It was a line up of the Saturday regulars vs the not so regulars. Whites consisted more of the Wednesday Khalsa regulars who occasionally hijacks the Saturday and Sunday games in Turf City. Whites started off the stronger team and took an early 2 goal lead, courtesy of goals from Wilson and CH. Reds pulled 1 back after a lapse in defence. Whites were controlling much of the midfield in the early stages and had some next interchange of passes and looked really organised. Reds were heard squabbling amongst themselves, but finally managed to get their act together after Whites seemingly ran out of steam in the final quarter of the game. Jun her, Ced and Christian were leading the Reds in the fightback and from 2-1 down, managed to put the scoreline to 3-2. Whites had to launch a fightback of their own with a goal from Jessen to make it 3-3. Last goal was called and goalkeeping/defensive error again saw a harmless looking kick in put into goal by a combination of headers from Jessen/Arjit to make the final scoreline 4-3. Hotly contested and evenly matched game overall.
I think Derian should be fined $2 for that match report rather than credited! Closely fought game but pretty incredible how one can not bother to mention Raj who scored an excellent hat-trick, including the winner with a brilliant header at the death from the so called 'harmless' ball that i whipped in loL! So harmless it led to the winning goal!
Here's the facts from a Red scoring perspective:
Christian assist for Jason for Reds first goal Babs assist for Raj first goal Jun Hur assist for Raj's second goal Babs "harmless" assist for Raj's hat-trick and game winning goal!
I think Derian needs to go back to wearing his glasses for GIFFA games lol
Hahaha you guys always crack me up!!! But rightly so, I think Raj feels deeply aggrieved that he was not given due credit for his brilliant hat trick performance last Saturday... his performance was so outstanding that he literally "retired" his paris of hot smoking futsal shoes after the game and used it as an ashtray instead!?!?!
Babs also deserved special mention for the quality of his assists and the commendable fighting spirit that he displayed to claw his team back from what seemed like an unassailable lead 40 min into the game...
Overall it was a great game, well contested and finely balanced play out in good spirits!
