Contrasting from Sat's game, the Sun game was a very controlled one with both Red and White sides maintaining very disciplined defences. So it was not surprising that after 1 hour of play, the final score stood at 1-0 to Whites.
I was generally quite pleased at the final result as the White team had quite a few attacking players ie. Elvin, Brendan, Tim, Josh....and we had more than our fare share of defenders. Despite that, Darren did a great job in center-mid by constantly moving and creating space for us to maneuver out of defence while constantly nipping at the heels of White midfield and attackers and at times, literally plucking the ball of the feet of White players. Shaiful also kept a very close guard in defence keeping many White attacking attempts out.
It was in the last 10 mins that a hard shot from Elvin trickled out of Andrew (goalies) hand and Brendan was closest and the first to react to stab it in! That was the only goal of the match. Newcomers Hoden and Max had relatively good debuts.
It seems like the 6-7pm slot is now quite popular so a reminder for all players to be early. We will start on the dot at 5pm in future to fully utilise our 1 hours worth of playing time.
