Whites: Vjay, Senthil, Sivaraj, Melvin and Bobby Reds: Ian, Clarence, Sven, Prakash and Shawn
A tight and tense match at The Cage last week was also, not surprisingly, a low-scoring affair.
Reds took a 2-0 lead only to be pegged back by Whites to 2-2 and thereafter, although the lead shifted hands a few times the teams were never more than a couple of goals apart. At 10pm, Reds led 7-5 but we agreed to play an extra 15 minutes. Whites scored first to narrow the deficit to 7-6 with 8 minutes to play which was plenty of time but somehow the equalizer proved elusive as Reds defended doggedly but had a few chances of their own to put the match away. With a minute left on the clock, Reds notched the crucial goal to walk out 8-6 winners.
