Several players who haven't played on Thursdays much, or for some time, or at all, so I will suggest line ups after 4 pm tomorrow. I've added the team captain poll. I've included those who played have played on Thursdays before (minimum 12 games in the current 6 month period).
It has been raining, but looks like it's stopping (as was the case yesterday). I suggest:
Tinghan with 2 votes is the team captain for Team 2. For Team 1, tie between Calvin and Arthur with 1 vote each, but Calvin gets in ahead, having played more games in the current 6 month period (36 to 16).
Game ended in light rain @ 8-7 to Whites. It was a close match but played in good spirits with each team taking turns to sprint ahead. It started off with Reds racing off to a 3-0 lead with good running from Jordi, Calvin and Srini up front. However don't know how Reds changed formation after I came out of goal and we then ended up with only 2 defenders, Charpin and myself with Arthur and Leon on the wings and Calvin in mid and only Srini upfront....this did not work well for Reds and Amazingly, Whites scored 7 goals in a stretch making it 7-3 with a couple of silly goals from defensive errors.
The yo-yo then continued as Reds then recapitulated and scored 4 of their own to level at 7-7 at which time we called for the final ball. Typical of these kind of soccer matches, Reds were on the ascendancy and smelling victory after lagging by 4 goals, committed players to attack and alas, a quick counter by Whites left Reds outnumbered at the back and White scored the final goal to make it 8-7.
Fun workout, played in good spirits and nice weather. This is why I like Khalsa games, no pressure, no shouting and good clean fun!
