Took some time but line ups finalized with both sides balanced. Final scoreline reflected that with tight marking and wayward finishing from both sides. Whites took the lead with jessen squeezing in a shot between 2 defenders legs, leaving the keeper stranded. Reds clawed back with a scrappy melee in the box with opportunistic derian finishing it off. Whites then led 3-1, with Keith trying to sort out his legs ended with an og. Reds held tight and ended the night with a consolation og from jessen for a final 3-2 scoreline. Gow n Sean had plenty of good chances each, but 0 conversion. Dan as usual missing his courtesy weekly sitter. Reds had plenty of determination with Jeff getting into his finger pointing stare, whilst I gave a few pieces of my mind. Leo saved a goal bound shot, but much of his passes weren't killer like today. August n der were fantastic keepers, with kelvin pretty much as fit as a fiddle. Naz was a great target man, on a better supported day, he could have had 10 assists. Nipun nicked a few balls and did well holding up whites attacking play,just couldn't finish tho. Capt willy kicked the ground and capt dave went back to sleep. Till next week!
Such a wholesome and detailed summary by David. One of those rare days that Capt Wilson’s team won. Commendable captaincy by David who kept the red team calm and collected while letting whites tire out slowly. Obviously not a great tactic as kelvin and Daniel were bursting with stamina. Final score 3-2 to whites. Yours truly scored both the opener and closer for both whites and reds respectively.

detailed summary by Capt David. Very close game, unlucky with two OG by the Reds but they were due to sustain pressure by the Whites. High pressing game by the Whites worked well for them and quick closing down; exploiting same spaces behind the defense to put the pressure.
$1 credit to each of David and Jessen for a first report for Reds and Whites respectively. Additional $1 credit to each of David and Wilson as captains. $1 ball credit to Augustine. $1 credit to Jeff for a second report for Reds.
