lurking on the right.
Elvin dutifully scored 2 goals for the Whites notwithstanding the tender attention by Kong and myself while CH made numerous runs down the left flank causing quite a lot of trouble for whites. Manish and Simon were unlucky not to have scored more but they were really a handful with Manish launching those bullet shots at goal.
There was a disputed penalty against Reds (someone shot the ball which hit my chest and part of my arm) but we eventually gave the penalty which thankfully Elvin failed to convert hitting the post.
