We only had 11 earlier this morning. Even when we got to 14, there was a late withdrawal which left us one short. Rockstar, who only wanted to play 8-a-side, was persuaded to come in to keep the game at 7-a-side.
On the WhatsApp group chat, Andrew and Cedric requested that we avoid red today (as we did for yesterday's game). Darren is the only one who knows all the players, and he thinks the line ups are ok. No other comments, so line ups, captains and colours confirmed as follows:
Whites: Damian, Paul T (c), Darren, Elvin, Jason, Max, Jon 9 Black/Blue: Vincent, Andrew Y, Peminder (c), Cedric, Christian, Rainer, Rockstar
Everyone, please be early.
After the game, please post reports and comments on the game below.
Thought it was 7-3. Basically a white-wash for Blacks...Whites were dying after we went down a man and even before that, Blacks just had too strong a frontline with Chris, Rainer and Cedric taking advantage of the fast counter of a 7-a-side game. Nevertheless, no excuses for a poor showing from the White team. We kinda couldn't click and when it seemed like we were starting to string some good passes together, players started to tire in the hot weather.....Shout out to Jason for fighting to the end and doing alot of the running with Darren...the rest of us were simply knackered.....
Kudos to Blacks Captain Raj for showing up despite it being 7-a-side and his rule that he would only play 8-a-side games....
