Tuesday Night At The Cage: 12 May 2009

Posted by rajiv on 12 May 2009

The default line ups for tonight were:

  • Whites: Wade, Murray, Andy P, player from The Cage, Sze Kuan
  • Blacks: John J, Nick, Neil, Alan, Melvin

Great game, enjoyed it a lot. As I had been away for a while, was only too eager to play. Perhaps a bit too eager. At times felt like a rottweiler chewing at the bit. So apologise for that.  After the game, felt like I had been barking out orders (especially Melvin), and I am sorry for that.

We (the blacks) got ahead quickly and were 3-nil up. However instead of choosing to defend the lead this is when we decided to try and get more and I think that was a mistake. I am including myself in one of the people trying to get forward but in doing so left ourselves open at the back.

The determination that the whites had to get back and take over the score was the reason why we probably should have defended our lead. Then we were playing catch up. We fought hard to bring it back to 9 – 9, but then in hindsight, after all that effort we perhaps should have defended in full force. Instead we went forward and tried to win it.

That strategy against the die hard whites was a little like a headless chicken. Have to say though we the blacks battled hard, got ourselves organised when we had to and gave the whites a run for their money. Who, lets face it did try to cheat a little bit with their false penalty claims, deliberate smack of the ball in my face and let’s not forget their time wasting; trying to get me to lie down for three minutes. Shameful. :)

13 – 11 tight and tough from both teams.

[Admin note:  Players who fill in to make up the numbers will not be included in the player poll unless they are added to the Participant List as being interested in playing with us again in the future.]

    The post was originally put up by me as a bare summary.

    Neil SMSed me the result after the game, so I added the following comment:

    Thanks Nick.

    I’ve just realised you hadn’t played since the Saturday game at Turf City on 2 May 2009.

    Hey Rajiv

    My word press account is active now and i am using my hotmail

    Accordingly, I’ve moved Nick’s comment into the post, and attributed the post to him. However, I’ve left the date and time of the post as at the original.

    I’ve also deleted all the earlier comments.
