Hard Fought Session Last Night At The Cage

Tue 20 January 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

We lined up as follows at The Cage last night:

  • Reds:  Gilbert, Rajiv, Nick, Rolf, John J
  • Blacks:  Clive, Yaseen, Mark L, Russell, Sushil

Russell and Rolf were making their FIOFAFI debuts.

It was a low-scoring first half hour, with Reds leading 3-1.  Reds were moving the ball well, and while Blacks always looked dangerous, especially with Russell full of running and showing great touches, Reds defended well.

3 goals in 5 minutes then saw Blacks pull ahead 4-3, which they extended to 7-4.  With Rolf not having played football since school, and unable to keep up with the pace of the game, he spend most of the session in goal.   He also took a 5-minute break, during which we played 5 v 4 with modified rules.

However, Rolf had an excellent spell when he returned to goal, as Reds clawed their way back to 7-7 just before the hour mark.

Unusually, The Cage allowed us an extra 10 minutes, and as Reds pressed for the win, Blacks hit them on the break, Clive scoring with virtually the last kick of the game, for Blacks to win 8-7.

It was a tough game, with both sides playing very well.

Overall, Blacks were well organised and showed good movement and passing throughout the game.  Reds had a very good first half hour, and a good spell towards the end, but a dip in the 10 to 15 minutes just after the half hour mark cost them the game.

    yesterday’s game was really tough.. full of running.. Rajiv was on fire.. went for every ball instead of his normal composed self 🙂 it was a good workout.. the clash of heads between Gilbert and Sushil was very scary as i was standing just beside them . i heard a dull thud and thought thats it.. Luckily, both recovered.. Hope you guys are doing fine.. take care..
