I never get sick of saying this : "The Ball is Round". This is in response to the all the discussion about the lineups being unbalanced and Reds having a much stronger team - Whites beat Reds 8-4.
I have to take my hat off to White team for their team spirit, self-belief and never say die attitude. From the whistle, Whites were just buzzing with the mids marshaled by Anthony (who had a rampaging "Mahrez" day), together with Jon and Dom and the sole attacker led by Ben, the went on top after the bell restarted due to some late comers and the scoreboard was reset to zero.
Reds were on the ropes the whole time with the defence being robbed many times and pinned back. While Rainer, Joshua, Kah Boon, Elvin and Jake strove valiantly to pierce the White defence, the fact that the whole team including Ben (striker) went back to defend and the whole team moved together in countering was too much for the Reds with Ben being the target man that was never ever in one place. Even when we tried to clamp down on midfield, the sheer pace and power of the White players rendered the Reds somewhat impotent.
Jake did well to cap a few goals for Reds but we were totally outplayed, out muscled and outrun. But not detracting from White's spirit, it was a game where they deserved the win!
