Stiff line ups and a very balanced selection by Jeff and Wilson as we ended the night on 7-6 to whites. We had a new match ball too after our regular one had one if its panels worn off.
Reds ran off to an early 2 goal lead within minutes of kick off with Daniel and Wilson doing most of the damage upfront. Jeff halved the deficit with an audacious half court shot that caught the reds keeper out of position. 2-1 to reds in the early minutes.
Derian up-ed his game tonight with lots of forward running and was rewarded with a hat trick of goals. Most of them from his own hard work.
Good attacking and defensive play from both sides saw a continually end to end evening with lots of shots, missed chances and fouls. Everyone was really giving it their all. I must credit Nipun who did an excellent defensive job on the night.
Final goal was called at 7-5 and David drilled a hard and low shot after whites struggled to get the ball out of their own half to end the evening.
Gd game with both teams testing one another till the end. The two early goals took the gloss out of the Whites game but the come back and opening a 2 goal lead till the end was great comeback. Derian's "pick-pocket" header was good, poacher's one.
