Reds looked like a more balanced team on paper with players who have better familiarity with each others play. However, it was the Whites who came out storming with 3 goals, both teams went for 2-3-1 formation but Whites did better by exploiting the wings with Jordi, Joel and Guolong getting into nice spaces behind the Reds wingbacks creating chances and goals for Whites. Reds pulled a couple of goals back but Whites continued their momentum to make it 5-1. Kah Boon had a good game running his socks off with good close control and playing very good link up play with Jordi. Whites were patient and making Reds chased the ball most of the game.
Ray was in red-hot form for Reds and single-handedly getting the goals to keep the goal margin respectable and within distance to snatch an equalizer or winner. Whites movement were good all night and goals were conceded due to some laps of concentration by the Whites players who handed the possession to the Reds easily and were punished.
Great play by Whites for the discipline, determination, link up play and movement. Final score 8-6.
