Reds take an early 4-1 lead and although Whites close the gap in the middle of the game, the heat of the day and having to chase the game take their toll on Whites, as Reds run out comfortable winners.
With no game scheduled for Wednesday, the Tuesday game was switched to a 7-a-side at SBSA. Ziliang brought in a few friends to get us to 12, so we went ahead 6-a-side, with Ziliang and friends on one team. Despite one of the friends not showing, Ziliang and friends won comfortably.
Campaigning by Babs gets the team selectors and line ups that the regulars wanted - the regulars in white against Derian and friends plus newer players in red. A no show swings the balance in what would otherwise have been a competitive game in favour of Whites. The game is tied at 2-2 before being one short takes its toll on Reds, and they concede 3 late goals.
We struggle to get enough for 7-a-side, with Rockstar agreeing to play despite only want to play in an 8-a-side to make up the numbers, and being "compensated" with the captaincy. Blacks are too strong, and although Whites do well to keep it level at 2-2, the additional handicap of losing a player to injury (without any compensating change in line ups) proves too much of a hurdle to overcome.
