Reds ran out as the winner with a two-goal margin - 7-5 if my memory serves me correctly. Reds started with 2-3-1 formation where Cap Derian believed the match will be lost/won by the midfield play. Comfortable start for the Reds who took the lead via an own goal and slowly opened up a 3-0 lead. It was pretty much on cruise control with occasional threats from Whites dangermen in Dan and Irwin who were snuffed out by Chern and a combi of Jessen and Derian. Whites did get some form of pressure on Reds going and cut the lead to a single goal but continuous pressure on the Whites rewarded Reds with the 2-goal margin. It could have been bigger if not for Shiwang's heroics between the sticks and some careless finishing from the Whites. Reds could also have done better if the ball was kept on the ground and take advantage of Irvin's finishing prowess (he still got 2 well-taken goals) rather than pumping it up as Irvin will not be getting to them with Chern and myself at the back, could have been closer if Whites were more patient building up the play through Sean, Dan and Irwin with Alex's occasional foray upfront.
