A few new or newer playes, and several players who haven't played together before, much or at all. As Tim T is familiar with most of the players, I discussed line ups with him. Suggested line ups as follows:
For Team 1, the weekend regular with the most number of games in the current 6 month period can be captain. That would be Leo with 16 games. For Team 2, Tim T with 22 games in the current 6 month period can be captain. Captains can agree on colours.
Game was competitive with the whites perhaps slightly edging out on the passages of play but the reds held on well with some inspired goalkeeping and desperate defending.
The teams traded goals with each other till about 4-4 around the 35 minute mark.
With a small tweak, the reds started to play a higher line and started to press the white backline giving them no time to consolidate.
In a short span of ten minutes, the passage of play became like this, the whites goalie passed to the last defender, he got pressed, hoofed the ball up. The midfield lost the 50-50 and reds rapidly countered in an instant.
This repeated for like 10 minutes and the reds striker managed to score four brilliant goals from the rapid counter attacks as they pulled away comfortably.
Game ended with something like 10-5 in favor of the reds due to the sudden burst of goals before the game was called after the time reached.
