Early in the game, Daniel, playing last man, spotted Sean dazing in goal and took a shot from his own d. The post saved the keeper from some early embarrassment.
Whites took the lead, David drilling home through a crowd. Delon equalised for the Reds, when a seemingly misplaced pass from Keith, eluded 2 defenders, found Ray who squared it for the knock in.
The game was full of goals, Whites regained the lead thru Nic, Reds equalised (OG), whites lead again (Alex OG).
Then came the turning point, Reds scored 3 goals in quick succession (Ray, Gow, Sean) to tip the scales in their favour to lead 5-3.
Every time the whites scored, the Reds managed to respond almost instantaneously. 5-4 (Jessen), 6-4 (Gow), 6-5 (Daniel), 7-5 (Ray), 7-6 (Derian?) to Reds. This probably had a morale deflating effect and the game ended 9-6 (Ray & Gow) to the Reds.
Mention-worthy players or events:
Ray and Gow had telepathic understanding on the night, linking up well for several goals. Ray finished with 3 goals and 3 assists. Gow defended well, and still managed to score 3.
Jessen scored the goal of the game with a sepak takraw volley from a tight angle.
Being a basketballer is not excusable for Keith's moment of madness as he handled the ball in the area (2nd time this year), conceding a penalty in the process. Delon did well in goal to save his pal from more condemnation.
Alex continues to be a revelation at centre back, playing some what like a libero. For even better performance, the "old man" can work on his stamina though... =)
Derian's ball was used.
Good workout, till next week... happy voting!
