The game was threatened to be cancelled due to the heavy rain across the island and late withdrawals. However, the desire to burn the pineapple tarts was stronger. Pitch was a little water logged at the corner flag and in front of the goal. Started the game probably 10 to 15 mins late. Whites took the lead from Jensen “head”, a clearance that Jessen intercepted with the head and directed towards the goal. It remained that way for a while till reds equalised through ray. Both team struggled kicking or controlling the ball much due to the slippery pitch and everything else.
Whites scored a disputed 2nd goal, the ball was alleged to have crossed the line and it stood after some exchanges. Reds equalised again to make it 2 all. Whites kept their shape and covered each other better and that proved to be the difference. Reds surged with 3 more goals and missed a couple of good chances. Whites lost its shape and the team passing rate dropped. Last goal was called, and jessen vardy scored the final goal for his hattrick and went home with the match ball.
