Some pre-match chatter about the “pandemic” in China and some professional looking warm ups by the Whites before we kick off the evening.
Both team traded blows and prodded with no clear cut chances and remain 0-0 until Jeff pops up and score a cheeky lob into the right corner.
Can’t exactly remember the sequence of scoreline but Reds got to a 4-2 lead and seem pretty comfortable at that stage. That scoreline remains for quite a while as Whites continues to get back into the game while Red squandered a couple of sitters to blow the game out of sight. Even then Reds still seem to hang on to the lead.
The turning point came when Mark scored a powerful header that seems to come out of nowhere. Whether it’s nerves or tired legs but reds seem to crumble slightly and Whites started to get a massive boost from that goal. Smelling blood, Whites scores a couple of goals more to take the lead through Gow and Daniel and took the lead for the first time at 5-4. The goal from Daniel was from a tight angle, took a deflection, went through a sea of legs, hit the post and got in. One of those “boh bian” moments for the Reds.
Thankfully, Whites got a goal back moments later almost in the same fashion when Jacko pass took a deflection and went in on the other end of the pitch drawing level at 5-5.
Last goal was called as we go into Fergie time at 10pm. Resembling Trent/Origi corner taking goal on Barca, Sean took advantage of the disarray at the corner flag and sneak a pass to Daniel for him to pop home the night. Whites won 6-5 and could have gone either way.
Ball credit please. Hat trick by Daniel (again!) - he always seems to score from the most impossible of angles. 6-5 final score to white. Reds failed to take their chances in an otherwise balanced and entertaining evening.
