A 7-4 win for the Red-Blacks. BTW Blues had a goal deducted for wiping out the referee but it didn’t alter the final result. Though Blues had a lot of the play, they could not find their scoring touch. All credit to the Red-Black defenders, their tactic of packing the goal area paid off. It was the usual end-to-end stuff and demonstrates how much our skills have improved now that we have settled into the Craigholme hall for over a year.
What about fouls? Plenty of them but nothing too serious apart from one or two high-balls! First time we’ve managed to get a ball stuck on the high window ledge. Quite a lot of carried fouls, yes really. They are not noticed when the perpetrator doesn’t score the next goal. See more about the carrying-a-foul rule on another post on this Blog.
